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.
