Impressive detail.  I figured changing the name of the city would be no big deal.  But also including unique slogans, population, and visual icons is above and beyond the call of duty.  Can only mean one thing...

Rush loves us. Sniff  They really love us.

Getting overly nerdy here, just counting the shows I attended, the populations were:

Tulsa 900K
Lincoln 270K
Dallas 1.2M

The latter two are the real city populations.  The Tulsa one is the whole metropolitan area.  The actual city population is just shy of 400K.

C'mon Rush, be consistent with your data!!!! :lol:

Houston could've gotten something more clever than "The Capital Of Air Conditioning".  

Something space related, like 'Houston - Aim For The Stars'?

Or how about 'Houston - Do We Have A Problem?'

Yeah, but it'd be hard to come up with something more true!

Twin Cities: Two Is Better Than One
St. Louis: Go Cards Go

Eeek, I have stuff to do but I like puzzles and worked at a library answering questions for many years :)
Lincoln- I got nuthin'
St. Paul-   North St. Paul is the home of the world's largest concrete snowman- 44 feet tall!!  http://highwayhighli...rth-st-paul-mn/
St. Louis- There are a number of huge sculptures in, on and around the City Museum, including a school bus on the roof.   http://www.interesti..._Dotree_39.html
Austin- I didn't see the video, was it a water tower or a tall light tower?  A friend who lives there says Austin is known for both.  The light towers are antique lighting towers from the 1890's that are still there and are called moonlight towers.  Then there are just jokes that Austin has a LOT of ugly water towers because Texas is dry and Austin is flat and so the towers are needed for providing city water with any pressure.

Locals, please let me know if I called any of these wrong :P
I'm interested in hearing what they put up for Tampa tonight!  My sister lives there (not a Rush fan, some things are not understandable, haha)

Looks like a water tower for sure; must be the jokes my friend said that there are way more than there used to be and they are ugly!  I'm still trying to figure out why poor Alex comes into town on crutches!!??!!

They may have something for the Bills in the video but I'm not sure they saying will be about them. The falls is pointless because it's not in Buffalo. It's in another city/country 30 minutes north of us. Only part of Niagara falls is in the US. The majority of it and the better part of it, is on the Canadian side.
