They played Overture/Temples/Grand Finale. Which is good enough, since Geddy can't sing high anymore :P Heck, it's mostly instrumental! :-D

What d'ya mean, Geddy can't sing high? Maybe not like 20 years ago, but he hit a pretty high note on The Seeker - "I've been searchin' low and HIIIIIGGHHH!" As my wife the Who fan put it, I bet Daltry can't do that now!

Geddy can still hit the high notes nicely! So they tune 2112 down one step. Big deal.

SOR on this tour, Freewill (on VT) were AWESOME. He wasn't straining. Maybe he wasn't as insane as when he was younger but... He even hits them more smoothly than in the past. It's like BUTTA. His voice has mellowed and "seasoned" with age.

In a recent article he called his voice "furrier" than it was in the past. Better trained and he liked it better. 8)

Oh, and t, you crack me UP!!! :-D
