Title: If you are traveling to Toronto R40......
Post by: L3rxst on April 01, 2015, 00:19:37 am
Get your accommodations booked very soon. Do not wait for a last minute deal, 'cos its also Toronto Pride week and their film festival week when the boys (ahem) play their hometown dates. The hotels will be very very full! Please be aware of this.

Makes sense, 2 nights in the same venue so multiple takes available, plus if they're rotating the set ....more songs!

So, I completely convinced myself (and my wife) when the R40 dates were announced, that I definitely, definitely wouldn't be going to any shows this time across the pond.
This decision was made mainly on the basis that -
A: Been there, done that before on last 4 tours.
B: Did I really want to go all that way for a probable "Greatest Hits" tour?
C: Really couldn't be arsed? :-\

Anyway, not surprisingly, that has all changed after Saturday morning when I saw the set-list from the 1st night and subsequently last nights set too, OMG, what was I thinking??  :o.

So, flight booked, hotel sorted and ticket bought, printed and in hand (right next to Pete too), Toronto here I come!! 8)

Excellent show tonight. A refreshingly different style of set list to the past few tours and a reverse montage of their material. Looked like hard work for them to be honest, with Lifeson fluffing a few notes and chords here and there.
It should be noted that the end animation screen said R40+ ......................make of that what you will. I think it means Europe next year if they can. Looking forward to doing it all again on Friday. Great to see so many European flags out...... Union Jack, Finland and Holland to name but three.

Pleased to see it was a great night. Going by some of the comments I read from people who "experienced" it via Periscope it was an absolute disaster. Although how you can judge a show like that through PC speakers via a phone recording is beyond me...
