Newark Concert Review from the Washington Times

The Washington Times’ Eric Althoff published a review of Rush’s performance at the Prudential Center in Newark, NJ on June 27, a show that many fans seem to agree has been a highlight thus far on the R40 Live tour.

“For three gentlemen over 60, Messrs. Lee, Lifeson and Peart played with the energy of teenagers first thrust upon the world’s stage”

An exiting moment from the show was when the band played “Losing It” for only the second time this tour:

“In a surprise move, Mr. Lee brought to the stage violinist Jonathan Dinklage [brother of Peter Dinklage from Game of Thrones] for the elegiac “Losing It.” Mr. Dinklage’s mournful strains echoed across Prudential’s walls as a rare guest artist for the trio.”
