Lots of exciting rumours are finally being confirmed this week.  With this may come the knowledge of things that not everyone wants to know, such as setlist spoilers.

In the past, we've asked that anytime you start a thread that contains setlist information, or really 'any' confirmed information that may be welcomed news to some, but unwelcomed to others - please put the words *SPOILERS* in the thread title, and state it once again at the beginning of your post.  This gives those who don't want to know the chance to avoid these things before it gets ruined for them.

Further, if you post in a thread not already focused on spoiler information, kindly refrain from posting spoilers in that thread.  Keep it to just threads which are specifically created to contain spoiler information.

Thanks for your cooperation.  trink39.gif

Understood....however, I have no idea why anyone would NOT want to know when, if and where they are coming.  Just boggles my mind.

Some people just don't want to know.  And it is surprisingly easy to slip up and give information away by accident - e.g., "Neil dropped stick during (insert name of song here) last night" .

He means for tour dates, and I agree.

Anythign official from Rush, tour dates, tour name, MOVING PICTURES IN IT"S ENTIRETY!  Those aren't spoilers they are official announcements.

Im not sure of the protocol here, because I wasn't around during the last tour, but are there usually threads for each show, or one tour discussion thread, where we can make the "Neil dropped a stick during....", "Alex's guitar broke during...." sort of posts.

I believe Jack referred to that official announcement as a spoiler, but I agree with you. No one on the planet will go to a show not knowing they are going to play Moving Pictures. Its on the website so its not a a spoiler.

I should have left the topic locked.

You know.. as if people don't let spoilers slip each and every time we go through this.  eyesre4.gif

You're right guys.  You run the place, okay?

Sorry if agreeing with G Eater was wrong but I thought everyone logged on to Rush.com this morning before they even took a piss so I just thought that info will not possibly be a spoiler. I do happen to know a couple gems coming out of the vault that I would never mention in a thread like this. Sorry if I pissed you off on the joyous day. atickhum.gif

I'm not sure I understand...how can anything announced on RUSH.COM be considered a spoiler?  It's an official announcement.

Setlists, Alex's antics, opening montages...these are considered spoilers no?

let me know if you would?  dont want to cross a line

However - if you don't want to know what's on tap for the setlist etc., what the hell are you doing on an OCD fanboi messageboard about that very band?

Case in point: I felt like going 'retro' in 2007, so I didn't want to know the setlist for the 1st leg of the S&A tour.

Guess what?

I stayed away from Rush messageboards until the show.

Fans are excited and want to talk about what's going on - if you don't want to have your experience ruined, stay away.

It's an incredibly simple and effective technique.

Seems that it wouldn't be spoiler material if it's glaringly obvious on the official pages. There really won't be any spoilers until the first night of the show, when setlists, for instance, would be a good example of spoilage.

+1.  There is always someone who will text in real time from the first show letting you know the set list.  Now that is a SPOILER!

I didn't want to know the setlist last time around, or so I thought.  About 2 weeks before the show I finally caved and looked it up.  It made no difference to my enjoyment of the show.
