SPOILER ALERT!: rehearsal setlist

Thu, Apr 10, 2008@6:10AM | comments

UPDATE - 4/11@3:20PM: If anyone still doubts the rehearsal setlist (SPOILERS), go checkout the gallery page (SPOILER). There's a cellphone photo of tonight's setlist written on a piece of paper and attached to guitar pedals which was taken by a member of the stage crew and uploaded to Puerto Rican rock site Pulsorock. Thanks to yoninrush for the heads up. I guess we'll all know for certain in a few hours anyways though. :)

UPDATE - 4/11@10:35AM: Some of you are skeptical that Hemisferios was actually outside the Coliseo and could hear any of the rehearsal through the main doors. So to quell you skeptics he had taken a short little video that I posted online here (SPOILER). I also embedded the video below. There's a snippet of one song off of Snakes & Arrows that you can clearly hear, so if you don't want to know which one it is, don't watch the video. :)

Our resident spy down in San Juan, Puerto Rico - Hemisferios - managed to listen in to Rush rehearsing for the tour last night and has a setlist for us. Major spoilers ahead. To check out the setlist continue reading below the fold. Many, many thanks to Hemisferios for getting us this information.

For the first part of the setlist it looks like they've swapped Ghost of a Chance for Entre Nous and old favorites Red Barchetta and The Trees for Secret Touch and Circumstances. In the second part of the show they only removed Distant Early Warning and added 2112 Overture/Temples of Syrinx. Not much of a change at all from the last tour. However, the other rumor I'd heard lately is that they'd be rotating out songs to change up the setlist on a regular basis. So we may still see something like Marathon or Jacob's Ladder (2 songs they had been rehearsing at one point) yet.

Here's the entire rehearsal setlist:

Digital Man
Ghost Of A Chance
The Main Monkey Business
The Larger Bowl (video intro)
Red Barchetta
The Trees
Between The Wheels


Far Cry (video intro)
Workin' Them Angels
Armor and Sword
The Way The Wind Blows
Natural Science
Witch Hunt
Malignant Narcissism (drum solo)
The Spirit Of Radio
2112 (overture/the temples of syrinx)
Tom Sawyer (south park intro)


One Little Victory
A Passage To Bangkok
