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
