RUSH comes to Brooklyn

The smoke machine was cranking as Alex Lifeson of RUSH performs a solo during the band's nearly three hour show at Brooklyn's Barclays Center.

Drummer Neil Peart is always a fan favorite when RUSH comes to town.  He writes the lyrics for the songs in addition to being the musical heartbeat of the three man group.

RUSH was formed in 1968 and these three guys, Alex Lifeson (L), Geddy Lee and Neil Peart (R) have been together since 1974.

Geddy Lee sings, plays bass and keyboards for the band, RUSH.  Drummer Neil Peart performs in the background.

Neil Peart likes to flips his drum sticks and - in this case - twirl one of his sticks during a song.

The Barclays Center in Brooklyn is packed for RUSH's first concert in Brooklyn.

Neil Peart and his famous drum kit.  It rotates and provides him with any numbers of ways to provide percussion for the group.
