RUSH SECC, Glasgow, May 14 * * *

August 11, 2011

Once you got past the noodley nonsense and appreciated tonight’s Rush show for what it was – a prog-rock spectacle – there was much to enjoy and not just because it was three-hours long.

Musicianship over musical content was the theme for the night. Luckily for the sold-out crowd, close-ups of each member doing his thing on the giant video screen catered for the thousands of die-hards, even if it did make singer/bassist Geddy Lee look like a homeless vampire.

The epic Tom Sawyer was the night’s stand out moment both musically and visually and while much of what followed was for the devoted, there was just about enough to keep the uninitiated entertained.
