Rush's 30th Anniversary Tour

Rock group Rush came to our area on July 3rd. It was a very enjoyable show. The reviewer in the link above pretty much nailed my impressions of the show (mostly great, some coulda shouldas). WARNING: For those who want to be surprised when they go see Rush, beware the set list at the end of the article.

"Jacob's Ladder" is still my favorite Rush song. I'd pay real money to see them perform it live, though I wouldn't bet on it.

Actually, what I'd REALLY like is for the Awesome-Three to record another long, conceptual tune a la "Jacob's Ladder", "Natural Science", "The Trees", or "By-Tor and the Snow Dog". To paraphrase someone in a thread on Fark, "I doubt they have the balls anymore to do anything like that. They're trying too hard to be acceptable to please the record company fatmen and consumerist society".

I'm still looking for a copy of "Feedback".

That would rock. It would also force them to take all their newfound prowess and work it into a longer theme.

Funny you should mention the Fark comment. I think it is probably true. Neil Peart wrote about how fast he was going through the money when he was out riding his BMW, esp. after the tragedies in his life (motels and restaurants add up fast, esp. if you order booze). On the other hand, they are having fun and still playing great music so there is that. It only cost $33 to go see them which is pretty cheap by today's standards.

I can't believe I didn't go....

Why didn't you make me go, Don? I'm holding you responsible!
