I have seen them twice- for the Time Machine Tour and the Clockwork Angels tour.  Wish I had seen them during the 40th.

I think it'd be interesting to make this an actual poll. Get an idea just how obsessed this forum is

And I scoff at your implication that more shows attended correlates to greater Rush obsession! I scoff in your general direction!

Ha!

Ha ha!

Oh, yeah- I know what you mean.

Thirty-seven CA tour shows that guy saw. I figured up with ticket costs and travel and lodging and all that, that had to be about a $10K investment. Just unbelievable!

Hmmm, but if I had the means and the freedom to do that, would I do it, too?

Oh yes. :yes:

Won a contest on the radio (106.9 Va Beach).  Also came with a meet and greet.

A 3 night run in Frisco in 84.  Nice.  Rare seeing Rush do more than 2 nights in a venue (can only recall Massey Hall '76, Hammersmith Odeon in '79, and the long run at Radio City Music Hall (can't recall what year that was)).

Think that Radio City was either Signals or the p/g warmup...oh wait...maybe a MP warmup. I will need to look it up!

I was lucky to catch the R30 consecutive night RCMH run, not knowing at that time it would be my last Rush consecutive night run :(

Very low end of 51 to 75. I'd have to audit my stubs.

Vapor Trails Tour was my high at 9.

A few years back I chimed in when I had seen them 31 times, beginning with the Permanent Waves tour at Cobo Hall in Detroit. I was also at the (then) brand new Joe Louis Arena when Max Webster opened for Rush in 1979, which I recently learned was the very first rock show ever at "The Joe".  I should be at 38 but the Jan. 26, 1978, A Farewell to Kings tour ticket went unused because of a monster snow storm that day that meant mom was NO WAY driving us punk kids into the city for a rock show... dang...  Since my last post, I've caught six shows, including the (hopefully not) final gig at The Fabulous Forum on Aug. 1, 2015... So, my RUSH show total stands at 37 shows... I hope to say, "...and counting..." in the very near future... Rock ON!

the best part of the 3 night run was meeting all three members after the 5/24/84 show and having them sign the back of my GUP album. unfortunately, i had to sell the album a few years ago.

No offense, Zumbi, but who are you to question someone else's financial circumstances?
