Nine.  My first show was the T4E tour at the Omni in Atlanta in '96.  Then I had a bit of a dry spell (not intentional...it just worked out that way) and didn't get to see them again until Jacksonville in '08.  But I've been making up for lost time ever since.

Lost count actually.  
Lost stubs from Vapor Trails going back to the beginning.
However each show feels like my first and that is a great feeling.

I went to show number 21 last year, which made it 21 in '12 (kind of appropriate :lol:).

Today is the 30th anniversary of the first Rush show I ever went to :)

I think around 40.  I have lost count it might be more.  Not bad considering my first tour was Presto.   I've seen rush 3 times in 4 days during the Counterparts tour.

8 (Signals, GUP, Vapor Trails, S&A (3 times), Time Machine and CA).  The break between GUP and Vapor Trails was largely due to me losing interest in the band after HYF was released.  They really lost me on that one.  Only Counterparts was of mild interest for me thereafter until Vapor Trails came out and I fell in love with the band again.

Wow, 143 I'm impressed.
There's a pre show meetup of the German Rush Forum at the Fischmarkt am Leystapel (2 km from Lanxess Arena, left side of the Rhine). We'll be there from 2pm. In case if you want to join us?

Wantagh will be my sixth. If I had been born earlier, this would be a very different number... :eyeroll:

So jealous of the people who've seen 100+ shows.

This has likely been posted before, but since they are touring again (yay!!!!) the numbers keep changing.

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?

I've been to 31 since 1979, and will see 3 more in one week between June 30 (Grand Rapids) and July 6 (Hamilton, ONT, Canadia)....  I have a dream of seeing my 40th show during R40... Gents, let's get those 2014 show dates in the works, shall we?  Rock on!
