Jacob's Ladder since it's never been played live before. ;)

Jacob's Ladder was awesome. Xanadu was amazing. Roll the Bones was groovy (love the celebrity video.) Between the Wheels was fantastic. Everything else was great too.

What was the ONE song this tour that just made you go, "YES!!!!!" more than all the other ones?

For me, of course, it was Xanadu.  Ten-plus minutes of Xanadu.  Epicness to the extreme!

I took this at San Jose show.

I have to go with Losing it.  It was my favorite song off of Signals and I had quoted it often during that time of my life. I have to say if it were not for that song I would have a hard time choosing.

The only reason I didn't consider this song was because I didn't get to see it live in San Jose :rage:

Opening with The Anarchist was f***ing awesome.


This!!! I saw the Tulsa show, so the energy was completely different when they opened with Clockwork Angels instead of The Anarchist... And after the show that night, I thought about how much better it would be if they swapped the two and then two nights later boom... It happened!!

Such a kickass opener...

Best part of the show is hard, but Xanadu did it for me every time.

Best suprise I'd give the slight edge to Prelude with vocals over WYD.

Having avoided the setlists until my first show of the tour (Columbus), and although I'd heard rumors of a couple of songs being played, actually hearing Jacob's Ladder literally had me tearing up.  I think my 15-year-old cousin (who had never seen a live rock show before) looked over and probably thought I was weird for being moved to tears by some random song he'd never heard before.  Hemispheres Prelude was absolutely fantastic.  In my 3 shows, I never caught setlist C, which in a way was unfortunate because my three favorite RUSH songs are Natural Science, Jacob's Ladder, and Hemispheres (in no particular order), but after stopping and thinking about it, I realized it probably was good I didn't get C because my head probably would have exploded by getting all three favorites right in a row.

I never really paid too much attention to Jacob's Ladder before R40, but mein gott Jacob's Ladder live R40 was life-changingly EPIC.

U.K. Rush fan here, so I didn't see the tour, but I've listened to a few full concerts. As such, I'd have to say Jacob's Ladder, with honorable mentions to Xanadu, Hemispheres: Prelude, Cygnus X-1, Clockwork Angels and What You're Doing.

But as always, it's Rush, so it ALL rocked :)

How can I choose?  There were so many "best" songs for me.  I loved every moment of the show from the beginning to the end.

The most epic "HOLY SHIT it's really happening!!" moment ever was when Losing It was played the first time.

Cygnus X-1 with the drum solo for me was killer!

It has to come down to Xanadu vs. Jacob's Ladder for me. The doubleshot of Hemis and Cygnus was pretty cool as well.
