Rush 30/5/13 SECC Glasgow
31st May, 2013 at 6:20pm
 
Wow ! this has been quite a year for me & gigs !

Rush last night were, as you'd expect, just stunning !
Their stage presence, energy & musicianship just shine out !
Despite them playing in the acoustically challenged Hall 4 at the SECC - hanger would be a better description - they were just amazing.
The capacity crowd were positively buzzing !

There was no support band & Rush came on at 7.45 & finished up at about 11.00, with a single break after an hour .. cos they're a million years old !! (Geddy's words !!

Lets hope the next time they'll play the Hydro, which is a new venue specifically for concerts & should have great acoustics ! Seeing Peter Gabriel there in October !!

Here is the set list for the gig :
Set 1:
Subdivisions
The Big Money
Force Ten

Set 2: (with Clockwork Angels String Ensemble)

Headlong Flight

Halo Effect

Wish Them Well
The Garden
Dreamline
Drum Solo

Cheers,

Jim

They sure are brilliant live !!

I've already got the special edition of Moving Pictures in 5.1 format, which is a great listen ... now 2112 is available in the same format .. gotta get me a copy of that too !!

Actually, talking about 5.1 audio, Steven Wilson has being remixing loads of the classics .. which I must put on my shopping list !!
ELP - ELP
ELP - Trilogy
ELP - Tarkus
King Crimson - In the Court of the Crimson King

I've just bought Hawkwind's Warrior on the Edge of Time ... but not had a chance to listen to it yet !!
