I think they could have left a picture of Ray Danniels in front of a pile of money on the screens during Intermission
Intermission setlist
Money by Pink Floyd
Money for Nothing by Dire Straits
and this..........................

If anything I also think they should have represented all albums on this tour...But I AM glad that they did some of what they did....

It's unfortunate but the CA tour is the reason why 80s Rush fans ended up getting short-changed for R40

Ghost of A Chance

Lock And Key
The Big Money
Afterimage
The Analog Kid or Chemistry
Subdivisions

Set 2:
Tom Sawyer
Red Barchetta or The Camera Eye
YYZ

Entre Nous or Natural Science
Jacob's Ladder
The Trees
Hemispheres Prelude, Apollo, & Armageddon

I know this would be a bit long but I can dream, can't I? I tried to get one from every album and to build off of their actual set. I also tried to squeeze in my favorites, although there's still a lot I left out.

How about this -


The Anarchist (A Set) / Carnies (B Set) / The Anarchist (C Set)
Headlong Flight
Far Cry
The Main Monkey Business
One Little Victory (A Set) / How It Is (B Set) / Driven (C Set)
Animate
Ghost of a Chance (A Set) / Show Don't Tell (B Set) / Ghost of a Chance (C Set)
Emotion Detector (A Set) / Lock and Key (B Set) / Kid Gloves (C Set)
Chemistry (A Set) / Countdown (B Set) / Chemistry (C Set)(Replaced by Losing It on nights played)
Subdivisions

Intermission

Tom Sawyer
Red Barchetta (A Set) / The Camera Eye (B Set) / Red Barchetta (C Set)
The Spirit of Radio

Jacob's Ladder

Xanadu
2112 Overture
2112 Temples of Syrinx
2112 Presentation
2112 Finale

Lakeside Park
Fly By Night
What YOu're Doing
Working Man / Garden Road


Anyways, I loved R40. I twas fantastic. This is just what it would be if I wrote the setlist. I would've filmed three shows. Both nights in Toronto, and logically either Buffalo or Kansas City since they were featured for audio on the CD with Wreckers and Camera Eye respectively


The First Night Filming could've been -

The Anarchist
Headlong Flight
Far Cry
The Main Monkey Business
One Little Victory
Animate
Ghost of a Chance
Emotion Detector
Chemistry
Subdivisions

Tom Sawyer
Red Barchetta
The Spirit of Radio
Natural Science
Jacob's Ladder
Hemispheres Prelude
Cygnus X-1 / The Story So Far
A Farewell to Kings
Xanadu
2112 Overture
2112 Temples of Syrinx
2112 Presentation
2112 Finale

Lakeside Park
Fly By Night
What You're Doing
Working Man / Garden Road

The Second Night -

Carnies
Headlong Flight
Far Cry
The Main Monkey Business
How It Is
Animate
Show Don't Tell
Lock and Key
Losing It
Subdivisions

Intermission

Tom Sawyer
The Camera Eye
The Spirit of Radio
Entre Nous
Jacob's Ladder
Hemispheres Prelude
Cygnus X-1 / The Story So Far
A Farewell to Kings
Xanadu
2112 Overture
2112 Temples of Syrinx
2112 Presentation
2112 Finale

Lakeside Park
Fly By Night
What YOu're Doing
Working Man / Garden Road

DVD Extras Would Be -

Driven
Kid Gloves
Countdown
Maybe a soundcheck version of Losing It
Losing It live in LA
Working Man live in LA
a short doc about the rehearsal process or something

Won't somebody PLEASE think of the keyboards? Those poor, neglected keyboards....

Just hop on a "time machine" to the CA tour. Plenty of synths to go around there!
I def got my synth fill on the CA tour

I do think that for the last tour, they should've rotated Between The Wheels with one PoW song and one HYF song and the VT slot going to a T4E song like Driven just to round out the catalog. I know that they played a ton of Power Windows on CA, but it was the last tour, so touching on everything would've been nice. oh well. Still the best show I've ever seen, and a stunning way to end their live career

Gosh Limelight!

I can believe it is 36 years old now. I am going to plug in my guitar to my effects board and little amp and try to relearn it !!!

Lovely arpeggios with chorus effect on guitar and great time signatures. Intro in 7/4 then 6/4 in the verse then 3/4 in the chorus then Neil plays 4/4 over Alex and Geddy playing 3/4 in the last chorus. Just wonderful. Really tricky guitar work!

As a guitar player I got a tip from a really good drummer friend of mine about playing in different meters. He said "don't try to count it otherwise you will f**k up, you just have to FEEL IT". Best advice I ever got about time signatures.

A set-list that have no songs from the 90's and 20's would have been perfect

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
  Animate
  Roll the Bones
  Distant Early Warning

  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
  Closer to the Heart
  Xanadu
  2112: I. Overture

  Anthem
  What You're Doing
  Working Man
  Garden Road (riff)

Goodness sakes that might've made me die of fandom.

I'd have missed CA and The Anarchist though, but you can't have it all. Cut To The Chase should've been played.

That's more like it,I would leave out Lakeside Park only because he had such a hard time singing it.

Maybe the first singing part, but definitley not the high notes in the second part.

Including one song from each album and no skipping. I was bummed out at the loading up on new songs and totally skipping over 4 albums.
Also play the guitars that were era specific so Geddy plays the Wal for the '85-91 songs and the Fender and Rick for the others. I thought his switching to a new bass every song was silly and distracting plus some of them were butt-ugly  :scared: :|

The new songs and Geddy's bass collection were highlights for me.
