Seeing this live at New Haven Coliseum in 1991 - when the whole stadium went nuts - I’ll never forget it.


'91? If that was the show Primus opened that was '92. That was the last show I ever saw there.

Hey...where's Perry?

I love the guitar solo in Between The Wheels as played by Alex on the R30 tour, especially this version from Radio City Music Hall. Solo starts at about 40:40 but the epic part is the sheer emotion on Alex's face at about 41:10


His expression really is great there. And the BTW solo is one of New Rush's most epic moments, for sure. The song itself is the jewel of GUP, imo. Awhile back, I considered starting a thread called "Rush's Greatest Concert Moments." This selection would definitely be perfect for that one.

Hey there goes Alex. He's loaded with money. Wow he's really set himself up great.

Hemispheres was a middle ranking Rush album for me. Never really felt what the fuss was about. Much bigger fan of AF2K and Perm Waves.

My own most epic moment was Countdown live in 1983 - the chopper searchlight, the thunderous roar at ignition, Neil flailing at his kit as Columbia rolls onto her back on her plume of golden fire.

Which is perfect. Because Hemispheres is the middle album of the 3. ;)

You are absolutely right. It was 92 - second half of their tour I believe. They played Hartford in 91 (with Gary Moore I think).

I could be wrong but I vaguely recall it being blues rocker Mary Tyler Moore.

I was at the St Petersburg show. Hmmm, wonder how many leap day shows the boys have done over the years?

Another fine Alex emoting guitar solo moment. Obviously here the director setup in advance a dedicated tracking shot to feature it.

The acoustic tone on that one is so convincing - I reckon it's been overdubbed with an actual acoustic guitar. I don't think a piezo pickup and digital tone shaping and all that would get you that close.

I think these days it's probably achievable.

That sounds right. I had never heard of him either way. I remember Steve Morse opening up for them in Hartford in '85 amd wondering who the hell he was as well...

Hey...where's Perry?

So funny in retrospect - those poor opening bands with their tiny drumkits! And they always sounded like shit as the FOH guy would slowly dial in the arena...

First time I heard that live as I didn’t see their final U.K. tour.

Playing it too slow, I think.

Try listening to it at 1.5 speed. The speed settings are located in the gear icon at bottom right.
