I came to Rush late, 2007, but I had 8 wonderful years to make up for the lost time and enjoy what I'd missed out on for all those years; the majesty that was Rush live :wub: :rush:

That's fantastic, though.

I only notched eight of them in 25 years, 1990-2015- including exactly zero shows after 1994, until 'coming back' to live Rush in 2013.

I really wish I had done more, now. But I'm grateful for every one of them that I did see.

I've been to every Rush show since 1985. More than 30 years later, I saw them at R-40. It was memorable, as I first saw them at the Forum in Inglewood and bookend their career at the Forum.

I only saw the set on the DVD, but it was pretty cool.

Apparently, Rush were prepared to play an encore, but the emcee came out after they played and basically said, "ok, now it's time to move on" so they opted not to go back out.

I was in a grocery store here in Bridgewater, Nova Scotia last week... I saw a dude with an R40 T shirt, so I just had to ask him... how many shows?  206, he told me.  TWO HUNDRED AND SIX!  Turned out he was from Michigan.  And, I thought I was cool, having seen 28 since 1976...

Only four shows. I've always liked them a lot but for some reason just didn't see them live many times. My first show was in 87 then didn't see them again for twenty years(07)then saw them again the following year in 08 and then on their last and presumably final tour in 2015.

None. I have never and will never be at a single RUSH concert. Unless they decide to perform on Stephen Colbert and my family gets tickets. LOL
