Honestly, I didn't know it was going to cause that
much of a kerfuffle...I don't typically rock the boats of other Rush fans, saying provocative things...
...unless said other Rush fans are having nasty things to say about...oh, Hold Your Fire, for example. If that be the case, then all bets are off!
They are very serious about spoilers J
BTW, intended to mention some of the stats from CA tour, not have a massive spoiler chat.
Two NYC shows on the first CA leg, NJ did great, Brooklyn not as well. I couldn't find Cincy on this CA leg, but did find Columbus, which did 8611. The promoter also plays with capacities alot on this tour. an NHL arena, even with backstage seats closed off, holds more than 10,204. Barclays curtained some sections, and did not include those seats in the capacity number.
Even with the small Brooklyn crowd, the two NYC shows netted close to $2 million. R40 is going to have some monster gross sales. Imagine if they were able to price tickets to market value.
Five NYC shows will fund a mini residency in London. 2017 at an arena near few.
