• May 2023 Update: Many apoligies for the extended period of inactivity, however many big changes for Rush Archives are now in progress. This should benefit everyone, and propel the site onward in the most realistic way possible. Thank you to those who have been supporting this project, and for being patient with the methods I've so far been operating. Further details will be coming soon.

This performance is from the short extension at the end of the AFTK tour, into the following month of May 1978 with the same setlist, after a month off the tour, to promote the release of the Archives compilation set of their first three albums. Therefore, this is also sometimes referred to as the Archives tour. This is the first performance during the "Archives" extension.

While this may not have been one of the band's best nights, this is a pretty good audience recording. The sound quality starts off a bit rough, but it quickly becomes much more balanced.
This is the second to last known recording of Lakeside Park until the R40 tour in 2015, the second to last known recording of Bastille Day played in its entirety, the second to last known recording of Fly By Night overall, and very last known recording of Cinderella Man.
