Forgot....play Hemi:Prelude in its original key and segway into Cygnus right at the point where the vocals come in since Geddy can't sing it anymore. It sounded AWFUL in dropped tuning IMHO

I went, and attended to the "Rush R40 Tour" concert in Vancouver, and to describe by naming two words, I thought it was awesome, and amazing.  If I knew that it was going to be Rush's last tour before, and was to put together "Rush R40 Tour" setlist, I would have included songs from all nineteen of their compact disks, and albums, and not "Feedback".  I'm not including films before the start of sets one, two, the encore, and a closing.  I would've done it reverse chronological order from "Clockwork Angels" to "Rush" like how they did it, but with rotations of a few songs.  The songs I would've picked are:

Set One

Headlong Flight (with Drumbastica mini drum solo)
the Main Monkey Business
How It Is (1)
Sweet Miracle (2)
Driven (Bass showcase solo)
Animate (3)
Stick It Out (4)
Dreamline
Show Don't Tell
Mission
Marathon
Distant Early Warning (5)
Between the Wheels (6)
Kid Gloves (7)
Countdown (8)
Losing It (9)
Subdivisions

Set Two

Tom Sawyer
the Camera Eye
the Spirit of Radio
Natural Science
Jacob's Ladder
Cygnus X-1 Book Two: Hemispheres - I. Prelude
Cygnus X-1: Book One: the Voyage - I. Prologue
the Story So Far (Drum Solo)
Cygnus X-1: Book One: the Voyage - Parts II, and III
Closer to the Heart
Xanadu
2112: I. Overture
2112: II. the Temples of Syrinx
2112: IV. Presentation
2112: VII. Grand Finale

Encore

Bastille Day
Anthem
Working Man
Garden Road (riff)

That's a good setlist. Its years later and I'm still miffed about how they could do a farewell tour touching on all eras of their catalog yet deliberately skip over four albums including three in a row

Given the Lakeside Park footage from R40, the entire CoS album (and Hemispheres for that matter) would be brutal with Geddy's vox. However, dropped down a few, I would kill to see Lamneth at least

I've been wanting to say, thank you, Jnoble.  I picked some of the biggest hits, and concert favorites Rush fans, and who have been for a long time wanted to see, and hear in person.

Alex's excuse was that they played a ton of mid-late 80s material on the Clockwork Tour so they didn't need to revisit. Well, yes, yes they did! It was a 40th anny greatest hits our last tour ever...You're SUPPOSED to hit on all phases of your long career, not just cherry pick the ones you like the most :codger:

Not only was Alex right, they've been skipping many of the R40  tunes for years, some for decades. Can you imagine the frustration those fans have been feeling the last 25 years of their career?

Is there a pattern to the Tulsa 2015 setlist?

Like a lot of you, I wish every album had been represented. I would have done one or two songs from each of their nineteen albums (three from MP). I did like the going back in time idea, so I'd have done it like this:

Set 1

1. The Anarchist
2. Far Cry
3. Secret Touch
4. Test For Echo
5. Between Sun & Moon
6. Bravado
7. Show Don't Tell
8. Time Stand Still
9. Manhattan Project
10. Marathon
11. Distant Early Warning
12. Losing It

Break

Set 2

13. Subdivisions
14. Tom Sawyer
15. Limelight
16. YYZ
17. The Spirit of Radio
18. Freewill
19. La Villa Strangiato
20. Closer to the Heart
21. Xanadu
22. 2112 (Overture + Temples of Syrinx + Grand Finale)

Encore

23. Bastille Day
24. Anthem
25. Working Man/Garden Road

Thank you and good night!

I thought they did a phenomenal job with the set list on the tour. I might have switched out one or two songs but overall they really outdid themselves by pulling out many rarities like take for example Jacob’s Ladder (hadn’t been played live in over 35 years!) and Cygnus X-1 Book II (had not been played live for over 21 years). They represented almost 15 albums I think, and they only excluded certain ones like Power Windows because the majority of the album had been played live during the Clockwork Angels tour, and Test For Echo is a very emotional album for them, Neil especially, considering everything that happened to him after that tour.
