GeminiRising79 Posted March 4, 2015 Share Posted March 4, 2015 Not-buying-tickets-until-I-see-the-setlist crew, checking in. Are there a handful of songs played that would allow you to attend?...or Are there a handful of songs played that would not allow you to attend? Just trying to figure out your angle on waiting to know the setlist before you decide to see Rush perform live. I am well aware of GeminiRising79 'angle' in the past...just wondering if things have changed... Basically it comes down to the ratio of "great" songs to "bad" ones, and, the magnitude of how bad the bad songs are. By and large, songs played from 2000-on, imo, comprise dead spots in the show. If there are enough of these bombs peppered into the setlist, I'm out. Simple as that. Fair enough...It seems you're not into the newer (post 2000/last 15 yrs.) songs played either at home or live. Can't complain about that...you like what you like. I do think your window of opportunity to like, or at least allow yourself to enjoy a setlist, is closing fast. Sure, they'll play some older stuff, but with La Villa not cutting it for you, I'm not sure your desired ratio will even come close. So...The odds are you won't want to see them live and you don't really like too much of Rush's music over the past 15 years....and yet still you're here 'contributing' to a Rush Fan site. Bizarre....In my opinion. I'm hoping for a great finale from Rush which includes a playlist of mostly pre-'97 songs (or better yet, those of no later than '86). If they can't put something down for this tour that's greatly reflective of their glory era, then I can no longer carry the torch for them. They're a great band and have made an incredibly exciting and fabulous run from '74 to '86 (imo), it would be sinful to keep diluting out their setlists with bland, end-of-career monotony. 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
