UPDATE - 10/29@12:18AM: Rush played their standard B setlist tonight - the version 3 one that they had been playing since the St. Louis show rather than the slightly altered one they played in Boston last week. Here's the complete setlist from the show.

Rush Clockwork Angels 2012 tourTonight Rush brings the Clockwork Angels tour to the venue where they filmed their Time Machine live concert video back in April of 2011 - Quicken Loans Arena in beautiful Cleveland, OH. On the afternoon of that show a gathering was staged just a few blocks away from the venue in front of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame to protest Rush's continued exclusion from The Hall. No such protest is necessary today as earlier this month Rush was finally selected as a nominee for induction in 2013. The band is due to play some version of their Night B setlist, but it's unclear which one. After consistently switching back and forth between the same A and B sets since their Columbus show last month, they decided to mix things up for the last 2 shows. In Boston they made a small change to the B setlist, swapping out one of the Clockwork Angels tracks with another that has been a regular part of the A setlist. And in Buffalo Friday night they added a track to the A set that had not yet been played at all on the 2012 tour. So there's no telling whether we'll hear that same B setlist or some other version tonight. There is one particular song that would be a fitting add for a Cleveland crowd; we shall see. As always, if there are any deviations from this setlist I'll post them here as soon as I am able. For everyone going to the show - have fun, stay safe (and dry - it's a rainy day in Cleveland) and be sure to share your reports, reviews, and photos with us. Cleveland rocks with Rush tonight!!!

Great photos of the show. Bought my tickets in September but circumstances would not permit me to make it. I cried myself to sleep Sunday night. Heck, that may have been my last chance to see Rush live. Last saw them in the old Richfield Coliseum. Been rabid for Rush since Fly By Night was released. Hopefully there will be anotber tour.

jupeguyowensound: I count 4 songs. One Little Victory, Secret Touch, Ceiling Unlimited/Ghost Rider, Eartshine. Plus, they spread them out over the course of the show.

Five, sorry didn't do MY homework there. Thought they played Vapor Trail. Also alternated Ceiling Unlimited with Ghost Rider.

dicehill - The show I saw for the VT Tour was at the Molson Amph. in Toronto. They played 6 songs from VT. I would think that was alot from a new release. If you're going to be so matter of fact about everything get your facts right.

The review from Ultimate Classic Rock is great, I especially love the description of Neil's solo in Where's My Thing. The description states that it looks like Neil is "dicing vegetables with a samurai sword." I caught the show in St. Louis and this description is exactly correct. That solo stands very vividly in my mind because at the show I was totally in awe of Neil's superhuman movements. It was hard to believe anyone could perform so precisely. Any one who has seen the show already knows about this solo and anyone who has still to see the show are in for a fantastic treat.
