I dunno, I think Rush has been mainstreaming 'in' since the '07 Snakes tour. For whatever reason.

Not you dude, the movie.  ;)

I think I heard that they chose to leave Limelight out since they were doing some longer songs later and felt it was the lesser of the 3 big songs to leave out.  There is no way they are going to skip TS or TSOR.....just not happening.

Limelight and Freewill.  Don't know how you leave those songs out of the last tour ever in favor of multiple songs from Clockwork Angles and Snakes N Arrows that 75% of the crowd has never heard before.
They chose the songs they liked, and if people who have come to Clockworks Angels/Snakes and Arrows tours don't know those songs then they were asleep, they have been played a lot.   I thought they were great! :finbar:

I personally know the songs and they are fine (although I can't say I connected with the last two albums).

Based on what I saw at the Boston show, I'd say that 75% of the peopl there either did not know or did not care about hearing the CA and SnA songs..: looking around the vast majority were sitting on their hands, basically waiting for the later songs to come on... Once they did, a lot more people were up out of their chairs cheering/dancing etc..

A couple of those easily could have been eliminated and replaced with a couple more "classics" that the majority of fans would have loved hearing.

Didn't they leave spirit of radio out a few times on the last tour?

My door Into Rush was the Rio DVD about ten years ago.
It took a few years for them to totally grow on me, but back then, when I guess you would have to have called me a casual fan, I was markedly more impressed by leave that thing alone, and red sector A, than anything else on that DVD.

I love Tom Sawyer on Rio, but because of the audience energy on it. Amazing.

What's inexcusable is the fact they played the abbreviated Lakeside Park on the 24th of May without singing the 24th of May part.

JR, did you end up going to MSG? Way way back in the era when Rush used to tour eastern North America!

I didn't make MSG this tour although it was planned, I did Denver instead...Rocky Mountain High! I've seen shows at MSG. Most Rush concerts where at the Brendan Byrne Arena and PNC Arts Center. My favorite was 3rd row at Radio City for the Signals tour.

1. No Presto, HYF, or Power Windows songs
2. Performing The Camera Eye as the B song instead of Witch Hunt

Other than those two things this tour is pretty much perfection.

Yeah, there really should have been one inclusion from "Hold Your Fire".

"Turn the Page", "Lock & Key", and "Mission" would have all been fantastic inclusions into this set! :)

The band is playing songs from the most recent albums because they pride themselves on not being a nostalgia act, even on a tour designed to induce nostalgia.  They like their new music and want to play it.

The band isn't playing music from PoW, HYF and Presto because those albums suck and most fans don't want to hear them.  The last tour drove this point home quite clearly.  The crowds were far more into most of the new material than most of the synth junk.  During Territories security came around with shock sticks to wake up those people who forgot to get up and buy a beer or take a leak.

YES.  Exactly.  Part of the reason I love Clockwork Angels so much is that it proves the band is not resting on its laurels.  Why do half of their fans want them to?

Because that half of the fans are a bunch of old fuddy duds.
