Re: Neil Peart
Just went to see the Time Machine Tour 2011 last night in Louisville at the new KFC Yum! Center.
Show was outstanding, Rush played for over 3 hours to include the entire Moving Pictures album.
Neil solo was outstanding as always. They played a lot of lesser known songs.
Encore included La Villa Stangiato. Neil was great the whole night through. I love Rush's self-depricating humor. It's nice to see some highly successful musicians who are capable of making a joke out of themselves and who obviously have a lot of fun on stage performing together. They take their music serious, not themselves.
Interesting, the only time Neil's kit turned around to the electronic side was for a portion of his solo - they focused on Rush-through-Signals and then Roll the Bones through today songs - skipped the mid-80s electronica stuff.
Was surprised to see a lot of parents with their teenagers in there! Great way to expose kids to good music.
