Definitely Roll The Bones.  I didn't like it before this tour.

trailer park boys sold you didn't it?

I loved how Julian still had his drink.  Peter Dinklage was pretty awesome, too.

Cygnus x-1....because it's instrumental and we don't have to deal with the screaming hysterics of the lyrics.
Much better as an instrumental, I think.

More? None really. Heard so much of CA on the last tour. I think Geddy sang them better last tour than on this one, and the other songs they've done I've already liked....VT's stuff...my opinion hasn't changed for the better.
Damn beat me to it... :lol: ^^^ This

Edit: I should mention I am not so sure about the singing of the CA songs. Seemed like a struggle then and now to me anyway...

To me it sounds like he's struggling more on the CA songs, but I could be misremembering the CA tour since I can't watch the CA Blu-ray due to seizure-inducing cuts.

I think Geddy sang everything better on this tour than on the CA tour, including the CA songs. A lot better.

I think he's singing the older stuff better than the CA stuff. At least when I heard a yodel, that's when it would come.  ;)

He struggled on them on the CA DVD that much I do know. As far as the tour in it's entirety I haven't a clue. I have only watched the DVD twice myself for the reason you mention...

I saw 5 shows last tour and at the ones I saw, he sang the CA pretty well, but the rest of the stuff kinda sucked.

Allow me to rephrase that -

Cygnus X1 .. because even with the best aspect removed, it is still a highlight of the show

He definitely appreciated me more after he heard the guy sitting right behind us mention how much he paid for his ticket. :o
Did you get the deal of a lifetime or what, DS? ;)

Julian ALWAYS has his drink. He was even holding it when he was a samsquanch and they were beating the crap out of him.

Yeah.  The vocals and storyline never did it for me, to be honest.  But the music is amazing!
