So many great songs they played.  If I had to pick I'd say Jacob's Ladder since I'd never seen it played live before (first tour I saw was Grace).  Hemispheres prelude would be second for the same reason.  They didn't play Losing It in San Jose.  Would have loved to have seen that.

Xanadu. Although Roll The Bones was a hoot, and Losing It was a darned closed second. But Xanadu, which I view as the highest achievement of Rush's prog era and still one of the greatest songs they ever wrote and recorded. When that deep synth base note rattled Rogers Arena, it was like the venue became a Prog Cathedral, and in that moment I thought "I can now die happy."

That was amazing, for sure.

ETA:  Still bummed Alex and Geddy didn't change into kimonos during the drum solo.

What would be really funny is if they do a skit with the kimonos on for an extra on the DVD.

Jacob's Ladder for "never before" reasons, or Hemispheres Prelude for "Wow, better 21 years later" reasons. :)

Yes! No one gives the Taurus Pedals enough credit on that song!
