What are yours?

For me, the surprise triple-threat of Hemispheres Prelude, Xanadu, and Cygnus X-1 was amazing.

I also loved the Trailer Park Boys appearance in the Roll The Bones video.

Also, the encore video and subsequent homage to themselves for the last few songs was great. Putting amps on chairs, just awesome.


Can't forget the barrage of ever-increasing washing machines and amps during the songs either :lol:

Does anyone know who thought this up?  Whose imagination is responsible for this R40 show?  Whoever it is, is quite the talent.  It was very well done from start to finish.  Very creative.  Most important (at least to me), very touching in many ways.

The end video is the most poignant to me ("Exit...Stage Left).  That is, before the exchange with the  puppet at the dressing room door.  :)

The show, setlist, truly amazing. The stage de evolving into the past was clever, creative and a touch nostalgic.  For the first tour in three decades, they did a fair representation of all eras. Yes, a little light on the synth "one neck era" but we got a lot of that on the CA tour.

The Cygnus block was astounding. Also, putting that and Jacobs Ladder, Xanadu, played in one huge stretch! And setlist C, adding Natural Science on the top and then 2112 on the end...a stunning block of live Rush. For the first time since 1980, no need to balance out classics with something synth or something new. It was a pure, true time machine. Makes one wish 🌠 there were more tours like this.

I love this show design more than anything since the Presto bunnies.  Only annoying thing is the guys taking the amps away during the songs.

The best part to me was the light show they did, it was spectacular and made the concert feel a lot better

I hought Alex said Ged was kind of the mastermind behind that stuff.

I started getting excited when they got about half way through Roll the Bones...then once the second half of the show started, I was pretty awe struck!

(although getting to hear Losing It during the sound check was pretty cool!)

I think I have mentioned this in another thread before but, the most favorite part of the show for me was when the curtian raised for the 2nd set and I got to tell my lovely "That is what the stage looked like the 1st time I saw them" Really the icing on the cake as the whole show was a spectical that I was trying to absorb and hold every moment in captivity knowing that truely this may be the last.

There is absolutely no part of the show I do not love.  I think this tour is much more than the sum of its parts.

Second set. This set brought back the feel of a real RUSH concert. They couldn't get rid of those corny first half stage props fast enough for me.

The Wreckers, Between The Wheels, The Camera Eye, Xanadu, Cygnus X-1, Jacob's Ladder, Lakeside Park, What You're Doing, and Red Barchetta have been the highlights out of shows that I've seen.

Yeah, it gets a little distracting at times, but their decision to do it was pure genius, if only due to the fact that they have a lot less work to do when the show is finally over. :lol:

The light show really challenges the music this time.
Both are superb displays of what great minds can achieve.
