Thank you yoyoch! Now for the details:

The light show was out of this world! Alex, Geddy and Neil were perfect all night and I don't care what anyone wants to say, Neil Peart IS God!! The only thing that wasn't enjoyable was that Rush's production didn't allow any kind of camera in the venue.

Here's the setlist.

01. Limelight
02. Digital Man
03. Ghost Of A Chance
04. Mission
05. Freewill
06. The Main Monkey Business
07. The Larger Bowl (video intro)
08. Red Barchetta
09. The Trees
10. Between The Wheels
11. Dreamline

Intermission

12. Far Cry (video intro)
13. Workin' Them Angels
14. Armor and Sword
15. Spindrift
16. The Way The Wind Blows
17. Subdivisions
18. Natural Science
19. Witch Hunt
20. Malignant Narcissism (drum solo)
21. Hope
22. The Spirit Of Radio
23. 2112 (overture/the temples of syrinx)
24. Tom Sawyer (south park intro)

Encore:

25. One Little Victory
26. A Passage To Bangkok
27. YYZ

It's nothing against Canada.  There was a thread on DTF that same day about Rush and some guy responded with "Who?" just to be an idiot.  I responded with what Dimitrius just said, also to be an idiot.  Then I came here and found this thread, so apparently we thought it was too good of an opportunity to pass up.

Well...all I know is that my weirdest roommate came from whatever Canada is, so maybe I'm not such a huge fan after all.

It's funny because I've heard about a million lectures about unfair assumptions and stereotypes that Canada and Canadians suffer from, BUT IT'S ALL TRUE ANYWAY.

Boy, I'm kinda grouchy, today.  Weird.  I don't feel angry.

They were about 9,000-10,000 fans Friday night and I didn't see a single soul with a DT shirt, but that's because almost everybody had a Rush shirt.

@ Jen: You didn't get to see 2112, Red Barchetta or The Trees! So Tongue

awesome 
since there's usually lots of rush t-shirts @ dt shows, I thought it might be the same vice versa, but I guess, rush just waaaay overrules dt on their own territory

*Ahem* it's eh , thank you very much. I'm pretty sure Fonzy didn't come from Canada  Tongue

But seriously, what I've noticed is that Canadian's don't say "eh" (or at least not that much) UNLESS they are around foreign people, especially Americans. Not sure whether it is a subconcious thing or whether it's just us making some sort of satire to prove how readily some people (not just americans) are to jump down your throat without taking into account their own sterotype's, I'm not sure, but no, we are normal people, and we don't live in igloos.

Also according to my roommate, in Canada the weather's better, fast food tastes better, breakfast cereal tastes better, nobody is ever late for anything, and there are no rude people.   Clearly only idiots live somewhere other than Canada.  I wouldn't be surprised if he thought Canada single-handedly defeated Hitler and won World War II while the rest of the Allies sat around twiddling their thumbs.

It's a good thing I don't base all my opinions about Canadians on him.   Cheesy

Basically everywhere outside of America (especially Europe) have a higher standard for just about everything. Also, IMO, we tend to be internationally looked down upon nowadays.

A perfect example of that is "America" by Pain of Salvation.

Also, WTF is up with throwing out that song?  I mean, I don't disagree with you, but one song that one guy wrote doesn't really support your argument.

Well, I know we all all joking anyway, but Canada does have some serious perks (as a lot of nations do, including the US). As far as your roommate goes, no, don't only base your opinion off him  I have met some Canadians that I would be ashamed to go to another country!

And for the stuff he says, its almost all untrue as far as I can concern, EXCEPT for two of them: 1) nice people 2) world war I

Basically, in world war I, Canada was still "obligated" as a dominion under Britain, so they were demoted to a lot of the "bitch work" and had to do a lot of the really harsh battles in the war. We actually had a lot of people die and sacrifice their lives for that reason. Anyway, I won't get into it, I'm just saying. Also, although we played our part, other nations worked and died for their country too, so saying any death was undeserving is very wrong for whoever says it.

And seriously, in Canada, we have A LOT of nice people. I'm from the maritimes (the east of Canada basically), and we are infamous for our generosity and "niceness". The rest of Canada are nice too, but I love living here because there are a lot of nice people. No, not everyone is nice, and a lot of people can give others a hard time -- there are assholes everywhere. But, in general, people do really nice things and its a good atmosphere.

But as far as I know, our cereals, often imported from american companies, taste the same!

I did not know that.

*strokes chin that he just now realizes he forgot to shave*

I didn't mean to imply that Canada didn't do their share in the war effort or that a lot of Canadians didn't give their lives to defend freedom.  I think you knew that, but I figured it wouldn't hurt to clarify just in case. 

And seriously, in Canada, we have A LOT of nice people. I'm from the maritimes (the east of Canada basically), and we are infamous for our generosity and "niceness". The rest of Canada are nice too, but I love living here because there are a lot of nice people. No, not everyone is nice, and a lot of people can give others a hard time -- there are assholes everywhere. But, in general, people do really nice things and its a good atmosphere.

Well, my roommate's effects are definitely counteracted by the existence of Rush and James LaBrie and a few other cool Canadians that I can't think of right now.   Tongue

It's just annoying because this guy is a huge whiner, and every time he complains about something, he'll make up a reason why it was better in Canada.  If a TV show is on too early, it's not because he's in a different time zone, it's because Canada's TV schedule is better.  If he has to wait in line at a fast food place, it's not because he went during lunch rush, it's because Canada's fast food service is better.  If a girl turns him down when he asks her out, it's not because he's an annoying person, it's because Canada's women are better.  While there may be a bit of truth to the stuff he says, he blows everything so out of proportion, that after a while it gets kind of insulting.  Helloooo...non-Canadian here.  You're kind of pissing me off by saying that everything in my country is trash compared to everything in yours.

I mean, nationalism is good.  It's good to have some kind of emotional connection with your homeland.  But...you know...some people apparently go overboard.

That turned out to be quite a lengthy rant.
