Saw the Rush 30th Anniversary tour last night at [Product Placed Car Dealer] Amphitheatre, and it was amazing! They played almost 3 and a half hours, here's the setlist -
R30 Overture - (medley, with retrospective Jerry Stiller dream intro) consisting of : Finding My Way->Anthem->Bastille Day->A Passage To Bangkok->Cygnus X-1 (Prologue)->Hemispheres (Prelude)
The Spirit of Radio
Force Ten
Red Barchetta
Roll The Bones
The Trees (Daytripper ending)
The Seeker
One Little Victory (with dragon intro)
(-Intermission-/'That Darned Dragon' intro)
Tom Sawyer
Secret Touch
Between the Wheels
Mystic Rhythms
Red Sector A
Drum Solo
Resist (acoustic-Geddy and Alex)
Heart Full of Soul (acoustic-Geddy/Alex/Neil)
2112 (Overture/Temples of Syrinx/Grand Finale)
La Villa Strangiato (W/Lerxst rant)
ByTor & the Snow Dog->Xanadu
Working Man (reggae ending)
Summertime Blues
(Jerry Stiller outro movie)

There was actually one more song in the encore - but I can't remember what it was :(
The Jerry Stiller intro and outro were very funny - although a guy in the row in front of me was all "Look man! It's BEN STILLER" to his buddy. What a moron. The rant Alex (Lerxst) does during La Villa Strangiato was hilarious - and weird. He ended up talking about a goat going into the production office with receipts, and how did a goat get receipts? And were does he keep them? See, weird - I told you! It was a great show, and if anyone wants to buy me a present you can go here and buy me the Golf Shirt or the program. Just in case anyone out there felt like getting me something ;)
