Rush @ Prudential Center, 10/20/2012
Rush

The three appear to be having a blast, too. Rush can get away with burying the classic material because its fanbase is so rabid -- true Rush maniacs (and the arena was loaded with them) know the repertoire backward and forward and will lustily cheer anything in the catalog. The band, to their credit, does not take advantage of this. The three musicians continue to push themselves. On the Clockwork Angels Tour, Rush was accompanied by an eight-piece string section, complete with a conductor. There was nothing staid or fussy about the Clockwork Angels strings: these men and women rocked out as hard as the band did, and that includes the cellists, who were bobbing up and down in their seats to "YYZ." -[Star-Ledger]
Canadian hard rock greats and Hall of Fame nominees Rush played Prudential Center on Friday (10/20), their first of two NYC area dates, dipping into classics like "2112" in addition to material from their 19th LP, Clockwork Angels. The power trio had last night off, but will play Barclays Center in Brooklyn tonight (10/22, tickets). More photos from Friday's show, plus the setlist, are below.

Great pictures, would like to see more of Neal but it's hard to get pics when he's behind the set all night. :)

Posted by Steve | October 22, 2012 11:55 AM

Awful in every regard. Did we really need more pictures of screwfaced Geddy Lee? I heard some new bands may have played in NYC last week...

Rush rocked 100,000x harder than bands 30 years younger than them! I wish I went last night, still not sure if I want to step foot in the Barclay's Center.

Can we talk about a band that ONLY tours for money, I swear Rush is in town every 4-6 months, give it a break guys stop taking advantage of your loyal fans

Posted by Anonymous | October 22, 2012 1:39 PM

People under 30 don't really seem to know who RUSH even is!! So it's no surprise the hostile comments affixed to this concert review.

@1:52 WTF are you talking about? People of all ages hate Rush.

I've never seen Rush incite so many hateful comments. Apparently lots of A-holes have the time to peruse websites like this and say nasty things. Anyway, it was an amazing show, and they're STILL an amazing band.

Posted by Anonymous | October 22, 2012 3:18 PM

i don't recognize much from that setlist, is that a lot of their later career stuff?

can one of you rush freaks add notation to the list indicating what album the songs are from?

cheers

if "hate" RUSH, you've probably never played an instrument in your life. if you had, you'd understand...you'd UNDERSTAND and appreciate that they're light years beyond like 90% of any rock band that's ever existed, talent wise. or do you "hate" them because some of their earlier lyrics took the ayn randian theme of individualism (which makes liberals shudder)? or do you "hate" them because you're young and ignorant? you see where i'm going...?

Posted by Anonymous | October 22, 2012 3:46 PM

^wtf are you going on about? I hate them because they favor technical proficiency over soul, have hilariously goofy lyrics, and a singer w/ the worst voice maybe ever.

Nothing says cool like 50+ year old men in Converse sneakers + steam punk stage props + Gibson/Fender signature Les Pauls/Jazz basses.

And I guess they're too busy "rocking" out "retiree" style to play synthesizers live anymore?


That merch table's a fucking joke.

@3:46. It's always nice to hear from the Morris County Young Republicans. I hate Rush because their lyrics are fucking terrible and Geddy Lee's voice is infuriating. Their live show is about as spontaneous as a production of Disney on Ice. Awful.

Posted by Anonymous | October 22, 2012 5:06 PM

the highlight of this show was hearing nearly all of Clockwork Angels live.
that means something.
not a legacy act.
and for those who hate them, fine, no problem. the are either loved or hated.
that's often the sign of something worth hearing. live, they are as good a band as they ever were or better. but not for everyone. neither are the dirty projectors....and the Decemberists such.

1:12 - you forgot to mention how the ride home on LIRR was. Bet that train was packed, what with all the Long Giland bros in attendance. Wait, lemme guess .... East Islip?

Rush is music for people who think that country music is just a bit too racy, that long for something just a bit whiter than Oingo Boingo.

Christ! are you haters serious. What kind of losers take time out of their busy ERRRR!!! (useless) day to criticize art that they themselves are entirely incapable of instrumentally. I.E. (musician wannabe's)

Go back to listening to country or rap. Those genres only penetrate the first layer of consciousness.

Clockwork Angels Concert = UNPARRALLED!!!!!
