“Glad you could make it tonight, we have six to eight million songs or so to play for you,” Rush bassist, vocalist and all-around prankster Geddy Lee jokingly said, addressing a sold out Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Conn. Thursday night (May 9). Although he may have been exaggerating a bit, it summoned loud cheers from the crowd at the mere thought of it. When you have 19 albums under your belt and many songs that clock in at six to seven minutes, the options are pretty wide open on any given night.

Almost a year after the June 2012 release of ‘Clockwork Angels,’ the Canadian prog power trio are still out on the road in support of it, and if the fans have their way, the tour may never come to an end. Dispensing with an opening act, Rush instead opt for a monstrous two-set evening. The first half of ‘An Evening with Rush’ consisted of selections from their past discography, from the show opener ‘Subdivisions’ to tracks like ‘Limelight’ and ‘The Analog Kid.’ Lee, guitarist Alex Lifeson and drummer Neil Peart have been playing so long together that their live set is rather flawless, yet the trio clearly still enjoy sharing the stage with each other.

After a brief intermission, the second set of the night focused on their latest disc ‘Clockwork Angels,’ highlighted by the Clockwork Angels String Ensemble made up of six violinists, two cellists and a conductor to bring the orchestrations to life.

After many years of being overlooked, Rush were finally inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame this year.
