I am now complete...
I fufilled a lifelong (ok, only for the past 5 years or so) dream tonight by seeing Rush in concert.
It was amazing. Personally, I think they played too much of their new stuff (which was great by the way, but it's just not quite the same), but it didn't bother me.
They opened up with Limelight and Freewill, played a ton of new stuff for the next hour and a half, took a 20 minute break, came back, played some older "new" stuff, then started getting into stuff like Spirit of Radio and Tom Sawyer, and then had a mini encore which ended with YYZ.
I can now die peacefully.
Three songs I wanted to see that I didn't: Working Man, La Villa Strangiato, and 2112 Overture.
But I can wait for them to come back on a non-album tour for the best of them.
Only downside was it was hotter tthan balls out at smirnoff. Just insane how much we sweated.
