Lerxst’s Vapour Trail Rant:
“Buenos Nochas mein froinds. I was dreaming, and I saw a snake. I don’t know what that has to do with anything, but then I heard a strange voice, and it whispered to me, ‘Snoring…’. I continued dreaming, and this the time the strange voice said to me very loudly, ‘SNORING! Please, don’t snore anymore!’ I sat there in bed like this – (shot of Alex’s eyes on the big screen popping wide open) – and then I decided to take a walk. And I was walking and walking and walking, and then I met these guys, and we started walking and walking and walking, and we came to Ontario Place, and then we ended up HERE!”

Members Of The Band:
Geddy Lee (Vocals, Bass and Keyboards)

Comments: Ah, Rush. Growing up Canadian there is nothing more to be said. After a tragic series of events in Neil Peart’s life, Rush had gone on indefinite hiatus. Geddy and Alex were both willing to call it a day if that had been what Neil wanted to do. But, after a period of self reflection and travel, Neil wanted to get back to what it was that he did best; beat the living shit out of the drums. So, Rush tentatively reassembled and found that they could still make new, vital music together. And so, the Vapour Trails album was born. As technically complex as Rush can tend to be, they have always been a live band in a lot of ways, so touring to support their latest effort was a given.

And, considering this was a comeback of sorts, the show they put on this evening was worthy of any performance they had ever put on.

If the long layoff had cause any rust whatsoever, well, none was evident on this evening.

And the set list they put forward was amazing.

And getting to hear By-Tor and the Snow Dog again, albeit in a much lower register, was a decidedly unexpected but very much enjoyed surprise.

And our hometown boys were back.

Life was good. 🙂
