You mean, who was the opening band? Yikes, that's a tough one. I'm sure it wasn't the same band for the entire tour but I do remember seeing them in St. Louis, something like 3 times in that year! I was crazy, they kept coming back to play bigger and bigger venues. They were playing multi-nighters as well.
I can't answer your question because I was really young then and I saw them with so many bands. I really don't know.

Hiya everyone.
I voted for Power Windows. A tough choice between it, Presto, Hemispheres, and Signals, but in the end memories won it over. It reminds me of my first post high school girlfriend, and 14 years on, they are still pleasant memories. (Although, it was a terrible time...remember being 17? urgh!)

I'd have to pick "Moving Pictures" because I think it is the most complete, all around album RUSH ever did. My only pet peeve with this album/era, is that a lot of people jumped on the bandwagon. RUSH were the "flavour of the month" album, and tour wise.
I like a lot of the older stuff as well, (FBN, COS, 2112, FTK, PW). I also love the first live album, "All the World's A Stage", (the energy, and raw power on that disc is incredible).
I also love RTB, and I think "Presto" is pretty under-rated. Damn, this is a tough question for an older fan !!!!!!!!!!!!!  wacko.gif

I voted for Fly By Night. It was a hard choice between this, 2112 and Moving Pictures. The tie breaker ended up being the amazing cover art.

BTW, I'm new here. Hello all!!
