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 [amazon_link id=”B000W1TJ7W” target=”_blank” ]Moving Pictures[/amazon_link] album plus many other favorites. Here’s the set list from the show, to the best of my recollection
