17. I'll never see the 18th.  :(
It’s like watching Hand of God for the first time then learning you’ll see no more.

I’ve seen ever tour from the Signals tour to R40*. Signals to T4E was always multiple venues like the Meadowlands, Garden, PNC or Jones Beach. When VT came out I was adulting so one show per tour, although I caught a second R40 show.

That would be none.  Grew up poor in an isolated place that ruled out concerts, became an adult and moved out into the world, discovered I had an auditory processing disorder and a fear of crowds.  I'm totally okay with sticking to recorded music only.

It's cool that you know yourself and what you would enjoy!  I am in the zero concert club too for a couple of reasons, part of it was living out west in a small town/no money also.

5 or 6. Had i really known about them starting from high school, I would have seen them many many more times, possibly been a Rushhead, earned my Masters in Rushian, I've said this before  - I believe my life would have turned out differently.

I've been to six different Rush Tour concerts.  My first one was their "Grace Under Pressure Tour" in Toronto at Maple Leaf Gardens in Sept. 1984.  My second one was their "Power Windows Tour" in Toronto at Maple Leaf Gardens in Mar. 1986.  My third one was their "Roll the Bones Tour" in Vancouver at Pacific Coliseum in Feb. 1992.  My fourth one was their "Test For Echo Tour" in Vancouver at General Motors Place in May 1997.  My fifth one was their "Clockwork Angels Tour" in Vancouver at Rogers Arena in July 2013.  My sixth one was their "R40 Live 40th Anniversary Tour" in Vancouver at Rogers Arena in July 2015.

Permanent, there have been live tours of theirs available on d.v.d., blu-ray, and on-line to watch, and enjoy, too,

Every tour since MP save for R30. But I wasn't really a multi show guy so would only see them once on a tour exceptions being the G/P and S&A tours. Saw 2 shows in 1984 and 3 in 2007

Taurus, If you don't mind sharing by saying, and posting, do you remember where you saw them?

I used to think I was hard core, seeing 28 shows since 1976.  Then, I ran into this dude at the airport in Minneapolis who was wearing a Rush T shirt.  We started chatting and he told me had seen 278 shows. And, the way he was talking, I believed him.  THAT is hard-core.  28 shows is soft-core.

While I would have welcomed seeing Rush as many times as possible, it would have been too disruptive to see the band that many times. I wouldn't have been able to afford that many shows and I don't know how I could have made the time. The only thing I really wish is to have been old enough to see them on earlier tours. I was 15 when I saw them for the first time on the MP tour but was already a fan for 3-4 years so seeing a PeW or Hemispheres tour would have been mind blowing.
