Rush does put on one helluva show.  I'd say they have one of the best 'Live Shows' around.

I enjoyed the two Rotterdam shows that were used for Snakes and Arrows Live immensely.

Snakes and Arrows was a great tour. Complete with Bob & Doug McKenzie and the kids from South Park.

Mister Charlie told you so.

I saw Rush in 92...  Primus opened for them, it was awesome...  I also saw them in 90 and thought that was very good... 

I didn't see them again until Snakes a few years ago...  I have to admit, I liked old Rush better...

Oh! That! No, no, no, you're not ready to step into The Court of the Crimson King. At this stage in your training an album like that could turn you into an evil scientist.

Sweet.  When's the last time they played The Camera Eye live?
To answer my own question, 1983.

I was gonna say...I've been seeing them since '82 (2 nights at Radio City boyee!) and have never seen it.  Might have seen it in '83 but I doubt it....Moving Pictures is not my fave album by a longshot, but I might go.....If they played 2112 or Farewell to Kings complete, I'd jizz....

The Rush  documentary Rush: Beyond The Lighted Stage will be in theaters nationwide in June. Exact cities and dates to be announced later.

This exciting news comes on the heels of the worldwide film premiere at Tribeca Film Festival on April 24 as well as the recent announcement of a 40-city "Time Machine Tour" to kick off on June 29 in Albuquerque, NM. This tour will feature the entire Moving Pictures album in its entirety.
I've been coming to where I am from the get go
Find that I can groove with the beat when I let go
So put your worries on hold
Get up and groove with the rhythm in your soul

Holy shit, Rush playing Moving Pictures in its entirety?
I had no idea! :-o
I also was able to catch the S&A tour... I believe they opened with Witch Hunt, though we weren't inside yet (which upset me as I was not comfortable with the idea of missing that song)! :crazy:

Funny. Rush is a really divisive band in the music community. You either love 'em or you can't stand 'em. Being a Canadian and a drummer basically means I have to love 'em, but between you and me, I can't stand 'em. I say between you and me because, in Canada, Rush is enshrined in our constitution. Yeah, we have really strange constitutions up here, none of that second amendment rights bs. We have stuff like "whenever you hear Rush on the radio, you must cease all activity and commence headbanging and air drumming". Crazy eh!

Nah, I'm a Canadian drummer and I don't care for them much at all. I actually don't think Rush is too big where I live (Vanc Island), probably more of an east coast thing.

Even in Canada there's an East Coast-West Coast rivalry. So who killed Canadian Tupac?  :roll:

Well, the case is still unsolved, but it seems like retaliation resulted in the death of Canadian Biggie (John Candy).  Also still unsolved.

Not much of a Rush fan myself.  I can appreciate their talent as musicians but their music just doesn't appeal to me.
that's great. people are stupid.

My records are my media for music. They are to be played. Loud and as often as possible.
