The band swapped out one song for each of the four sections of the show. For the first part, in which it focused heavily on Power Windows and other albums from the 1980s, it switched “Middletown Dreams” for “The Body Electric.” For the Clockwork Angels portion, it switched “Seven CIties of Gold” for “Carnies.” For the post-Clockwork Angels portion, it played “Dreamline” in place of “Manhattan Project,” and for the encore it played the first, second, and last parts of “2112” for “The Spirit of Radio.”

The weather in the D.C. area was great, the crowd was near capacity, and the band sounded great. A couple of photos are below.—Rob Freedman, Rush Vault

  1. Some people enjoyed this show more than others. For me, it was great hearing the ’80s stuff. Had never heard “Territories” live before – that was a treat. The musicianship and staging were excellent – I recommend this show to any Rush fan.
