Rush Clockwork Angels 2013 tourRush flies the Clockwork Angels airship into the PNC Arena in Raleigh, NC tonight for stop #5 on the tour. The band has been sticking to the same setlists that they performed on the 2012 leg, but have mixed in what seems to be a Night C set now, which they played for opening night as well as Wednesday in Nashville. This Night C setlist is identical to the Night A setlist with one song swapped out of the first set. If that pattern continues (C, A, B, C), tonight should see them playing the same Night A set that they played in Ft. Lauderdale last Friday. Just to be clear, the sets for all 4 shows so far were all already played on the 2012 leg - there's nothing new for 2013 yet; it's just that they now seem to be alternating 3 sets instead of just 2. I'll be sure to update this post with any unforeseen setlist changes as soon as I learn about them. The PNC Arena has a webcam (thanks analogtiger) set up inside the venue, and you can see the Rush roadcrew hard at work setting up the stage for the show tonight. For everybody going, have fun, be safe and make sure to share your photos, videos and reports with us. RUUSSSHHHH!!!!!
