Fantastic song, but I'm a little surprised they would play it. With Alex and Neil's ailments, and Geddy's voice (although he sounds pretty great so far), this song might just hit a little too close to home.

I think this is why they will play it. Because it describes the current situation. If they can do a 'getting older' song like The Garden, then why not this one?

RIGHT!! Losing It and Nobodys Hero should have been played instead of the oft retread The Pass and Red Sector A.

Sounds great ... I don't think they could end a set with this, but they really brought the heavy towards the end of the song so I do think it'd fit in nicely. Hope they aren't taking anything away and just playing longer. 

Could just be for the Toronto shows they are filming? 

Also, is it too much to hope that they'll play all of the songs from all of the setlists at the Forum show since it may be the last one. =)

They should have played it last tour, but they didn't, so they shouldn't play it this tour.  A song they've never played live.  Ever.

 

Makes sense!

Maybe the strings patch is a place-holder and they'll be doing the song with a special guest.

Yes and will be performed live for the video shoot. They continue to soundcheck it to keep the chops on it. But I have heard there will be at least one guest violinist performing for the video shoot. I say at least because I have heard that the original recording is two seperate overlapped dueling solos with delay to fatten it up.

So I have heard. Though there was that pod cast some weeks ago with one othe violinist from the CA tour (Jacob?) He was mentioning some additional Rush work as I recall. 

 

** I just went back and listened to the podcast to confirm the above about what Jacob said and while he did reveal a nugget, it was in no way in relation to what we're discussing here, so I admit. I was incorrect.

Here's what led to my confused memory. Have a listen begining at 31:05 and ending at 33:30. With all due props to Rushcast who have some really great podcasts that they've done.

Why go all fanboy on me?  They had a fucking string ensemble last tour and didn't play it.  The ONLY song in the catalog with electric violin and they said, nah, next time.  Makes perfect sense.

I can't disagree with this.

 

However, just because they didn't do it last time - that does not mean that they shouldn't do it now.

*Ben Mink continues to reside in Toronto. It wouldn't make sense to bring him along on the tour just for one song.

*They sound check the whole tune

*Ged's adds a nice raised vocal part for the last line

They didn't play it on the last tour because they didn't feel that they had "lost it" yet.  Perhaps now they finally realize the song fits them.

Probably stating the obvious but I'm sure it will be before Subdivisions. Geddy would probably introduce it by saying "now for something special, a song we never played live before....I think..."

I didn't mind at all how Ged took the vocal up a 5th or so there at the end. Sounded nice.

He did have a pretty heinous vocal flub earlier in the song, but hopefully with continued practice he'll nail it.

He's having trouble mid-range, where his passaggios are, not at the extreme high or low ends of his range.

Thank you for posting that video -- wow!  Love this song so much!!!!  Got chills listening to the soundcheck!  I thought FOR SURE they would play it on the CA tour when they announced the string accompaniment.  When they did't... I resided that I would never hear that song live.  Hope remains now...  My son and I will be at the Friday, June 19th Toronto show.  I soooooo hope they do it that night!!!!  I'll be crushed if they perform it at the Wednesday Toronto show or just LA.    

Hearing that soaring solo (instrumental) section in a large arena will be UNREAL!
