Venue: Bridgestone Arena
Audience Recording

Bootleg: Harpooned Walrus

Press Note:
"Although the group has rarely (until quite recently) received any critical accolades outside of instrumental magazines, and in fact has been much lampooned by mainstream critics across the decades, the music of Rush actually holds up far better over time than that of most of its contemporaries. Sunday evening's performance was very well-paced and allowed the band members to do what they do best, which is play very difficult music extremely well. Vocalist/bassist Geddy Lee, drummer/lyricist Neil Peart and guitarist Alex Lifeson demonstrated over and over again why their die-hard fans have given them such devotion over such a long period of time. The band's strength lies in the very thing that many critics probably see as its greatest weakness, which is its complete unwillingness - or inability - to change and follow trends. That's not to say that Rush hasn't incorporated various contemporary influences here and there, but always in such an unmistakable way that there's no doubt, no matter what era of the band's long career, that what you're hearing could only possibly be Rush".
