Gigantour 2013 – Rocking the Foundation of Hammerstein Ballroom, NYC

Posted August 16, 2013 at 5:10 pm | No comments

Gigantour touched down in New York City at none other than the legendary Hammerstein Ballroom on August 7th. The opulent venue was originally constructed as an Opera House in 1906, but tonight’s show would be a much different type of music than it was a designed for, a music that will rock the old ballroom off its foundation and possibly level it.

Neil Peart Instructional DVD “Taking Center Stage” Review

Neil Peart Instructional DVD “Taking Center Stage” Review

With a track listing comprised of Rush’s 2010/2011 “Time Machine” tour set list, which featured the entire Moving Pictures album, this release is a fulfillment of many Rush fans’ long-held wishes, as it offers a chance to see what Peart is actually doing on many classic Rush songs.
