Just 1 in Amsterdam on their current tour. I live in Denmark, and I could have seen them in Sweden on their Time Machine tour in 2011, but that wasn't gonna happen.

I think it must have showed that it was a first for me, because some where looking at me with a smile and a look in their eyes saying "I remember my first Rush show". Either that or they were trying to hit on me, haha ;-)

For me 48 since 1984 Grace Under Pressure Tour of which I saw 3 times. It could be 47 cause my memory these days is getting real bad.....I've found stubs where I can't recall ever going to that show or state. My average for each tour around 5-6. VT was the most for a tour 8.....CA Tour so far 5 in 3 states.

Only one other band I've seen more times probably twice my RUSH total and the only one traveled outside of this country to see multiple times.

Cincinnati will be my 10th , 81,82,84,02,04,07,08,10,12. Had a couple kids one in '85 and one in'94 . Honestly I only went to a handful of shows during those years, I really lost interest in music during the hair metal - grunge period.

Wow.  range thus far is 0-144 (unless too many to count is more).  But there are a few in the 140's!!!  And one projected into the 150's by the end of the CA tour.  Other 140's, are you going to let the 150's beat you?

How about an award for the longest time between shows?

Went to the April 20, 1980 show in Madison, WI at the Dane County Coliseum for the Permanent Waves tour.

Then had 3 kids and lots of living - but kept listening and buying albums!

Now going to July 4, 2013 show in Milwaukee, WI at the Summerfest Marcus Amphitheater with my 18 year old son.

Can't wait to see them again - they represent all that is good with being a musician with integrity, work ethic, and always trying to provide the best entertainment they can for the fans!

Rush Rocks!!

One, 23.11.12, Las Vegas. Took over 32 years to get there, 6700 miles from New Zealand. Most likely first and last, best concert experience of my life!

I'm a better late then never concert attendee!  Been a die-hard fan since 1980 (hence my ID), but due to finances & constantly moving with my hubby's jobs never got settled until now.   My six shows are all from this CA tour alone; 2 shows during 2012 leg; Indy & Chicago, 4 upcoming shows on 2013 leg:  Hershey, Chicago, Grand Rapids & Milwaukee!  I loved the Rush synth period so this tour really rocks.
