I made it to Boston to spoiler free (other than what the band *ruined* with the Xanadu trailer (! :wtf: ) and I saw Anthem in this forum - yeah, yeah, I know ... spoiler expected ... I got what I deserved).

In May, I went into total Rush media aversion.  Spoiler free to the Boston show June 23 and I was all the better for it. :)

Anyone who was able to stay spoiler free all the way up to the L.A. show deserves a medal.  :P

I had a group of guys sitting right behind me at the LA show who did manage to remain spoiler free. I will say that the opener in Tulsa was by far the best show for me because of all of the awesome surprises in the setlist - like Cygnus X-1, Lakeside Park, Anthem, and What You're Doing.  Because of that I can totally understand why so many people wanted to remain spoiler free.

I ended up going to the Tulsa show because I wanted to remain spoiler-free (I love [good] surprises!) and knew I couldn't do so and participate in this forum.  It was so wonderful being part of an audience where we were able to discover the setlist (and stage show) together.

Yes, one of the reasons I regret missing the opener. If I get another opportunity, I will make sure that doesn't happen. :)

Has nobody got any love for HOW IT IS!?!?!?!

I LOVE How It Is!  I am so glad I was able to watch them perform that song.  It's a much better song than OLV.

We saw this one in Austin.  My kids have always had a fondness for that song.  They were just old enough to understand Vapor Trails for what it was when it came out and we talked a lot about some pretty heady topics because of that album.  As a result, I have a fondness for that song.  I particularly thing the poppy, upbeat tempo against the darker, downtrodden lyrics are interesting and even poignant given the context of the lyrics (then again, I think Neil is actually a pretty smart and creative guy even if he is a social recluse bordering on a jerk, at times).

As they finished playing it in Austin, Neil crossed his sticks, hunched over, with his head bowed.  It was up on the main screen.  His movement was likely more the result of the energy he just exerted playing the song, but my son leaned over and said he couldn't help but wonder how hard it is for Neil to play that song and he clearly saw the body language as having a second meaning.  I tend to concur.

People can hate on that song, but I found it to be a touching inclusion.

     • II. The Temples of Syrinx
     • IV. Presentation
     • VII. Grand Finale

ENCORE

Lakeside Park****
Anthem****
What You're Doing
Working Man*****

*Clockwork Angels opened the Tulsa show, and The Anarchist was played second.  Thereafter, the two songs swapped places.

**Toronto 6/19 (with Ben Mink), Newark (with Jonathan Dinklage), New York (Dinklage), Vancouver (Mink), and Los Angeles (Dinklage) only.  Clockwork Angels / The Wreckers was skipped.

***Only played during shows featuring YYZ.

****abbreviated

*****with Garden Road teaser

This is a very good breakdown, but doesn't quite tell the full detailed story. There were three base sets lists that were alternated for most of the shows, Early on, it was A, B, C, then repeat in order, but starting with Toronto and the introduction of Losing It, the rotation got out of whack at various times. All in all, there were 7 different variations of sets, 3 of which were only played once and 1 of which was only played twice. Cygnus X-1.net appears to have them broken out nicely (as usual).

http://www.cygnus-x1...sh/setlists.php

My favorite of the three base sets was the B- set, which included The Wreckers, How It Is, Between the Wheels, and The Camera Eye.  

My favorite of the whole tour was the 2nd Toronto show, which combined the B- set (for the first set), and the C- set (for the 2nd set) - but with Losing It added and The Wreckers omitted.

Was Tulsa the only one that had Clockwork angels & Anarchist switched?

Yes.  It feels like they realized Anarchist made a better opener, so they swapped them.
