UPDATE - 5/10@11:11PM: The 2nd set is about over and other than the one song swap for song #2, it was identical to Tulsa. We'll see what happens with the encore. Full setlist so far here.

UPDATE - 5/10@10:20PM: *** SPOILER UPDATE 4 *** They swapped out the 2nd song of set 2. Details below the fold.

UPDATE - 5/10@8:53PM: *** SPOILER UPDATE 1 *** Right off the bat - dropped opener from Tulsa and opened with the 2nd song instead. Details below the fold.

UPDATE - 5/10@8:02PM: It's about 7PM in Lincoln right now and the show should get going around 7:45-ish. I'll be updating the Lincoln setlist page LIVE as it happens, focusing on any changes (we DO expect them to swap out several songs) from opening night in Tulsa. I'll also post any setlist changes or anything else of significance in this thread just like I did for opening night. I'll basically post a regular update to the post (without spoilers) and highlight it as a SPOILER UPDATE, with you having to click through to the main article and scroll down below the fold to see the actual spoilers.

After an absolutely amazing and unforgettable opening in Tulsa Friday night, the R40 Live tour heads north to Lincoln, NE for show #2 tonight. It's expected that the band will change up the setlist a bit and swap out several songs, so I'll be attempting to post LIVE setlist/show spoilers as it happens to this thread much like I did for opening night (below the fold and with appropriate spoiler warnings). I'll only highlight any changes to set from opening night, or any other particularly interesting tidbits. If you are going to the show and are willing to help out by sending/texting me setlist/show updates please let me know! Here's a short preview article from the Omaha News-Herald. For everyone going tonight, have fun, be safe and be sure to share your reports, reviews, photos and video with us. And last but not least, HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY to all the Rush moms out there. Rush on!
