First off, long long time since I've posted here!  Saw the show in Phoenix and here are my favorite moments -

1. Xanadu (double necks and double bass drum double wow)
2. Hemispheres 2 and 1
3. Jacob's Ladder
4. The Anarchist.  A surprisingly strong opening song.  

Does anybody know the 'setlist' for the songs playing prior to the show start?  I know Neil personally picks those tunes and I recognized some Tull and Genesis.  There were some pretty good songs and I'd love to check them out.

There must be quite a bit of Genesis. I also remember Man of our Times and Behind The Lines. Also ELP's From The Beginning.

Every time I hear Fool's Overture now it takes me back to the feeling I had before each Rush concert. I think I've heard it every show I've been to for the past few years.

back in the day, I wrote to Neil via Modern Drummer magazine and asked him about two specific songs that I had heard on the Hold Your Fire and Roll the Bones pre-show tapes.  Those tours were back in the day before the internet, sound hound, shazam - so identifying strange songs (that not so many Rush fans were aware of) was difficult.  I described the songs to Neil - and this is how he replied:

I'm not familiar with either of those songs offhand. Have to check them out.  And I remember the days when Neil used to write his fans.  Boy are those times long gone.

The Sugarcubes is where Bjork got her start.  I saw then open for U2 back on the ZooTV tour in Oakland...where they were booed off the stage.  :(

They're biggest hit, aptly titled..."Hit"

I can certainly see this being played, or something like it, much more than that Kraftwerk song.

He still does, but it's more of a collective now rather than individually.

I can certainly see this being played, or something like it, much more than that Kraftwerk song.

It was this song - on the Summer Roll the Bones tour (unrelated note: I won front row tickets at the show in Mansfield, Mass - by bringing a can of soup to a food drive that the band was sponsoring!)

"Tour de France" was in the pre-show music for the Hold Your Fire tour, which I think works in an odd way.

A couple other early pre-show songs I remember (though I can't verify exactly which tour) - "Big Generator" by Yes, "Cult of Personality" by Living Colour, and "Inertiatic ESP" by The Mars Vola (that one was recent - S&A?)
