Rush Clockwork Angels 2012 tourRush takes the Clockwork Angels tour machine to the Motor City of Detroit tonight to play The Palace of Auburn Hills. It's expected that they'll be playing some version of their Night B setlist, although the way things have been going I wouldn't bet on it. So far they've been consistently alternating the songs of the first set between their A and B setlists each night, but have been slightly altering the 2nd set and/or encore. As soon as I am made aware of any deviations from the expected B setlist that was played in Indy (*SPOILERS*) last week, I'll be sure to post them here. For everyone going tonight - have fun, be safe and be sure to share your reports, reviews, and photos with us. Rush on!!

Show Number: 6

It's the "new thing" this season ! whine & snivel about the setlist, as long as you add (just my opinion) at the end...

Don't think your crazy at all but love Snakes. However, I do understand why people would not as well as T4E which I dig as well.

A lot of posts on this thread about the show in Detroit and less than half by my count by people who were there. I am glad that people like the 1st set, but I still think it lacked something. Grand Designs was nice to here again, but the other PoW songs have already been documented to video. Why not songs that haven't been ever been played live before? Contrary to what a lot of posters disagreeing with my view on the setlist have said, I only wanted to hear one '70s era song and two from the last ten years.

I really liked the 2nd set with all the CA songs since I think it is there best album since MP. I would have rather hear TMP with strings than Dreamline and I don't ever need to hear Red Sector A or Working Man live again. Why couldn't they play all these '80s songs during the Snakes and Arrows tour instead of way too many songs from what to me is one of their worst records ever? More Vapor Trails songs should have been played live during its tour than songs from S&A on its tour.

All of the above is my opinion so if you disagree that is fine, but to the one poster who thought I was crazy, you need to check your arrogance since you think you are always right.

When I see the Anarchist after CA and followed by the Carnies I will absolutely lose it. Should be getting tickies soon. Man never had to wait so long with lots of scratch up front.

Have fun tonight all that are so blessed to see them.

Clear to the East, clear to the West. So for today I cannot reference it as Blahvue. But all (in all) if I couldnt see 300 year old hemlocks & firs everywhere I turn, I would start to go schizoid'...

Just a workin a bit. CA is at the top for me as you all well know. How's everything in Belleeeevue?

Hey JinS whats happenin' at the canal ? I think CwA's easily rates right up there in the "2112" - "Fountain of Lamneth" territory..."Hemispheres" might take it on just a "concept" level, but the music is definitely as well thought out & executed. The only thing that takes away a point on the (Vapor Trails though Clockwork Angels) era, is the over-manipulation of the recording procedure. The "older" versus the "newer" and everything in between ? All good as good gets.

#117 Maybe they just need a few extra bowls of soup.
