That Tsunami of Sound Rush Hits Cricket

Phil Spector is credited for developing the recording technique known as the "wall of sound." After witnessing Canadian progressive-rock trio Rush, I would call what they unleashed in Chula Vista the "tsunami of sound."

Three musicians — Alex Lifeson (guitar), Geddy Lee (bass/keyboard/vocals), and Neil Peart (drums) — take the phrase "power trio" to the next level, and beyond. Complex layers of drums, bass, keyboards, guitar, and vocals all come together so fluently that it sounds otherworldly. All accompanied by a light show worthy of their stature.

Performing many of their biggest hits, such as “Spirit of Radio,” “Limelight,” “Subdivisions,” “Working Man,” and the entire Moving Pictures album, the band showed that they take their craft seriously, and it shows in their energetic performance.

Even the technically complex “YYZ” came off without a hitch on stage. Peart was so smooth, so effortless, that he doesn't look like he's pushing 60 years!

The trio performed two songs from their upcoming CD, Clockwork Angels, "BU2B" and "Caravan," both of which were well received by the packed house.

  • Concert: Rush
  • Date: June 18
  • Venue: Cricket Wireless Amphitheater
  • Seats: 12th row, center orchestra
