UPDATE - 6/10@6:41PM: Rush played their Night B - version 5 setlist (thanks Kelly D and Iksi).

UPDATE - 6/10@4:14PM: The show is likely over by now but I haven't received any reports from anyone yet, although I'm assuming they played their Night B - version 3 setlist. If you were at the concert and can confirm this, please let us know.

Rush flies the Clockwork Angels tour airship over the Baltic Sea to the easternmost destination of the 2013 tour tonight where they'll play the Hartwall Arena in Helsinki, Finland for the final show of the European leg. They'll then fly back to North America for the summer leg of the tour which begins on June 21st in Hershey, PA. The band played a special, shortened set for the Sweden Rock Festival Saturday night, but before that in Berlin they played their Night A setlist. So I'm guessing that the Helsinki crowd will likely see one of the Night B sets. I'll post any setlist information as soon as I learn about it. For all of our Finnish friends who will be attending tonight's show, have fun, stay safe, and be sure to share your photos, videos and reports with us. Rush!!!!!
