A large portion of Rush's live set consists of songs from the late '70's and early '80's albums. While these are great songs and albums, Counterparts, Test For Echo, and Vapor Trails also have many great songs and are sorely under-represented in their live sets. I hope their sets will include more songs from their later albums, such as "Cut to the Chase," "Double Agent," "Time and Motion," "Totem," "Dog Years," "Virtuality," "Limbo," "Ceiling Unlimited," "Peaceable Kingdom," "The Stars Looked Down," "Nocturne," and "Freeze."
Here is the current Time Machine Set List for you...
Set 1. 1. The Spirit of Radio 2. Time Stand Still 3. Presto 4. Stick It Out 5. Workin' Them Angels 6. Leave That Thing Alone 7. Faithless 8. Brough Up To Believe 9. Freewill 10. Marathon 11. Subdivisions
Set 2. 1. Tom Sawyer 2. Red Barchetta 3. YYZ 4. Limelight 5. The Camera Eye 6. Witch Hunt 7. Vital Signs 8. Caravan 9. Drum Solo (Love for Sale) 10. Closer To The Heart (with new 12 string acoustic intro and arrangement) 11. 2112 (Overture/Temples of Syrinx) 12. Far Cry 13. La Villa Strangiato 14. Working Man
I personally think we could have had alternatives to Spirit of The Radio, 2112 and Workin' Them Angels but I hear they are reworking Jacob's Ladder, so the set list may change during the tour. I would rather hear A Farewell To Kings (a great opening track) and Middletown Dreams (one of their finest moments). Check out the Power Windows website; they usually have the most up to date set lists and news. Hope this helps!
The reason they chose to play the entire Moving Pictures set is because of the album's 30th anniversary(!) I thought it was a treat to see since I did not get to see the Moving Pictures tour when I was in high school...not to say they would have played everything off of the album during the original tour. It sure did bring back fond memories of my high school days.
