Rush Kicks Off 2nd Leg of Snakes & Arrows Tour

Rush kicked off the second half of their tour to support their latest studio album Snakes & Arrows last Friday. (One of their best CDs in ages - reviewed here)

The band spent a week rehearsing, and did the kick off concert, in Puerto Rico. The set list isn't all that much different from the first leg of the tour, but they have added a couple of my faves. Like the first leg, they are doing eight or nine new Snakes & Arrows tunes (three of them are instrumentals), so if you like the new CD, you'll need to see this show.

Also, today the band released a double live CD of last years' leg, called Snakes & Arrows live. It's a great representation of the tour, and a good peek into what they are doing right now.

Here is a video of the band's opening song from Puerto Rico last Friday. The intro video is pretty funny if you can follow it. Enjoy.

Excellent! I would personally characterize Snakes and Arrows just shy of Vapor Trails (both quite excellent), which was in turn their best CD in ages. But that's just personal taste talking.

Yeah I like VT too. I just think S&A breathes a bit more. Must be all those acoustic guitars. They are for sure on a roll!
