WOW!  that is supporting the band.  If I had the money, I would probably hit every show on the tour.

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.

i still can't believe no CA dates.  A friend of my and huge RUSH fan moved out there a few years ago.  He said the nearest show to him this tour was many hours away.  I can't understand how they are not doing any CA shows.  More dates coming?  I have not heard anything about that as a possibility.  Anyone hear anything about why no CA shows or if more possible dates will come?

July will be my fourth. I just wish I was a little bit older, or had decided on my career right after high school to go to college, cause by now i'd have a little more money to see multiple shows on this tour. I saw them on the 2nd leg of snakes, both legs of TM, and July in Portland will be my first on the CA tour. I really do hope they have another tour in them, I want to be front row at a show beffore they hang it up

Fourteen.  Next month will be 15.  Multiple shows on the same tour, shows in other states, Counterparts from the second row, being part of a meet-and-greet (love and shove), etc.

Fifteen (15): non-fans or casual fans say "that's a lot," but diehard Rush fans say "that's nuthin!"

Last night was show #21 for me (across the last 13 tours).  I'm amazed at the folks whose numbers are so large.  snaked, 17 times on HYF?!?  Holy crap! :o  Now I understand how the numbers can grow so large.

It wasn't until I moved to New England that it became geographically feasible for me to see several shows on the same tour and until I was in my 30's before it was financially feasible.

financially and geographically feasable is important.  For me, If i per say won the lottery today, I would probably hit front row for every remaining show of their carear, and bring some of you all with me.

Las Vegas in November 2012 was #60.  I've only got 4 scheduled this summer so KC will have me top out at 64 shows. I was 12 in 1976 (and a female to boot) when I saw my first show!

According to the rush diehards that I speak with on the tour, they are going with the notion that the RRHOF ceremony counts as a tour date and if you look on Rushisaband.com, Ed who runs the site, also has Los Angeles listed as the first of the 2013 Clockwork Angels tour dates...

Everyone is entitled to their opinion of course....but I argued and said that a tour date consists of the regular rush show, with the ensemble, with the current bells and whistles and with one of the full setlists....

I live in NJ, but will always find any excuse to travel out west, I love the whole desert southwest....I was so hoping rush was going to hit the SF bay area, sacramento, Reno, Vegas, Alburqueque, Phoenix, Tuscon, wherever they wanted....but they skipped all of  that...

Meanwhile they have been up and down the east coast and are doing many dates scattered throughout the midwest....

I have been hoping and hoping they add 6-10 shows for september, but everything is pointing to that not happening....Aug 5, 2013, the day after the last show in Kansas City will start a very long hiatus....don't expect anything in 2014, maybe even 2015....keep your fingers crossed...

I've been to 12 shows, starting with GUP in 1984.  Should be 13, but I missed the Counterparts tour due to my pain-in-the-ass son who insisted on being born a couple days before the show.  Some things never change.

34, Chicago will be 35, Milwaukee will be 36. I was hoping to make 50 before they retire but I don't think I'll make it. I figure 2 more tours after the "Clockwork Angels"
