    He's got two PRS guitars in this video. Starts with one that he never plays, then suddenly he's got a different one...

    Gotta love video editing, also gotta love Rush! I've seen them many times and he does not disappoint with equipment. Sometimes he changes guitars every song. It a gear fest. Doesn't sound to bad either lol.

    Outstanding! Thanks for posting this!

    Yep, but at least now we get the song straight from the source!

    Thank you for posting this video! I saw the teaser preview years ago, didn’t realize this was the full vid. I long suspected I’ve been butchering Limelight and TS on a near daily basis, now I have confirmation!

    Just need Alex to do this with all their other songs now!

    Even a "pretty close" version of "Limelight" can sound great!

    I watched the Limelight and Tom Sawyer vids yesterday. Terrific! Even more appreciation for the subtleties of Alex’s playing.
