Took my oldest to see Rush last night– it was his first concert and a great show! Those guys still rock pretty hard, but they are getting old. Speaking of old, definitely a sign of the times– the older women at concerts are giving the younger ones competition now thanks to saline and silicone. Also saw a lot of kids at the show; there were fans of ages and everyone was having a great time.
Rush had a cool bit introducing Tom Sawyer– they had South Park doing the beginning and Cartman sang as Geddy Lee with a long brown wig, screwing up the lyrics by confusing Huck Finn’s story with Tom Sawyer. Here is a blurry pic that timothyj on flickr.com took from one of the first shows of the tour:
