- They keep rockin' in the rain: Outdoor Concerts, Sometimes the show can't go on if danger looms: "Mark Campana, president of Live Nation Midwest Music, said the plug was pulled after a group meeting with the Live Nation tour producer and local staff, Rush's manager and the band's production team. Rush was not involved in the meeting. 'The key was the amount of water that had fallen,' Campana said. 'The wind caused the water to blow onstage. We all decided not to test the electrical system. We could have cranked up the electricity, but we felt a test could cause harm to people since they were already in the theater. Equipment was set up. We are always going to err on the conservative side when it comes to safety.'"- Chicago Sun Times, July 15, 2010
Besides the linernotes essay which can be found here, the artwork is unique as it features live images taken on tour in Europe in the 1970's, including one photo of Rush on stage at the Hammersmith Odeon during the A Farewell To Kings Tour (i.e. the two night stand which yielded disk three of Different Stages). In addition, three of Geddy's retired basses as pictured in the photos, including his single and doublenecked Rickenbackers as well as his teardrop shaped Fender Precision. All images have converted into Wallpaper images and have been added to the Album Art Gallery here. - Thanks to John at Cygnus-X1.net for providing the linernotes scans!
