Rush, at the Verizon Center in the middle of downtown Manchester, New Hampshire, on their first night of their CLOCKWORK ANGELS 2012-2013 tour. Truly a number one band, playing to a loyal welcoming audience. They played old songs from the past 30 something years, as well as their new material from their June 2012 release album, Clockwork Angels. This is Rush’s “YYZ” song from Moving Pictures. YYZ is an instrumental rock piece by Canadian rock band Rush, from the 1981 album Moving Pictures. Following its initial release, it became one of the band’s most popular pieces and has been a staple of the band’s live performances. The song has been featured on all live concert video recordings in some form. On both the live album Exit…Stage Left (1981), and the concert video recording A Show of Hands (1989), a version of the track is played with drummer Neil Peart integrating his full-length drum solo. “YYZ” also appears on Guitar Hero II. Clockwork Angels is the nineteenth full-length studio album by Canadian rock band Rush released on June 12, 2012. The album was recorded in April 2010 at Blackbird Studio in Nashville, Tennessee and from October – December 2011 at Revolution Recording in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The album’s cover depicts a clock marked with alchemical symbols instead of numbers. It displays the time as 9:12 (21:12 in 24-hour time past noon), in reference to the band’s 2112 album and its title suite. Other symbols are incorporated into the band name and album
