Not nearly enough.

Did they get around to replacing that drummer dude yet?

I used to keep track of it, then I lost it, I am sure there were more than the ones I wrote down, the weird part is when you attend more than 2 cities in one tour, then you think you recall something, or someone, or a playlist, or hotel, than is gone.

I can die in peace now as I got to see live my favorite songs:

SUBDIVISIONS
JACOBS
DISTANT EARLY WARNING
VITAL SIGNS
LA VILLA
2112 (and see the professor beat the crap out of those drums on grand finale! PRICELESS)
RED SECTOR A
MANHATTAN PROJECT
THE GARDEN
LAKESIDE PARK
THE SPIRIT OF RADIO
LIMELIGHT
GHOST OF A CHANCE
TIME STAND STILL
EARTHSHINE
GHOST RIDER
TERRITORIES
DREAMLINE
ANIMATE
THE TREES
PASSAGE TO BANGKOK
NATURAL SCIENCE
ANALOG KID
STICK IT OUT
PRESTO
BETWEEN THE WHEELS
LEAVE THAT THING ALONE
RESIST
CROSSROADS
BY TOR & SNOW DOG

28 shows. Bummed that I couldn't make it to 30.

My first was the p/g tour in September 1984 at MSG. My last was R40, also at MSG. Seems fitting.

My last 2 shows were Newark and MSG on that tour. So got to see the slightly different setlists, but also Losing It with John Dinklage both nights.  Couldn't ask for more than that.

I never saw Rush live. I was afraid to ruin the mystique.

3.  Sadly I didn't get into Rush until late (in the late 80's and I was well past 40.)  So much more the regret.

I saw them on every tour from Power Windows through Snakes and Arrows. (was R40 before or after S&A?)  I saw them on R30 but not R40.  I saw them multiple times on most of those tours.  All told it was probably about 35 times though I never really counted.

Only twice. First Permanent Waves tour in 1980 (Manchester Apollo), then 33 years later Clockwork Angels in 2013 (Manchester Arena). I did fall out out of love though around when Power Windows came out.

Only a few. Or as i call it "NOT NEARLY ENOUGH." But when you're my age, you wish you could have seen a lot more bands. I'm just happy i got to see them. I just wish I had been born much earlier in their career.

I've seen them 4 times:

Test for Echo Tour - 1996
Vapor Trails Tour - 2002
R30 Tour - 2004
Snakes and Arrows Tour - 2007

As you can see by this list, I didn't get to see them until later in their career and later in my life.  I've been a hard core fan since 17 years old, I'm 48 now.  Unfortunately, I never had the money to really travel to go see them.  I was 26 when I first saw them in Philadelphia and the other 3 were in my home town, Scranton PA.  

Believe me, I would have loved to seen some of those earlier shows, but at least I saw what I saw!
