Rush | 2007 Tour Dates

by -

When I was in high school, I probably listened to the Rush live album, Exit…Stage Left, more than any of piece of music. Seriously.

I never really got a good chance to catch them live at the time and I eventually fell out of love with it. It was half-novelty for me because I wasn’t a fan of a lot of their songs — way too 80’s synth by the time I got around to hearing more of their catalog beyond “Freewill” and “Spirit of Radio” — but I was a huge fan of their drummer, Neal Peart. I was aspiring young drummer myself at the time and I was on a steady diet of Rush and The Police for a very long portion of my early musical growth…

Rush just keeps coming back, though. Whether or not that’s a good thing — well, let’s just wait for the real music critics to decide on that question. They’ve got a new album coming out — Snakes & Arrows – and they’re following it up with a massive world tour. Crazy Canadians.

    Have been a fan (though not huge) of Rush going back to Moving Pictures. Hadn't seen them live since about 1985 until two tours ago. My brother-in-law is a huge Rush fan and got me to go along without much prodding. The format for their tours now is no opening band and they play two sets lasting 2 1/2 to 3 hours. They tend to play at least one song from every album, so no matter when you were a fan you'll hear something that you know. They still have a big rock show with videos, lasers, flashpots, and last time, three working tumble dryers on stage for no apparent reason. Hey, if you're going to spend three hours on stage, you might as well get some laundry done! But they all still incredible musicians and the show was great. Set list doesn't change much night to night, if at all and there isn't a lot of jamming, though they do travel from the studio versions occassionally. Overall, a great rock show from extremely talented musicians.
