Clockwork Angels tour set list

Rush played 25 songs, including two encores. In the first half, the band focused heavily on the 1980s and early 1990s, pulling songs from Signals (1982), Grace Under Pressure (1984), Power Windows (1985), and Roll the Bones (1991). In the second half, they focused on Clockwork Angels, playing nine of the 12 pieces. Additional pieces from the 1980s and early 1990s were thrown in for good measure.

The two biggest surprises are probably “Territories” and “Manhattan Project” from Power Windows. The others, with the obvious exception of the Clockwork Angels pieces, have pretty much been in the band’s rotation since the R30 tour.

For the encore, the band played two of its popular radio standards.

  1. where the hell is 7 cities of gold??????

    • Great piece. Maybe they’ll roll it out later in the tour. They’ve tweaked their play list in the past.

    • Actually, they ended up playing “Seven Cities of Gold” at the second show, in the D.C. area, Sept.9. They swapped out “Carnies” and put in “Seven Cities of Gold” in its place, so it looks like they’re going to rotate the songs.

  2. i could have done without Tom Sawyer to hear a newer track,,,but either way I am looking forward to the Holy Trinity in Charlotte

  3. 1st set sucked so bad that i wanted to leave,,but i kept saying it couldnt get worse. To my amazement all it did was get worse . I love Rush but damn all that crap in one sitting ,shame on you,,As far as i am concearned Rush owes me 200 bucks .
