I love the lighting and lasers in Jacob's Ladder.

Love the bells/chimes? in Cygnus X-1. And how dark and quiet it gets for a bit during the song. Very suspenseful.

Love the lasers at the end of Xanadu when Alex is playing the awesome signature riff. :guitar:

This tour has been amazing. If it really is the end, they have outdone themselves in my opinion, and given me some incredible memories that will last the rest of my life. :notworthy:

Also saw the Calgary and Vancouver shows. As a Rick-o-phile, I loved seeing both of Geddy's double necks in action.

Aside from brilliant shows, the thing that stuck for me was the R40+  logo at the end of the Van show. Didn't notice it in Calgary...

The lasers were awesome on this tour!  Loved them.

Seeing "Losing It' at the LA Forum was it for me.

I loved the KISS standee during "Lakeside Park" too.

As others have stated - so much to love about this show.  The setlist, the reverse chronological theme, the stage set up, the lights, the video presentations, the vintage drum set, the orchestral chimes, the double necks, the sound was GREAT, Geddy sounded GREAT singing, etc. etc.

Only minor gripes - didn't get to see Losing It (with it played so infrequently, but I understand with the logistics of having a guest), TFE was not represented (should have had one tune!), and Alex did not smile as much as he did on past tours.

A few of my favorite moments though, at least in the stage show - the opening video was my favorite ever, and I enjoyed the exit video as well ("F you puppet!")  and also the incredibly awesome lasers during the end of Cygnus X-1

Holy shit, I hadn't seen those before!  That is so amazingly wonderful!  Wow!

I can't wait for the R40 DVD to come out so I can see what else I've been missing.

I would love for a bonus feature on the DVD to be a static long shot like that simply to show off the wonder that is Howard's lighting design.

I saw 3 shows and loved every minute of each one but here are the items that made each show unique, personal and memorable to me:
Seattle -- meeting up with fellow fans before the concert and finding that complete strangers can indeed be long awaited friends
San Jose -- NATURAL SCIENCE!!!!!  my all time favorite!
Las Vegas -- watching Alex sit off-stage drinking bottled water and chatting with (I assume) his guitar tech while Neil & Geddy were doing their solos.  I had the aisle seat of Row 12  so Alex was only about 20 feet (?) in front of me and am still surprised that security left the gate open to back stage.
