here's what I think may have made a better show. First and foremost, not skipping any albums. Two songs are included from each that can be mixed and matched for an A/B/C alternating setlist:

Clockwork Angels/Anarchist
Far Cry/Main Monkey
One Little Victory/How It Is
Test For Echo/Driven
Animate/Between Sun And Moon
RTB/Dreamline
Show Don't Tell/The Pass
Force Ten/Time Stand Still
Big Money/Marathon
Distant Early Warning/Red Sector A
Subdivisions/Analog Kid/Losing It
Tom Sawyer/YYZ

*Second half of show break*

Spirit/Jacobs Ladder
Hemisphere's Prelude (in normal key up until the vocal part then segway into Cygnus X-1)
Xanadu
2112 overture
Bastille Day/Lakeside Park
Anthem/By-Tor (abbreviated)
What You're Doing
Working Man


Also, Geddy would only use his Fender Jazz basses and later on the '70s material, his Rickenbacker. No switching to one increasingly ugly bass after another every song.

I'll say.  :eyeroll:

Next time, they'll be sure to run their set-list by you for changes.  ;)

Forcing Ged to use nothing but the Jazz and the Rick for the older stuff!? :no:

I say let the man play whatever he wants (except the f***ing Wal...I'm glad he didn't bring that out). R40 was a total gear porn tour for all three of them with that giant array of Les Pauls and a few nuggets like that 12 string PRS for How It Is, that circus of cool looking and sounding basses, and 2 freaking drum kits! :drool:

Only 13 extra songs to rehearse, program, design lighting and create new video for. Easy.

oh yes, I'm clearly the ONLY ONE ever on TRF who was disappointed they skipped over everything between '85 and '91.... :sarcastic:

Only 8 for the 4 albums skipped. And of those 8, only 4 played on any given night. Big f'in deal :eyeroll:
