Rush Clockwork Angels 2012 tourRush's Clockwork Angels tour marches northward to play the Target Center in Minneapolis tonight before heading on to the Great White North later this week. They are due to play their Night A setlist - the same that was played in Columbus (*SPOILERS*) last week. If there are any deviations from this setlist I'll be sure to post them here. Reader Marty From Clayton passed along this short blurb on the show from today's St. Paul Pioneer Press. He also wanted me to remind folks coming in to see the show from Wisconsin that the Stillwater Bridge is closed (a major Twin Cities crossing), and they'll have to enter Minnesota at the Hudson crossing. For everyone going to the show tonight - have fun, be safe and make sure to share your reports, reviews, and photos with us. Rush!!

**The video link below is from a Clockwork Angels concert**

LOOKS LIKE CRAP!! "Yes, but sometimes people love crap."

you've probably seen my awesome videos from the last two tours, well those days are over, or at least on hold for now, so here's one with a mix of great up close in focus moments mixed with the backs of people's heads and my camera trying to figure out what to focus on! My priority nowadays is enjoying the show, so i drank my butt off and had a blast (with my camera in my POCKET most of the night!).

I checked that one first, because I was on Ged's side, but can't pick us out there.

The one from directly behind Neil is where we are "clearly" visible.

CheeseCorn if you're talking about the photo from (the one with only Geddy in the pic) I can see myself too!! Red shirt on the right side a few rows up from the floor on rhe risers!! I saw that pic this morning and knew right away it was me.

First time saw (I didn't want to spoil my illusion..of one the dearest) "The Garden", lame front rows like usual (seats were waiting) and security guys staring maybe they really were looking for suspects out of the totems maybe ? ;). I think that Alex a bit too busy with playing his little piano/synth..its cute and nice but after that the solo is lacking the emotion as it should be imo, because he was still busy with that piano..?!

#47 - that is so cool when you can pick yourselves out of the crowd from an official photo of the show. Happy for ya. My brother and I would have been in one of the shots on the TM tour if chicken man wasn't in the way!

You know what I'm stoked about now?

Even though we were in the first row of the risers from the floor (Geddy's side) in line with row 21 on the floor, I can still pick out my son, his friend, and myself in the official photo taken from behind Neil.

Now to come up with the cash to get a poster size print of this shot! :)

My nine year old son opted to go to the Twins game .He joined us after the game and I picked him upfrom a relative at the box office during Red Sector A .It took them a while to show up and I would have bet my bottom dollar that I thought they were playing Limelight after Red sector A, but I guess I was mistaken .My bad .No limelight lots of Angels.Awesome impeccable playing .Neil Peart had me in awe all nite from the front center second row.Wow !Everything we expect from the Guys.The best performance they can give.To play as well and as accurate as possible.As Stated Clockwork Angels Material was played really strong.Neil said when he was recording it he wanted it to be the highest musical achievementof his career and not only the lyrics but the playing .He was right on the edge of his physical limits as a drummer.
As he has stated on his website when he viewed some of the high definition footage from Snakes and Arrows for the first time .That it did not seem fair .That it looked so easy.What They do is not easy .It just looks easy .They make it look easy.Neil said sometimes it is hard to keep under control -from letting it get away from you .Clockwork Angels material is going to Rock your face off .Neil absolutely goes to town on it .
