Rush Clockwork Angels tour Dallas open thread
UPDATE - 12/7@10:01AM: Here's a review from Jam Magazine.
UPDATE - 11/29@3:03PM: Here's a review and photo gallery from Pegasus News.
UPDATE - 11/29@8:00AM: Here's a great review from The Dallas Morning News (thanks Jeff G).
UPDATE - 11/29@7:13AM: From the various reports that I can piece together, the band played a slightly extended A setlist where they played 1 extra Clockwork Angels song. They had been alternating 2 tracks from the album between their 2 setlists, but for last night's show they played both. They also played the track that they had swapped out of the B setlist in Phoenix Sunday night. Complete setlist here. Official photos from the show are posted at RushShowPhotos.com.
Tonight Dallas gets its turn to be caught in Rush's camera eye as they bring the Clockwork Angels tour to town to film the second of 2 back-to-back shows for a future live DVD release - Sunday's show in Phoenix was also filmed. Rush is due to play some version of their Night A setlist tonight, but it's very likely they'll switch things up a little due to the filming like they did in Phoenix on Sunday. As soon as I find out what version of the set was played along with any changes, I'll be sure to post it here. The Dallas Morning News posted a short article previewing the show this morning.
Rush: Lights, camera, prog rock. The group's American Airlines Center concert is being filmed for an upcoming DVD. Mario Tarradell says, "The current Rush tour in support of the superb new album Clockwork Angels, which I reviewed in July, is getting rave notices. I'm not surprised by that. I caught Rush in concert two years ago at Superpages.com Center - that was the tour where they played 1981′s landmarkMoving Picturesin its entirety - and they were awesome onstage. So I expect nothing less from these Canadian music legends."
To everybody going to the show tonight, have fun, stay safe, smile BIG for the cameras, make a lot of noise and be sure to share your reports, reviews, and photos with us. RUUSSSHHHH!!!!!
