My tickets are for July 20 in Seattle.

I pre-ordered the MVI version of S&A, the release date of which was delayed twice. Having made that commitment, I've been unwilling to ALSO pick up the CD version. So, I'm still waiting impatiently for the new tunes.

I don't really care what's on the setlist. It consists of what the band wants to play, so I'll just sit back and enjoy it. Should be a great show.

But, yeah, finishing with YYZ sounds just fine to me.

Tom,
You better "Rush out" (pardon the pun) and get that S&A cd! Once you hear it, you will wonder why you waited so long.
I am kicking myself for not buying tickets to the Seattle show (which is sold out). Now I am looking at the Las Vegas show on July 28th.

Me too!

Me too! But now the release date is after my local Rush concert, so I grudgingly made the trip to Best Buy and got a copy of the CD.

Interesting the effect that a producer can have on a band. Anybody else remember when Rupert Hine produced Presto? He had worked with the Fixx, and there was one song on Presto (can't recall for sure, War Paint maybe?) that starts with a bass melody straight out of the Fixx catalog.

So now Rush is working with a guy that has produced the Foo Fighters (one of favorite bands), and I'm listening to The Main Monkey Business. I swear, from 2:30 to 2:50 or so, they sound just like the Foo Fighters.

Not complainin' - just observin'. The instrumentals on this album are awesome. The rest of the album is very good as well.

Maybe Dave Grohl will pop onstage at Nissan Pavilion with our beloved trio. It's only a few miles drive for him, after all. Can you imagine Geddy and Alex playing with Dave on drums?

Wouldn't be as good as Neil on drums.

Maybe - maybe not. It's all good, just different!

Like that time I had sex with Cindy Crawford, then later I hooked up with Traci Lords. Everybody thought that no one could hold a candle to Traci, but you can't declare a winner in things like that. But I've said too much already, If I give away all the good bits, then who'll buy the booK?!

I don't know if Dave's memory is as good as Neil's to remember all those drum fills? I think that Rush's music would probably be a little too complicated for most rock drummers out there. That's why Neil is referred to as the "professor"

C'mon, JP! You honestly think we believe you can write a book? Pshaw. . .
