A Farewell to Rush

Usually Neil rejects the Limelight, and the whole band heads off the stage without a bow. Instead of milking applause, they show a short movie as they Exit... Stage Left. So, when this happens, it looks like A Farewell to Rush...

2112.net has all the details on the tour that is now history:

Digging deep for these setlists, “Losing It” and “How It Is” were performed for the first time ever, and while most of the songs from the first half of the show have been performed on relatively recent tours, many of those performed after the intermission have not been performed in decades: “Jacob’s Ladder” was last played in 1980; “Hemispheres: Prelude” in 1994; “Cygnus X-1: Part 3” in 1980 (“Prologue” was played in 2002); “Lakeside Park” in 1978; and “What You’re Doing” in 1977. Closing out the show is a teaser of “Garden Road”, an unreleased original song last performed on tour in 1974.

And don’t miss Neil’s tour book essay, “Live It All Again“:

A few years ago the band received a couple of lifetime-achievement-type awards, and in response to one of them I remarked – only half-jokingly – that it was our fans who deserved a lifetime achievement award. Because if we have hung in there, they surely have too.
