Wow, that really needs to get more views. One of the coolest and most original tributes I've ever seen (and I'm only 6 minutes into it; hafta watch the rest later).

I love how they incorporated the members and some album cover art into their marching formations.

(Usually not that easy to say something nice about Ohio State U, either! )

The Immortal! Never gets old watching him play. Loved a couple of those deep cuts. Presto, perhaps the most underrated and cerebral RUSH album ever. I am made from the dust of the stars, and the oceans flow in my veins. Special meaning for a surfer IMHO. And Faithless from Snakes and Arrows. Fools and thieves are well disguised in the temple and marketplace. Truth! Saw them 15 times. Wish it had been 30. Never considered a RUSH cover band but now I would jump to go see YYnot. They are amazing and just got a new lead singer that kills it. Been lobbying on there FB page to get them back to Melbourne. Would be epic at the King Center...

I've been following YYNOT as well. Their new singer is an improvement.

That was the year I saw them. Roll the Bones album I believe. Didn't get into their older good stuff until I started experimenting with that funny stuff ??

Fucking epic! Geddy still got the voice. So awesome to see the two of them performing again. Many many memories and feel good vibes. Almost didn't get to see the last show. Was 2015 when they toured and I saw only 35 shows announced I was a bit puzzled. That's a baby tour for RUSH surely they would do a second leg, announce more shows and swing back to Florida. Turns out Neil was suffering from severe tendonitis which hampered his playing. He always said when it was done it was done, he would never perform if he could not do it to his top level. So the tour was short by design and luckily I bought tickets to the Tampa show at Amalie. Took my two kids and went with a buddy and his wife. We couldn't figure out what the HC was on our tickets. Turns out it was a handicapped booth at club level right above the lower bowl. We lucked out. Our own private balcony with enough room for 15 people but it was only us. More room than I've ever had at a concert. And the show, epic as always. They started with the full stage ensemble, enough amps, lighting props and laser lights to power a small country. And they began with music from the most recent album and worked there way backwards chronologically, album by album. Each time they went farther back in time, a section of the set (amps, effects, screens, etc.) would be removed off the stage until in the end it was almost bare. Finishing with stuff from the very first albums and the stage made to look like a high school dance hall which is basically where they began. It was May 24th so they shocked everyone by doing Lakeside Park off Caress of Steel. "everyone would gather, on the 24th of May, sitting in the sands to watch the fireworks display "! They brought out the double necks, both Gedd and Al, for Xanadu. It was epic and will go down as my favorite RUSH show ever. Great memories...
