Rush Tour 2007 Thread
Hey there!
Just got back from the 3 hour - Sheffield set which was bloody awesome! I can only describe the gig as -Unbelieveable!-

I was in a trance the whole time from the pure talent and the extreme sound that just came from 3 members! They are the most sound efficient band I have heard in a long time, and it just shows, you don't need 5+ members to get a full sound!

As for stage presence, Geddy Lee was definatly a fun frontman to have. He did his best to invove the audience which I felt worked really well (I love his idea of having Chicken Oven instead of a bass amp!) but I thought Alex Lifeson was a bit static.

Last but definatly not least, The Professor! The drum solo was increadible, it was the equivelent of an around-the-world-in-8-minutes solo! He really showed his best abilties as a drummer! His beats were tight and damn impressive!

From this gig, it has showed me the modern music has no were near as much attention and technicality put into it! I am now sticking with vintage!
Forget Travis Barker, Forget Joey Jordison, Listen to Peart or Bonham!!!!!

Any other reviews on the tour?? Any chance of a part of the forum for gig reviews or is this the wrong place for that??

I saw them in glasgow last wednesday. Truley amazing show, the fact alone that they are old enough to be my grandparents and they still have so much energy on stage...its inspiring.

Not only was the sound great, but their video and lighting show was one of the best I have witnessed too.

I saw them on their second leg here in columbus- everything was amazing, they played so tight, and the lights and sound were unbelievable.

I saw the Red Rocks Amphitheater show in (actually near) Denver, CO. I hadn't picked up or heard Snakes and Arrows yet, in fact I still haven't. I was impressed with the show, loads of new stuff. Unfortunately, our tickets were in the 57th row and the wind was causing a lot of "phase shifting" of the sound. You could hear clearly for a few seconds, then the wind would shift and you would lose all of the highs.

The South Park intro to TS was a definite highlight.

Aw, man...

That sucks, EC! Guess that's what can happen when you go to a show at an outside/openside venue.

I was at the Test For Echo Tour show at Nissan Pavillion in Va., when about 1/2 way through the show, a thundershower came through and it poured down in sheets! I mean, it rained so hard and the wind was blowing so strong, that even the pavillion couldn't keep us dry. The rain was blowing in through the open sides.

Luckily, it was only, for about 10 or 15 minutes. Though, even G, A, & N were gettin' soaked. But it was a fantastic show none-the-less!

Yea...out there @ Red Rocks that wind can blow, I'm sure. Hope you can see' em again, when natures' fans are turned off...

Peace... ;-)

I saw Rush in Ottawa this September, and the show was absolutely amazing. The show was at the "Scotia Bank Place". The seats were too the sides and pretty high up, but the sound quality was great. There were flame jets that went up in the air on stage for effects, and at one point when they all went off I could actually feel the heat(and I was probably about 50 yards away). Neil Peart's drum solo was awesome! I would really like to see them again and get front row seats!

Re: Rush Tour 2007 Thread
Awesome....simply awesome. Seeing Neil and the guys in the flesh was a true experience in musicianship. I left in a daze and when I got home I wanted to go for another 3 hours of rocking out :)

I saw them in Tinley Park near Chicago. I'll have to say, I've seen Rush every single time they came to Chicago since 1980. Even if they played 2 shows I would be there for both shows. the show I seen on 9/8/07 the Snakes & arrows tour was the best Rush show I've ever seen! I sat in the 6th row , center of the stage! Neils bass drum was eye level about 25 ft away! It was truely breath taking! They played their hearts out! Neil Peart is a true victor! He's a real Champion! And my greatest hero of all time!

I saw them last night at the NEC... wow!

I saw them last time they came to the NEC and they blew me away (that was my 1st time seeing them).

The new stuff is fantastic live, especially Far Cry.

The visuals weren't as strong this time imo, the lights i liked though, and those cool spacechip things thathovered above the stage, very nice stuff.

My parents are going to see them at Manchester tomorrow tjhey didn't even ask if i wanted to go with them! typical! My Dad's seen em about 12 times now, God! does he really need to see them again?

Re: Rush Tour 2007 Thread
