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"

2 more tours after CA is not impossible.  Especially considering they are still having so much fun, we are still going, they still have so much creativity, and they can still play for 3 hours, at that intensity, while jumping around like teenagers.

15 or 16. First show was Permanent Waves tour at the Spectrum. Last show was Time Machine tour in Greensboro. Skipping them this time because neither me or my wife particularly care about the setlist.

How many shows have you all been to?  Starting on which tour?  And how many will it be by the end of the CA tour?

BIG FAT O, that's how many.  The closest I got to a show was R30 in London and LA last year, both collapsed due to family issues.  I've given up any remote hope of ever seeing my favourite band play live down under.  Enjoy your shows.

that stinks!  so sorry to hear that.

Thanks.

Two.

1. Time Machine Tour—New York, NY—April 10, 2011—I was taken by complete surprise.  I was 12 at the time and had just gotten into Rush a year before.  My dad told me he wanted to head to New York City and I asked him why.  I was clueless until we walked up to Madison Square Garden and I saw a poster for Rush playing that evening.  Great show, best night of my life.

2.  Clockwork Angels Tour—Newark, NJ—October 20, 2012—I knew about the show, but I vowed not to preview the setlist and was surprised to hear "The Pass" and "Red Sector A."  Loved the strings, and I am still watching YouTube videos from that concert.

Unfortunately, I probably won't be seeing them this leg.  While it is a bit disappointing (especially since they're in Atlantic City tonight), I understand and am hoping to see them whenever their next tour is…even if it isn't for a few years.

Likewise, 3 and soon to be 4.

It really should be more like 7 for me.... if you notice my signature, there's a 15 year gap between my first show and my second. I had some pretty bad luck.... I missed the Counterparts tour because I was on spring break, the T4E tour didn't come within 300 miles of where I lived (and at that time, I was 19 and in college so I couldn't just drive to one), and then of course they went on a five year hiatus.

Then when they started touring again, I was living in Australia. Fortunately I've made up for lost time since then. I flew over to Colorado for one show, then moved here and saw another one, and now I've got one coming up on August 2.

I hear that.  I don't think it is possible to see "enough" shows.

This Saturday in Atlantic City will be my 24th show.  First show was back in 1996 on the Power Windows Tour.  I hope I get to see them twice more this leg, Hershey & Saratoga...but we shall see...
I think you meant 1986.

Somewhere between 50 and 60. First was December of 1974 at the Cleveland Agora. I was 14. That was a long time ago!

3 shows: Time Machine Tour in Camden & Clockwork Angels in Philadelphia and Atlantic City.

I would have seen more if I was born earlier! For some stupid reason, checking to see if Rush actually toured didn't occur to me until I was about 16; really kicking myself on that one. :rage:

I can't wait to see what they'll do after this tour! :D

Still a newb.

I think I'm up to 40 now since 1986. Every US leg since.
.
Record is 8 on the Vapor Trails Tour

Decided to bag AC at the last minute and be content with Hershey.
