I hope you had a good weekend. If you saw RUSH on Friday night, I know you did. So many surprises. What is better than a Neil Peart drum solo? Three Neil Peart solos thats what! The bold move on this night was making Clockwork Angels the muscular showpiece of the evening. But first, the very cool approach of the opening set loaded with deep cuts they had not played in years. Tracks like The Pass, The Big Money, and especially Grand Designs(see vid). Geddy Lee can still soar, Alex Lifeson can control the room, and Neil Peart a percussion beast with the biggest kit in Rock n Roll. The stage beautifully set with a brain specimen, victrola, an old flying machine, and the coolest working popcorn machine. Just perfect. RUSH refuses to ride quietly into the nostalgia sunset. The stage really came to life for the Clockwork Angels set. Fireworks, steam, pyro, fantastic fantasy videos on moving screens rocked the more than handful of new tracks. The music got more intense with a string section and Alex Lifeson launching every song with a crunchy riff. It was pure RUSH utopia for this hardcore fan and living proof that this band is one whose chops get better with time. Red Sector A, YYZ, The Spirit of Radio, Tom Sawyer, and parts 1, 2 , and 7 of 2112 wrapped the perfect Evening with RUSH.........Can't Stop Thinking Big!
