I would like to hear what you remember about the concert(s) and the songs they did, especially Xanadu and The Weapon.  :)

I didn't get on board (live show wise) until the Hemispheres tour. I of course attended the Signals tour also. Don't remember a thing from either of them in any detail to be honest. I remember the venues and thats about it.... :( :codger:

Indeed. I attended many shows back then and most of them are just a blur at this point. I know who, where and how many times I saw each band and am proud of the shows I attended but the details are mostly long lost....

Follow this link to Cygnus x-1 site http://www.cygnus-x1...sts.php#SIGNALS
Shirt answer is, yes they played the weapon on the actual tour but not the warm up tour

That is true in my case. Parents were still in elementary school during AFTK I believe.

That Cygnus site is a treasure trove of info.  You can find out where rush was and what they played on any date they ever played professionally.

Yes, it is a treasure trove of info.  So is the RushVault.  

But I wanted to hear from those who were actually at the concerts what they remember.  If anything.  I don't remember much myself from any concerts I went to forty/thirty years ago.  Had I known I would regret not remembering one day, I would have taken pictures during and written up accounts after every concert.  :lol:   Bad thing about being young is that you think it will last forever.  :cool:
