It took me twenty years of fandom, but I’ve finally seen Rush play live

Big thanks to my brother Jon and his ladyfriend Jocelyn for giving my wife and I the opportunity to check out Rush last night at the Air Canada Centre! Despite my misgivings about bringing an actual woman to such a nerdy, boy-heavy rock show, we had a terrific time, and I was able to cross a number of items of my lifelong list of things to do.

I mean, check out the set list. Sure, they leaned on the new album pretty heavily in the second half, but haven’t they earned the right? Especially if they do it with a string section that meshes effortlessly with their time-honoured performance?
