At least Rush is better in concert than the stones these days. I remember when I went to see the Imax movie they put out about the stones a couple of years ago and there was a guy in line who said he was a huge fan, but that these days every time he saw them in concert he wanted to sit farther and farther back from the stage.

Nirvana does not belong in that group, and I'm not even really a grunge fan.

I saw their last tour.  They played for 3 hours with only a short break when they brought out a string section to play some stuff from Clockwork Angels.  It was a great show.

Yup I'll be seeing them play this tour too. I would have seen them twice for the double tour they did recently but the second tour didn't make it's way back to California. I'll be willing to head out of state for this tour if for some reason a show doesn't end up happening nearby this time around.

Saw them on the Clockwork Angels tour and was mildly disappointed with the setlist choices. 4 songs from Power Windows? I have a soft spot in my heart for that album, but it was far from their finest moment. They virtually ignored their 70s output in favor of that from the mid-80s and later, and because they chose to play CA virtually in its entirety, lots of great older songs got the axe.

Here's hoping their next tour is alternating nights of "A Farewell to Kings" and "Hemispheres" in their entirety, mixed in with hardly-ever-played tracks from Permanent Waves (Jacob's Ladder! Natural Science!), 2112 and Fly By Night.

As a kid I was stunned to learn that the singer of Rush was, ostensibly, a man. I learned I COULD like them less!

My version of hell includes Getty Lee warbling 24/7.   I will give them props in regard to be an incredibly proficient group on their individual instruments.  Just never cared for the music they produced and Lee is like nails on a chalkboard to me.

At this rate, they'll still be touring in 2112.

....if they promise not to play anything after "Signals" I would go.

To be fair. I think "Grace Under Pressure" and "Power Windows" had decent compositions but both those records were utterly ruined by dreadful 80s production.

Every thing RUSH has done since 85 (their last 7 or 8 records) has sucked ass. period.
