Hey Murf, you are right, I would have at least thought Halifax would have made the list. I mean they are in Boston, what's a few miles north!

What kills me is they snub us in Calgary and go to Edmonton. I am pretty sure they could still fill the 'Dome and still do Edmonton as well.

Any one listen to the internet radio station RUSH radio? All they play are, well I think you can figure it out.

Nothing new since "Snakes and Arrows." Although I understand they are going to release it again in 5.1 format, if that counts.

A live cd of the 2007 tour will be released in April 2008. Looks like the DVD (filmed in Rotterdam) will follow later (Christmas 2008)? Sounds like a revised setlist for the 08 tour. I was going to make the trip down to Portland on June 1st however they are playing Vancouver on May 29th! Yahoo!
