And people will be dropping up to 227 bucks to see this???When you can pay way less than half of that to see a true progressive band with their original line-up for their entire 33 year career with more talent in the drummer's little finger than in MR.Collins-or all three for that fact-entire bodies!!!!!Boycott Genesis(or as I call them now The Phil Collins Band),and go see RUSH!!!!!

Fred pretty much captures my thoughts here. I lol'd at the No Band of Mine label the reviewer put on that song.

The new Rush record is really really good.

Add to that the disappointment that originally they were baiting us with a full fledged classic reunion with Steve and possibly even Peter... then it became "well it's the three piece but we will concentrate on the older prog" to"the same old same old- we'll give you a medley..."

We shall see.

yeah, I was hoping for a full fledged five piece reunion as well. I would have just about taken out a second mortgage on the house and journeyed far and and wide to see the band with Gabriel and Hackett. I would have been extremely excited about the band with Hackett as well, but this tour sounds just like what they were doing the last time I saw them in the eighties, which is all the hits and a few minutes of classic insturmental play to remind the once faithful of how truly great this band once was. I still remember the little Supper's Ready medley they did on the Invisible Brain tour. At one point the girl standing next to me turned and said, what the f&^% is this?? I just kinda stuck me face back in my beer at that point and sighed.

one other side note, Chester Thompson looks and sounds fantastic!
