UPDATE - 8/11@9:44AM: Reader CheeseCorn uploaded some great front row videos from the show to YouTube including the Wish Them Well dance party, Paul Rudd directing the strings during YYZ, and the final song of the tour (including Geddy's closing comments).

UPDATE - 8/6@2:59PM: Here's a review from the St. Joseph News-Press.

UPDATE - 8/5@6:55PM: Official photos are now posted at

UPDATE - 8/5@11:28AM: Here's the final photo gallery of the Clockwork Angels tour from Thanks John!!

UPDATE - 8/5@10:10AM: The final setlist of the tour was the Night B - version 5 set. Here's a review from the Kansas City Star.

UPDATE - 8/5@12:11AM: Kelly D reports that actor Paul Rudd (of I Love You Man) came on stage during YYZ wearing one of the String Ensemble shirts and directed the string section.

UPDATE - 8/4@11:02PM: Through the first set it looks like Night B - version 5 (thanks Kelly D). And now that the tour is over and we don't have to worry about spoiling anything for anyone, Night B - version 5 means that they decided to play Limelight in place of Middletown Dreams (played on the regular B set) and played The Pass instead of Bravado (the normal Night A song in this slot). In the 2nd set they should be playing Wish Them Well and Dreamline (rather than the Night A songs of Seven Cities of Gold and Manhattan Project).

Rush Clockwork Angels 2013 tourThis is it. The journey that began back on September 7th of last year in Manchester, NH is about to end. After over 70 concerts in about just as many cities across North America and Europe over the past year, Rush will play the final show of their highly successful Clockwork Angels tour tonight at the Sprint Center in Kansas City. The band is due to play one of their Night B sets for the KC fans, and I'll post confirmation of this as soon as I learn about it. For everyone going to the final Clockwork Angels extravaganza tonight, have fun, be safe, and make sure to share your photos, videos and reports with us. A very BIG thanks to Rush, the road crew, SRO/Anthem and the Clockwork Angels String Ensemble for a truly amazing tour. Hopefully we won't have to wait too long to see them back out on the road again. RUUSSSHHHHH!!!!!!
