I remember EagleMoon thought my comment stating you sound like an "elk calling his bitch" low class. I knew you'd get it.

Yepper!  I long for the smell of acorns and tarsal glands!  Just a few more months.  Bow season here opens in late September and then heading to Idaho for muley's in October.  
Just leave me alone from September to February!

I was at the Newark show and felt it was just amazing, crowd and band on fire and fueling each each other. This was a Rush tour for the ages and everyone probably thinks shows they were at are 'the best'. All 34 were no doubt fantastic..no need to split hairs over levels of concert perfection.

I thought the Newark crowd left a bit to be desired. The closest lower bowl section to the stage on Alex's side sat down through much of the show.

From my vantage point, they seemed to really step up to another level for the 2nd Toronto show in comparison to the 4 shows I had seen up to that point. I wasn't at the Montreal and Boston shows, but I'm told they kept it up there for both, and Philly was next in line, and I felt like the Philly show was even a little better than Toronto II. I will admit I have difficulty being objective though - Philly is my hometown venue, and I was front row right in front of Geddy for that show. Philly was also one of the toughest tickets to find of the entire tour. I was extremely proud of how we represented ourselves, and love the fact that johnnyonthespot (a non-Philadelphian) singled out this show as the "most electric" audience. We get a lot of bad raps from a lot of outsiders, but many bands over the years (Rush included!) have enjoyed feeding off of the unsurpassed enthusiasm we bring to a concert.

Taking the audience electricity out of the equation, I think Toronto II, Philly, and LA were the best performances of the dozen shows I saw.

As far as live, can only comment on Tulsa, Bristow, Philly, and Denver. The Denver show was probably the best I've seen them (since '79). If you're talking the crowd, Philly was the least favorite, very subdued crowd in the first 15 rows. Don't know why, but was surprised since it sold out so fast. I'm not throwing stones, just what I observed.

It would be interesting to go song by song for each show and pick out which ones were the best.  Not that I have that kind of patience, but maybe someone does.  :)

Clearly, you fail to understand the underlying premise of TRF. ;)

We also split hairs about which Geddy could beat up which Geddy, the size of Alex's bald spot and the amount of contempt in which Neil hold the fans and by extension humanity.

Boston was the best that I've seen them ... ever (24 shows over 14 tours)

To me, the second Toronto show was pivotal- I saw them in Bristow to end leg 1- and they were still "rehearsing."  But that night in Canada-everything came together and from then on- the  RUSH caravan thundered onward to LA.  Chicago, Philly, LA stand out to my ears and eyes.
