Great parts
- Geddy hitting those incredible sustains in Headlong Flight
- The first performances of Losing It
- Pretty much everything from Natural Science onward, so many great old rarities. 2112 Presentation was also extremely shocking to me, as he somehow managed to hit all the notes, night after night.

When in doubt... revert back to Xanada!

One question ... where was Geddy's black Ricky double?  I never saw that red one before.

I think he gave it to a museum some time ago

Hemispheres Prelude, Book I and Xanadu being played almost back to back was also my fave. I went from singing along to having my jaw dropped.

However the most memorable to me was the light show during TSoR and 2112.

For the shows I went to -

Even though it wasn't the original, Geddy pulling out a black Rick 4080 double neck
The Camera Eye - sounded the best of anything on this tour
Animate rocked this tour - in the top 3 songs for me
2x Cygnus + Xanadu goes without saying
What You're Doing

I also LOVED How It Is on this tour

Being just my fourth Rush concert (although all Rush concerts, I would assume, were awesome), I still had a feeling of euphoria for seeing them live. So, every part was my favorite. However, there were a few standouts:

Opening video, starting at the beginning of their music, working their way up, and then playing "The Anarchist"
"How It Is"
"Between The Wheels" is now one of my favorite Rush songs
"Hemispheres," "Cygnus," and "Xanadu" were outstanding
More "2112" than usual
Medley encores of "Lakeside Park/Anthem" and "What You're Doing/Working Man," even though no performance of "Working Man" will ever top the performance in Cleveland on the Time Machine Tour
"Losing It" live, even though I wasn't at one of those concerts
