In my short time of being a Rush fan, you'd be surprised how many imaginary concert setlists I've amassed between my ears in that time period....Yep, this is going to be yet another setlist thread by me, but I honestly think that this one in particular is perfect because not only does it give me what I want, I truly tried to appeal to every type of fan with it, whether they're prog era fans or synth era fans like me or whatever.

8. The Rhythm Method (drum solo)
9. The Trees
10. Natural Science
11. Jacob's Ladder
12. Freewill
13. The Spirit Of Radio

(Slightly longer than usual break so the band can recharge their batteries)

14. Tom Sawyer
15. YYZ
16. Witch Hunt (Part III of Fear)
17. Subdivisions

They did a perfect set list on the R40 Tour. The only song that was missing was Secret Touch and a few songs from Test For Echo album

They should have represented every album.
Beginning with 3 songs of CA was not needed at every show after playing the entire album the tour before.
I would have preferred 1 song, 2 at the most from CA
If this was a career retrospective, every album should have been represented, Yes even T4E...although what song is difficult to say
My slightly modified setlist for every city, and Losing It should have been played every show, dont care if violin was taped
EVERYONE wanted to see that

Set One
  Headlong Flight
  Far Cry
  The Main Monkey Business
  One Little Victory
  How It Is
  Test for Echo
  Cut To The Chase

  Distant Early Warning
  Between the Wheels
  Losing It
  Subdivisions

Intermission

Set Two
  Tom Sawyer
  Red Barchetta
  YYZ
  The Spirit of Radio
  Natural Science
  Jacob's Ladder
  Circumstances
  Cygnus X-1 Book Two: Hemispheres - Prelude
  Cygnus X-1: Book One: The Voyage - Prologue
  The Story So Far (Drum Solo)
  Cygnus X-1: Book One: The Voyage - Part 3

Just hop on a "time machine" to the CA tour. Plenty of synths to go around there!

The only real changes I would make are having a HYF and T4E song (Prime Mover or Turn the Page, Driven).  

Cut to the Chase is a must to at least alternate with Animate.  

NO One Little Victoreeeeeeeee.  How It Is was cool, but I wanted Vapor Trail.

I agree that 3 songs from CA was overkill. They did need something from TFE. Either the title track, Driven or Resist would have been good choices.

I Wanted Earthshine and nothing else from VT. Not OLV And certainly not How It Fuckkn Is.

At least one damn T4E song would have been nice and of course CTTC. Second set was perfect!!!

If they knew that it would be their last major tour (or even if they suspected it would be), they should have represented every album.  I agree that a present to past approach was best, but the whole stage changing thing was a little distracting.  They should have changed the stage twice, once at intermission and once for the encore (just add the disco ball and the high school gym backdrop).

I think it would've been nice to have one song from each album as a base for the whole set and then expand upon that. I loved the entire concert, but there's a lot of songs from between Signals and Vapor Trails they could have played that they didn't.
