Though I'd kick start this thread again, especially as it relates to Rush and U2. Rush is on, what may be their final tour, and as such is somewhat of retrospective. I have not seen it, but reviews are good and the set list starts recent, then goes backward in time, playing some real chestnuts not played for some time. I saw Rush twice back in the 80's, never thought 3 people could produce so much sound. I have followed them off an on over the years and find their most recent album pretty good
The I&E tour is somewhat the same, but presented in a different way, almost as theater as apposed to a concert. I have seen this show and been an ardent U2 fan since '83 and seen them many times in those years.
Not sure this is a valid comparison as their styles are much different, but they are among the few bands still together after 30+ years, still touring and making "relevant" music.
