Drove down from OKC and well worth it! Been seeing the boys since Hemispheres tour in '78 and they just keep getting better. Alex was on fire! Strings were tough to hear til The Garden but who wants to knit pick? Geds voice was strong and it's amazing they can still do what they do! What stamina! Do a random act of kindness and b
uy a complete stranger the CA CD! :-)

The only thing about last night that kind of irked me was that they unplugged the speakers in front of us and started running everyone out before the exit movie. I like watching those. Oh, well two more chances to see it.

Epic show!! Great setlist, and inclusion of so many CA songs + strings was brilliant move. High points for me included The Analog Kid, bravado, The Garden & The Spirit of Radio. Guess I'm too much of a Rush geek that I really didn't notice any problems at all. Phenominal show!!!

First RUSH concert in about 20 years for me, so I was amped up for the show. Initially I thought the sound was really solid, considering it was your basic run of the mill arena. I give all bands a break when they sound "off" in these venues b/c you can only control so much in these buildings. Enjoyed the mammoth, herculean drumming by Neil. To see him, at his age,still playing that well is hard to comprehend. Alex totally shredded it last night and re-confirmed my belief that he (the entire band really) is so under-rated. Geddy was awesome as usual, though he did struggle a bit on a few songs.

Awesome to see so many teenagers with their parents!

I could really nit-pick some more small things, but as a whole I was very glad I went.

Perhaps the biggest thing I took away from the show was that I have to buy "Clockwork Angels" ASAP. Holy crap, that album is a barn burner! It's as though the band has come full-circle with their music. So much energy and a heavier sound than much of their work between the mid 80's and 90's. I have always respected and appreciated EVERY album that they have released, but like alot of other fans, never really warmed up to the Power Windows, Signals, Presto, Hold your Fire, etc. works. I'm not sure why so many RUSH fanatics get pissed when people say this, but it's cool to say this about many Stones and Who albums???

Took my son to the Dallas show last night for his first rock concert. He's 15 and we both thought it was superior! A master craft performance by the most remarkable trio in rock. We were in awe of Alex's guitar work, thrilled by Neil's drum solos, and exilerated by Geddy's voice.
I was exhausted after the 3+ hour show - I don't know how they did it.
Thank you Rush for a fantastic evening.

Thanks for the review........the show in Phoenix a few days ago wa INCREDIBLE!!!!

The crowd was alive, the band was tight and energized and the live DVD release next year will be one for the ages.

I was really excited for the show knowing it was to be filmed. But Geddy was off, Alex was off and the feed for the guitar and keyboards were off. The guys, as much as they tried just could not sync up. Also it was hard to hear the strings. But as a true fan I was just glad to be there. The light show and vids were great as usual. Geddy told the crowd he hoped to see "y'all" again sometime. I sure hope so too.
