Rush: Time Machine Tour 2010

I rode down to Fair Park this evening to see Rush on their Time Machine 2010 tour. Traffic was a bear, thanks to the state fair being on, but riding instead of driving was the better choice.

There was no opening act, and they took the stage at around 7:45 PM. They played two relatively full sets with an intermission between and then a two song encore. The band was in great form, really looking like they were having a lot of fun out there. This was one of the best concerts, and the best Rush concert, I’ve been to in some time. They played the entire Moving Pictures album plus many other favorites. Here’s the set list from the show, to the best of my recollection
