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.

 

 

Yeah but wouldn't you want hear it regardless. It's a great song.


Not to mention the potential that Ben Mink -- the musician on the actual studio recording, may be there to play it live with them... and documented on a DVD!  Makes perfect sense to me!!  Bring it -- please!

I'd love to hear it, it is a really good song.  But people have been calling for more rockin' tunes like Vapor Trail, Cut to The Chase, and Totem and are never going to get them at this point. If Losing It is on that list, so be it, I wouldn't lose sleep. Whether or not if it's symbolic for them to play it on this tour, I'd rather hear a rock band play rock songs.

I'm indifferent to Nocturne. Freeze is one of the few Rush songs I actively dislike.

No thanks to Losing It, I`d rather hear just about anything else (and I`m trying to stay spoiler free).

As long as it`s the original version they try to play instead of the flat remixed version.   :D

As this is the spoiler forum, let me point out that they are playing Roll The Bones.

Why would they dust that one (RTB) off other than the fact  that they enjoy playing it?  They must know the fans are sure as shit sick of hearing it.

Could simply have to do with it being a fairly successful single.

I guess it fits into the clownish pastiche they've been cultivating.  

 

I believe it's a terrible song.  But that's how it goes with bands like this.  I'm sure Zeppelin fans hate the fact that Stairway is their most popular song, as with Floyd's Another Brick...

I Just checked---

 

Oddly enough, New World Man is their biggest hit, by a pretty wide margin.  Why don't they play that one?

As a guitar player I can tell you that NWM is kind of a bore to play on guitar.  That might be why.  Who knows???  RTB is has more variation, a solo, and Alex does get to improvise a little during the rap that myself and everyone else hates. 

 

Just a side note, I once said that they don't play JL live because it's too easy and boring to play (meaning on guitar) and someone freaked on me because I guess it's one of the more challenging songs to play on drums.

There are other things I'd rather hear than RTB too, but I'm not sure how one can get "sick" of hearing a song at best a couple of times every couple of years.  They didn't even play it on the last two tours.  Hence the need for it to be "dusted off," to use your words.  And I'm sure there are plenty of fans that like it.

Well even if it never gets played in concert... at least it was semi live now and on record.. sort of. That is actually very cool to hear that in sound check and it sounds really good even in this format.
Why are we here???? Because we're here.
