• 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 is an interesting performance, particularly due to Lakeside Park being played after 2112 rather than preceding 2112 as it usually would.
The setlist here is fairly short due to Rush being an opening act during this performance.
This is an incredible audience recording, making it one of the best from this tour, which could almost be mistaken for a soundboard at times.


This seems to be the earliest recording in which Geddy uses the Moog Taurus Pedals on Lakeside Park. The Capitol Theater video from two weeks later clearly shows the Taurus unit and you can see Geddy using it to generate the synth sounds during the quiet parts of the song. Adding the Taurus rig was an important evolutionary step for Rush, and this great recording captures that moment nicely.
