I recall an interview a few years back where Geddy and Alex said they would never do a farewell tour.  They just wanted to bow out quietly when the time came.  Neil has said similar things in his writings.  Sorry, I don't have any links for those comments.

I wonder if Skynyrd will keep doing their Southern Rock cruise?  I hadn't realized until I looked, these cruises are very popular and a ton of bands are doing them.

Our local arena in Hershey gets fewer and fewer concerts as the years go by.  I told Mr. blues recently that if a decent band is scheduled this summer, we should go.  So I see that Lynyrd Skynyrd is scheduled for Hershey on the same day of a BIG wedding we are going to!  :facepalm:

Yes, I can't imagine Neil feeling the need to interact with his fans one more time, he has always preferred the quick exit...

Rush had a farewell tour. They just never came right out and said that R40 was it.

Because Rush already did a farewell tour. I feel very sorry for those confused by their "kinda sorta last thing" statements at the time, but R40 was most definitely a farewell tour.

Farewell.

Yeah, if you don't think that Neil coming up to the front of the stage at the end of the last show wasn't a farewell then I don't know what to tell ya.

They’re too good for an all-you-can-eat, gaudy interiored, fat bastard cruise.

P.S. I enjoy cruises.

:)   :)   Yeah, I can't quite picture them there!

I was just surprised to see how many bands do them!  Basically,  almost everyone, except the A++ listers like U2, Elton John, and Springsteen.  There are cruises with KISS, Styx, Yes, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Joe Bonamassa, Marillion, Bad Company, etc etc.  The pay must be good!  

I've never been on one.  My sister lives near Tampa and has been on a few but her stories (plus those of a friend that worked for Norwegian Cruise Line) have left me wondering about ones on really big ships.  I have a friend who's nuts for European river cruises and those look like a lot of fun!  There are smaller ship ones that do the Alaskan inside passage or the Great Lakes and St. Lawrence river and those look really interesting as well.  Maybe in a few years.

Maybe someone could talk Geddy or Alex into this one!

Put it this way, if you’d like to travel then don’t take a cruise.
If you want to eat like a pig, see some onboard entertainment, get drunk whenever, and enjoy sunshine from the sea’s point of view, then take a cruise. They’re certainly not for everyone and 99 times out of 100 I’d rather not take a cruise but that one time is worth the experience.

From that list I’d see Hackett, Palmer, Barre (I’d be most interested in him above the entire list), Neal Morse, Saga, and Belew. I don’t know many of the others but I’d likely check them out because I’m there and there’s nothing to do in the middle of the sea anyway!
