Yes I think they will add a "classic" into the middle of the keyboard-heavy 80's songs in the first set...why not Limelight, since they apparently had it ready as a 3rd encore song?

Just wondering with the 10 day break, if the guys would tinker at all with the setlist, drop songs, add tunes they haven't yet played? I love what they've chosen, albeit admittedly off the beaten path for all but hardcore Rushians. I'm definitely a child of the 80's and Signals was my first tour so very much looking forward to the show. Clockwork stuff is simply phenomenal concept and the music hearkens back to their roots, at least IMO. Headlong and BY-Tor very similar in many ways. Enjoy the show people!

Dear Annabale from Italy .Wow I have heard of other people traveling long distances to see Rush.I think that is very cool that your such a music fan and that The Rush is so good to your ears that you are traveling all the way here from Italy to see them in concert.Thanks for coming to America to see Rush hope your vacation is fun and that you enjoy your Rush concert !
When I saw that Ruush were going to Italy on The Snakes and Arrows tour that seemed like an interesting place to go see a Rush concert to me.Hope you have a great time!!I want to see Rush in New Zealand. Then ski a volcanoe of fresh powder .To sleep perhaps to dream.

No 38-usually 7.45-they did for the 4 shows I went to from UK-may do 8pm as latest but they have been pretty punctual since Manchester NH.Probably the most enjoyable tour for me-lots of POW stuff if you like that-switch between 2 sets nightly which is nice if you go to several shows. Alas I have to wait till May 2013 till they come to UK. The CA stuff works well with string ensemble and some older tracks benefit from the strings

enjoy how could you not?

Going to Philly show & was wondering what time the boys have been hitting the stage. Any info from past shows will help. Need to know when to leave Xfinity Live after a few little Victory Pints

My fiance got me tickets for my birthday. It is my 22nd show starting in 1981 and her second. Interesting set list. A little mellow, but nothing wrong with that. Should be interesting to see if they mention/mock their RRHOF nomination. See you all there!

2 KEY questions to be answered:

(1) Will there be any song additions that weren't played at all during the first part of the tour?

(2) What will Geddy do during the intermission now that fantasy baseball season is over?

If anyone gets VIP tickets, let us know what kind of seats you end up with.
#34 - Posted 10/01/2012 9:10 AM by athenmonk [contact]

I have a feeling I'll end up at Barnum Public House about probably around 5:30 6ish, unless I can find somewhere with a better beer menu.

sorry if the links in my post below do not work, but you can google places if you wish...
#32 - Posted 09/28/2012 9:23 AM by stephena [contact]

I have come up with three places that look promissing, but i have NO idea about any of them:
- Barnum Public House (link
- Brennan's Shebeen (link the BRIDGEPORT location
- The Metric (link

Barnum Public House is about .5 miles from the arena.
The Shebeen is about 2.7 miles from the arena.
The Metric is about .7 miles from the arena

Given my affinity for GREAT Irish Pubs my guess is i will START at The Shebeen for a Guinness or two then make my way to the Public House, and walk from there to the show.

Show is at 7:30 doors are probably at 6:30, that would put me at the Public house between 430 and 6, and shebeen 3 to 430 or so.

ANYONE?!?!? comments, questions, sound good, better ideas?

look forward to seeing you all

#28- Agreed! Anywhere for a good beer near the arena would be great.
