Ok, Rush vs U2 LIVE

I've seen both bands an equal number of times LIVE, and I'm torn on whose better live. It's all how you start a show....

YouTube - Rush in rio- One little victory (high quality)


YouTube - U2 - City Of Blinding Lights (DVD)


U2 's makes me cry(tears of joy)

Rush just gets me NUTSO!

I do like Rush, but with some strong qualifications (and I actually once had dinner at Geddy Lee's house). Seriously, Geddy half the time sounds like a squirrel trapped in a blender. My ears bleed from the pain. Yes, they are higly accomplished musicians and exciting to watch, but the vocals combined with the Ayn Rand-inspired lyrics are just too irritating for me to say I unambiguously like them.

I hate Rush. Their singer sounds like an elf on helium. It's like one of the dwarves from Spinal Tap started a progressive rock band.

Well I've seen both, but I won't post my opinion, for I don't feel like getting personally attacked again...

This is a U2 forum. What do people expect when they ask such things here?

I just found your "close-minded" minded creedo to be a trilfe contradictory, since you think Rush hasn't been "relevant"(still don't know what that means) since '91. Check out the new album sometime...it's a friggin masterpiece!

And c'mon...One Little Victory ROCKS like a motherf%%$#@er!!!!Thats how you start a show. U2 needs to get back to that.

I absolutely love Rush!! They were my first favorite band (saw them since the early 90's Roll the bones tour when I was just 11 or 12.) They'll always have a special place for me.

That said, I think that U2's shows are a little better just for the fact that they have more potential to have spontaneous elements in them. Also, I think bono is one of the most amazing frontmen ever and interacts more with the crowd etc.

Are you serious about the dinner thing? That's just ILL.
Anyway, Geddy's voice is BEAUTIFUL. People on this board ust hate his voice because they're jealous and ticked that Bono whored out his voice and can't hit big notes anymore. Geddy's on a WHOLE OTHER LEVEL vocally. He can still scream, but his voice has matured nicely since the 80's.(I in fact disliked Rush because of Geddy's voice as a kid, but once I gave them a chance, I've come to find Geddy's voice one of my favorite in all of ROCK...and his melodies in the 80's BLOW AWAY many of Bono's).

And Neil Peart makes Larry Mullen look like Verne Troyer on the drums.

dude.. ur on the wrong message board. I think you best hang at the Rush boards than over here..

IMO.. I HATE Geddy's VOICE.. It's like nails on a chalkboard to me.. Beautiful hardly.. I wouldn't call Bono's voice beautiful either. Either way it's a lose-lose situation.


You certainly aren't going to convince me of anything and I am not sure who else.
