  • This recording features an early live version of Subdivisions.


So this was my second Rush gig, and a great recording to listen to.....thanks to whoever recorded it.
I have three great memories from this show.
1. My mates and I were struggling to get to the Deeside arena, so in the end we ended up booking a taxi from Sheffield to Deeside (not cheap........)
When the taxi turned up, it was a stretch limousine, well you can imagine our reaction :D
When we arrived at Deeside, all the ticket touts and t-shirt sellers ran after the car to where we parked to sell their wares, as if we had a lot of money :ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO: how wrong they were............
2. Towards the end of the gig, my mate got hit on the head, and went temporally blind, I had to drag him to the back of the arena (we were right down at the front, near to Alex)
Having got him to the back of the arena (bearing in mind it was an ice rink) I had to pull my mate over the barrier.......he was twice the size of me so not easy :unsure:
3. When we returned to the taxi to return home, the taxi driver told us that he had had a wander around and got talking to the truck crew........and 3 other guys!!!!!.......yes it was Geddy, Alex and Neil, chilling out, pre gig 🤬🤬🤬
I was at the Bingley Hall ( Stafford, UK) gig the night before ( 30 Oct ) My 5th Rush gig.

This may have been the gig where Geddy asked for our respects for a couple of fans killed on their way to the gig.

I clearly remember the video for Red Barchetta, playing behind them.
