I skipped going down to this show to watch the Red Wings. Conflicting schedules suck. The shitty thing is that it's Tuesday and I'm pretty sure I could have been in for $20 by the start of Lake Fever. The Wings won and thank fuck for that because there was an Opiated. Opiated was last played 10/16/2007 in Boulder, CO. The live history of this song is interesting as there are gaps where it just disappears for 3-4 years. It's never been played a ton, but it has had its spurts. The gaps I was speaking of occurred from 08/08/1991 until 02/02/1995; 12/13/1996 until 07/13/2000; and 12/21/2000 until 10/10/2004.

I'm looking forward to hearing the bootlegs. Lake Fever, Save the Planet, Titanic Terrarium, The Rules all made rare appearances. From We Are the Same, Country Day and Queen of the Furrows made what I would describe as rare appearances relative to the other songs on the album.

The other Tour Breakout was Alex Lifeson. He plays guitar for a little outfit known as RUSH. He also owns the greatest live music bar in Toronto. The Orbit Room on College St in Little Italy. Check it out.

I'm kicking myself as I type. This randomness is a beautiful thing dontcha think?

Stay tuned for an extensive tour stats update.
