Setlist Draft

Setlist Draft: Rush



Welcome back to Setlist Draft, our hit series which sees the TLM hosts draft songs from a well-known band in order to replicate a famous setlists… but with a twist.

Much like the NFL (or NBA, NHL, MLB, etc.) draft, each song exists as a single entity. If someone else picks, it’s unable to be chosen by another drafter. To determine the number of songs, including the encore (or encores), we will choose real-life famous concerts from that artist. As a further wrinkle, the drafters have to place the songs in the setlist when they draft them. So once it’s there, it’s official and cannot be moved around.

For our second setlist draft we’ve chosen to structure the draft based on Rush’s final tour, R40.

The tour was named after the 40th anniversary of Neil Peart joining the band in July 1974. The tour encompassed 35 concerts with two the shows in Toronto being filmed for the Rush R40 live album.

For the entirety of the tour, Rush played 10 songs in their first set, 12 in their second and followed with a four song encore.

TLM Rush Draft

As the loser of the Led Zeppelin draft, Joe got an irritating penalty that he had to deal with for a couple rounds.

As the winner, Jason got to choose what pick he got.

The rest was up to the draftees.
