UPDATE - 4/22@9:18PM: The interview is now over. It lasted a little over an hour and Alex touched on several subjects, answering many questions from fans (via phone and the chatroom) and from Rennie himself. On the subject of the upcoming tour, he didn't reveal much but did reiterate that the setlist will be comprehensive and that they dug deep for material. They'll be playing a good bit of older material that they haven't played in a while that will include a good cross-section of songs spanning their 40-year career. He also mentioned that since they covered a lot of the 80s material on the last tour, they won't focus on that as much for R40. Alex also confirmed that the band plans on filming a couple shows, as we expected, although he didn't mention which ones.

UPDATE - 4/22@8:10PM: The show has started and Alex was just introduced live in the studio!
