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).

Will the Stanley Cup be making an appearance tonight?

Alright windy city! Rush on tonight and have a blast. Oh the wind can carry.

#2 - We can hope, but I think odds are better than 50-50 that Geddy will don some Hawks gear tonight.

I'm going to say that it's a strong possibility that Lord Stanley will be in attendance tonight. I've not heard any rumors or anything, but there was a reason that 5 Hawks were on stage at the Chicago show last September...One can only hope!

At the end of the WGN coverage of this morning's Hawks victory rally, Dan Roan (WGN sportscaster) said he had a feeling that The Cup will be at the Rush show tonight. We shall see!!

I've heard that they said the same thing on The Score. How cool would that be?

Daniel Carcillo (LW for the Blackhawks), tweeted this yesterday @CarBombBoom13 (yes, strange handle but legit it is him).

Daniel Carcillo‏@CarBombBoom13
"I'm not going to lie, thoroughly enthused about catching #Rush at Tinley Park tomorrow evening. I may bring along a silver friend #boom"

Let's hope!

Can't wait for tonight. Sec 104 Row D

See you all tonight at the Show...I wager that the CUP will be there.

Can anyone recall any Rush tunes with Indians (Hawks) in them?

Let's hope the weather holds.

Funny to read that #9, I just got back from lunch outside in the loop and I was thinking "I see red..." with all the people downtown for the rally. I saw the Cup go by this morning but I don't think I'll see it again tonight. It would be a nice surprise though.
