Rush Clockwork Angels 2012 tourRush's Clockwork Angels tour continues to stay one step ahead of Hurricane Sandy as they head south to Charlotte, NC tonight just out of the storm's reach. The band is due to play some version of their Night A setlist, but it's unclear which one. Much to everyone's surprise in Buffalo Friday night they swapped in a track to the A set that had not yet been played at all on the 2012 tour. So it's not clear whether we'll hear that same A set, or the one they played in Brooklyn last week (or something else!). As soon as I find out which set was played, I'll be sure to post it here. According to a recent tweet from the WestSideBeemerBoyz Twitter feed, it looks like Neil and Michael braved the outer edges of the Frankenstorm and biked their way to Charlotte:

Backwoods Kentucky, the outer vortex of Frankenstorm - rain, wind, wet leaves, 42 degrees. What fools we mortals be...

Hopefully they, the rest of the band, and the crew all arrived in one piece! Our thoughts and prayers go out to everyone affected by the hurricane. For everyone going to tonight's show - have fun, be safe and make sure to share your reports, reviews, and photos with us.
