This has likely been posted before, but since they are touring again (yay!!!!) the numbers keep changing.

How many shows have you all been to?  Starting on which tour?  And how many will it be by the end of the CA tour?

Nine since 1996 for me. I've seen every tour since then at least once. This July will be my tenth show.

BIG FAT O, that's how many.  The closest I got to a show was R30 in London and LA last year, both collapsed due to family issues.  I've given up any remote hope of ever seeing my favourite band play live down under.  Enjoy your shows.

This Saturday in Atlantic City will be my 24th show.  First show was back in 1996 on the Power Windows Tour.  I hope I get to see them twice more this leg, Hershey & Saratoga...but we shall see...

I saw them September 30th 2012 in Edmonton Alberta and it was the second best night of my life.  Nothing is going to top the Metallica show I saw last August, not even my favourite band.  Show #2 is coming up this summer.

One.

Roll The Bones, 2-5-92, I was 13.

I have an interesting story behind that, tbh. I was in 8th grade and I was supposed to see Queensryche that New Years Eve, but my parents said the only condition to me going to that was if I was on my best behavior in school from the day that concert was announced until Christmas vacation started.

Well, I blew that, but my mom felt so bad for me she got me a ticket to see Rush instead.

And I've had a crush on Alex ever since. :wub:

Five. CA twice. I was going to go again this leg but alas no California dates. I had been thinking about Portland but doubt it's going to happen.
