Rush Clockwork Angels 2012 tourRush takes the Clockwork Angels tour machine north to the Steel City of Pittsburgh to play the CONSOL Energy Center tonight. Reader Denny Crane sent in this photo of the Rush trucks and buses setting up outside the venue, so it looks like Rush has thankfully arrived in one piece! Assuming the band will be alternating between their A and B setlists from show to show, they will likely be playing their A setlist tonight. I'll be sure to post confirmation of this as I hear it to this thread, so stay tuned. For everyone going tonight, have fun, be safe and make sure to share your reports, reviews, and photos with us. Rush on!!!
