UPDATE - 6/30@10:03PM: Here's a photo gallery from the Chicago Tribune (thanks Patrick).

UPDATE - 6/29@1:37PM: Official photos from last night have been posted at including several of the Stanley Cup appearance. John over at also posted this great gallery of photos. There's also this review from The Chicago Tribune (thanks MadRushian).

UPDATE - 6/29@10:15AM: Here's some even better footage (thanks yiddishrush worshipper).

UPDATE - 6/29@9:51AM: The setlist was Night B - version 5 and - as many folks had speculated - the Stanley Cup made an appearance along with a few Chicago Blackhawks players. Right before YYZ Geddy announced a special guest - Lord Stanley, and the gnomes brought out a road crate and produced a tiny Stanley Cup (like in the This is Spinal Tap movie) - then some some players led by Daniel Carcillo came out with the real cup (thanks hazlnut). The whole thing lasted about 2 minutes and you can see some grainy YouTube footage of it here (thanks The Mighty Dudad). There's also this meet and greet photo of Carcillo with Geddy, Alex and the Cup that Rush posted to Twitter.

UPDATE - 6/28@9:38PM: The setlist looks like it might be Night B - version 5 (thanks Kelly D).

#49- Hey most of the Kathy's I know are hot as hell! When I first read #49 I thought it said are you going to be at the "Lesbos" pre-show meeting and I thought, wow what have they got going on in Cinci.Then I re-read it and was disappointed.LOL. Hope all you maniacs have a blast at Riverbend. Wish I coulda met up with you all, but I can only swing the Hamilton show this leg which is coming up pretty darn fast too!

I dated a girl named Kathy, was mad about her in high school and think it is a great name. Man, I am so stoked for all of you going to the shows over the next few weeks. Rush N Roll!!!

#46 Rob - no doubt - Riverbend is going to rock. Glad i could help out with tickets. Are you able to make it to Lebos pre-show?

Anyone catch Mike & Mike this past Friday? Apparently, some Rush music was being played in honor of the #1 pick in the NBA (from Toronto - i don't follow NBA, so sorry don't know the name). Of course, my husband was telling me how they were also going back and forth about the name "Kathy" and how it's such a name from the 80's and 'no one names their kid 'Kathy' anymore' and "ugh, who in the world would date a girl named Kathy!" Yeah, funny ;)

Just saw the official pics on I remember reading a comment that stated it wasn't a big crowd... judging by the pictures I just looked at, even though the lawn seats might not have been available, it looked like the rest of the seats were filled up pretty well.

Hey, Hawks fans- I just posted to the gallery a photo of Alex kissing The Cup and one of his huge smile just after. What a night!!!

Have seats in the pavillion thanks to Kathy!
