This band is the definition of one that only tours for money. They tour the US once or twice every year, playing the same setlist every night and virtually the same setlist from tour to tour. Not much difference between Rush and Dave Matthews.....

5:10, I can't comment as to whether or not Rush's hearts are truly in it or if this is just a job by now but they do not play the same set every tour. Far from it.

They not only switch things up pretty radically they will often heavy up on different eras. Look at the setlist online for this year's tour and compare it with the Time Machine tour and the Snakes and Arrows tour. Those are the last three major ones. There's maybe 25-30% overlap of their greatest hits. Everything else is different.

I'm personally abstaining from this because I hate their new album and the bulk of the setlist is playing the new album in its entirety. No thank you.

They keep the same setlist every night because they have videos/visuals to go along with every song. And considering every time they tour for a new album they play a ton of new songs live, bardly same setlist tour to tour. You're a fucking idiot.

Mmm I have heard about this band but they aren't a good one.

Comparing Rush to Dave Matthews is one of the more asinine things I've read on this blog.

Now this is some great news. Thank you!

To the dipshit first commenter, I wonder why you think bands go on tour if it isn't to make money.

Dad Rock. Boring.....

1:11 - Right. Nothing more boring than seeing the best drummer alive.

Hey 8:38, more like ASSinine.

5:10 - EVERY band tours for money. That's how they make a living, dumbass. Bad analogy, too (re: Dave Matthews). The only thing either band has in common is that they both have excellent drummers (although Neil Peart is just not human).

RUSH are incredible live. Alex Lifeson is one of the most underrated guitarists and Neil Peart is the best drummer alive today. They always put on a great show.

not a huge fan of Rush, but i really respect guys at this age still going out there and playing challenging music. if they can get paid, well, bully for them. i don't begrudge any fellow musician $ for their labors, though i wish more of us could get paid. Godspeed, guv'nors!

Posted by the_jim | February 20, 2013 11:31 AM

Agree with the rocker that said Lifeson is one of the most underrated guitarists. These guys have defined for many years (as many aging rock bands have) what rock and roll is. To the critics: Do you think you should not get paid to do YOUR job??

To the punk who said "Dad Rock-Boring" : Your generation of weak,glib acts is lucky if there around in five years. Maybe you need some history lessons...........

An excellent and unsurpassed band! Old boyfriend turned me onto them cruising around smokin' dope years ago. Still attend their shows hoping to see the old boyfriend just to thank him.

RUSH is awesome!!
Long live Rush!!

This is 3rd time I am seeing this tour-Prudential Center, Taj Majal Mark Vetesse Arena, and Jones Beach. Each one was more exciting to me than the previous one. I have seen just about every tour since Signals and I am just as excited nowadays to see a Rush concert as I was as a kid in junior high school. When they stop playing live, a part of me will truly die. Thank you Rush for the great music.
