Absolutely briiliant!. Been a fan since early 1980 (bought Permanent Waves on day of release together with Hemispheres).
This was my first Rush concert. The venue was superb, the sound was great, lighting spectacular.
Good point about the carpeted floor, think that does make a huge difference. The crowd were really into it, so much air drumming and air guitar that was an experience in itself to be part of. 3 hours less a 10 minute inttermission between sets. The guys seemed to be really enjoying themselves. I'm a part time drummer and to see Neal playing this stuff live was unbelievable, just stunning.
From the opening of Subdivisions through to the closing of 2112 I was in awe. The strings on the Clockwork Angels songs, Manhattan Project, Red Sector A and YYZ were really well done).
A 10/10 concert, almost 33 years since I first saw 2 of their videos on our local TV Music show... unbelievable, best concert experience of my life.

It must have been my seats but the first set was not nearly as strong as the second. I just could not get excited about much until Analog Kid. I just didn't feel the punch of Far Cry like on the S&A tour either.

The second set and encore totally made up for the first set though. I would love to hear all of CA played live especially BU2B. Tom Sawyer was also one of the best I have heard them play.

All in all it was a great show for my son's first concert and his 7th birthday. I hope there are many more shows we will get to share. Thanks boys for the memory of seeing my son lose his mind when YYZ was played....

Ahhhh, the boys were on fire last night in Vegas...Geddy's voice was on fire and needless to say that his Bass was thumping all night. Alex, as usual, was spot-on and his background vocals were clear, crisp, and loud...Neil was Neil, perfect on everything. The setlist was not my favorite but no songs were disappointing. Analog Kid was the highlight of the first set and you could feel the crowd hold it's collective breath before Alex blazed through a great solo. Set 2 brought Clockwork Angels which sounds even better live then it does out of the box. You could see that the boys enjoyed playing the new stuff and the crowd, overall, seemed willing to let themplay the whole thing. Neil smiled 3 times!! Personal record for me. Can't wait until next year when the boys come through Colorado! Good times!!

I for one hope they both make it on the DVD. They are both excellent songs, and they complete the concept of the CA story theme. I say put them in. When is it ever not a good thing to get one more rush song on a live concert DVD? NEVER! IMO.
