• 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.

The majority of The Spirit Of Radio is cut from the beginning of the show, with only about a minute captured in this recording.
The encore featuring the final few songs of the setlist are also missing from this recording, which would've been 2112: Overture / Temples, Grand Designs, and In The Mood.
There's a plausible chance the encore was not played during this show, but as far as I'm aware there aren't any confirmed instances of Rush not playing their setlist-based encores.
There are a couple of very short cuts during and immediately following Marathon, but otherwise this recording does not have anything else missing.
New World Man had been cut from the setlist towards the end of the tour, for all shows following April 22.
