They did it again...another great show.  Slightly different from NJ, glad I decided to go. 😃

Quite the experience from the Chase Bridge made even more enjoyable with a gentleman and his nephew next to me rocking out the whole night from new stuff to old.

I'm going to miss this... 😞

Can't believe what I have just witnessed!
Calling it a GREAT SHOW would be an absolute understatement.
I honestly can't accept the fact that this might have been the last time that I have seen them live.

You are correct, GREAT is an understatement.  The last two shows, NJ & MSG, are the absolute best two shows I have seen, by any band.

Same here! Second set was amazing. I was on the floor 3rd row in section F in the aisle. Two guys in front of me almost got kicked out for filming. Cute girl in the section next to me was singing every every word! Just an amazing crowd. Amazing time. Any one else from the floor here?

Great set. I still hold that the counterpart tour was their best (that I've seen) but MSG R40 was a truly great show

Fourth row center...aisle seat on Geddy's side.  The only down side was that everyone and their mother would sneak up to the third row and take pictures.  Security let them do it if they took less than 15 seconds or so.  But the guys played great, we got the Dink again, the crowd was roaring, and Geddy sounded good.  If this is the last time I ever see them, I can live with this being my experience!

This is hands down the best :rush: show I've seen performance wise and set wise. I have nothing else to say. Was definitely the more memorable show compared when I saw Steven Wilson last month (at least in having fun and the experience of being there). If this is the last time I'll ever see the band I can totally live with it. Geddy sounded f***ing great considering this was the last show before they take their well deserved break off. :ebert:

^^ Yeah I agree. Geddy sounded so good singing wise. I was really not expecting those sustained  high notes like that!

Everyone around me jumped at the fireworks. It was hilarious. No idea how Neil could deal with that 😎

Hahahaha, I knew the moments with the fireworks/pyro during Far Cry (and the loud blast at the end of 2112 Overture) would come and I cheered whenever they happened, but this is the first time I've heard of people literally caught off-guard during that. I guess they had no idea that's always been part of the show since the Snakes and Arrows Tour. :lol:

That pyro is nothing compared to KISS or Crue, so maybe I'm just used to it.

I was in the 10th row Geddy side. The show was just fantastic. They're just so tight, it's not even human.

For how difficult this one show was to get tickets for less than $300... Gotta love all the empty prime VIP seats first few rows lower bowl. Almighty dollar. In Dolan we trust. Beautiful building, awesome acoustics, terrible teams and owner, driving up prices all over sports...Squeeze you for all $ you got then bury you in rules and security.
