VIDEO: Rush kick off Clockwork Angels tour

Rush kicked off their “Clockwork Angels” World Tour Friday night at the Verizon Wireless Arena in Manchester, NH.

The trek is in support of the band's latest project, which also serves as their 20th studio album.

Rush pulled out a lot of rarely-played tunes in the opening set, while the second set featured a large section devoted to the new album.

The first videos from the show are now making their way online, since the concert only ended a few hours ago.

SPOILER ALERT: Check out the setlist here.

The North American leg runs to December 2 when it wraps in Houston, following which the band heads to Europe to begin a series of dates in May.
