pretty sure that was my one an only cap center show, which I think at the time had changed it's name to USAir?
I feel like we had the second to the last row 400 level seats

it was a long show and I was not a fan of 2112 stuff either
did just read this " after the 76 tour, Rush would not perform the track in its entirety until their 1996 tour"

About the only thing I really remember is that stupid roll the bones rap with that silly video of the Skelton rapping

One of the most disappointing live shows I ever saw… Test for echo around 1997 at cap center

I just wasn’t into them anymore

Around 1985-87 it was all I listened to but by the mid 90s I was not into that type of music at all…everything was so un spontaneous and perfectly clean almost shrill …and some of their albums post power Windows are complete turds

All I remember about the show is insanely bright flashing lights and some horrible biggish suit Alex Lifeson was wearing and during set break being in bathroom and disgusting looking old people crowing they had done 2112 which of course meant nothing to me as I was obsessed with the permanent waves-power Windows stuff

I never even tried to see them again..sometimes you just can’t and shouldn’t go back but for a couple of years (9th and most of 10th) I was that misfit in high school with the Walkman and headphones finding belonging in listening to subdivisions.. I think even if I hadn’t been taken away from my school by my dad fleeing the US I would have still moved on …I was just beginning to be part of the in crowd…and they were listening to Standing on the beach

 Rush: Wandering the Face of the Earth: The Official Touring History
Alex Lifeson, Geddy Lee, and Neil Peart performed together for the first time to an audience of 11,000 people in 1974. Forty years later, their last tour sold over 442,000 tickets. This is the story of everything in between. This is the story of Rush.

I mean, they did cut the dog open. Why wouldn't they charge her?

Because the surgery was based on a misdiagnosis?
I'm not trying to be obtuse here, but: THEY STILL DID THE SURGERY!

If they diagnose me with a disease and I go buy the medicine for it and later its determined I never had the disease, I don't get to return the medicine.

right, because you've just involved a third party: the pharmacy.

if a doctor told you to take a medication, and he sold the pills to you directly, then later called to say "woops, i accidentally looked at someone else's chart, you don't need that medicine" - wouldn't you be having a chat with that doctor about getting your money back for the unneeded meds he sold you?  i certainly would.
Asking for a refund is a poor people’s move.
