A friend of mine heard rumblings of a small handful of September European dates followed by a show at Radio City in NYC.

If they were playing Europe and Radio City in September, i'm pretty sure the shows would have been announced by now. Financially, they wouldn't make any money taking their show over to Europe for only a handful of dates. Seems very unlikely to me.

It would have to be late next summer at the earliest, with a scaled back production. They could do a mini run in London and Germany to keep travel costs down, then bang out 4 big shows in NY and LA to nail down some profit.
Why not just add a few cities that were important to their early success at the end of this tour like Cleveland and Pittsburgh

If scaled back, would need multi dates per venue to keep travel costs down and easier on the band. Say two shows in Cleveland.  Need 2 or 3 dates in NY and LA each to bang out some profit. The larger the show count, the unlikelier the dream.

Lifeson did cite Gilmour's most recent 18 show mini tour as example. Gilmour did play many venues smaller than arenas if I recall correctly, so there's a way to do it financially. If they are healthy, there is some hope.

I wish they'd add a date in Pittsburgh so I could see them again and not have so far to drive.

My vote is yes!  Maybe driven by hope, but I could imagine them extending this tour in the fall to Europe, then coming back to the states and hitting off the beaten path markets like they did with CA (Grand Rapids Mich, for example).

Wishful thinking maybe, but the machine is up and running, and running quite well I might add...  Why not?

Here's what I think could happen:

Maybe a few South American shows this fall, followed by Europe and some more North American dates starting late Spring.

And then that's it. No more R40 tour, and maybe no more Rush.

if the $$$ are right, I could see them adding some dates.  If they are in touring mode anyway and someone dangles another couple million in front of them, I think they'll bite.

Despite all their ailments I believe that the guys just don't want to be away from home for huge chunks of time. Neil has a young kid and Alex has grandkids, and they just want to be there. Its one thing to say you just want to do a small number of dates but the huge production costs don't make short tours feasible. I'm pretty certain that the end of this tour does not mean the end of the band as a live act, but anything in the future will be a more stripped down tour, at a handful of stops.

In Chicago this morning on The Drive 97.1, Dan McNeil ( A big Rush fan) mentioned Rush might add dates at the end of the tour. He was PISSED that he had to attend The Drive's 14th Birthday Bash concert Friday Night and missed the Rush Concert. The Free concert was Heart and Dennis DeYoung, which is actually a Great double Bill. But it's Not RUSH!

Oh, I can imagine. I really want to see Heart myself but do not put them up against Rush, please!

My gut tells me no, this is not the last time we'll see them live. But alas, it is as much wishful thinking as the next person.
:huh:

I know I WANT to see another show - I'm considering changing Vacation plans at this point.... is this a problem you think?

I used to be positive that they wouldn't, and now I am not so sure.

If this tour goes really well, and they are having a good time, and they all feel up to it, they just might add more shows.

Maybe the Rolling Stone cover will shame them into doing more cities.  :lol: :lol: :lol:

Occam^s razor, the simplest hypothesis is most likely true . They have never said they are done playing live, they have said its their last big tour and they are slowing down dramatically. They have spoken a lot about recording again and playing residencies. Ged seems to like the phrase "one-off shows." Although it would never be a farewell concert ;).

@RUSH_Roadtrips Is this providing hope for European fans, or Stateside fans? Either way, would be great news. Tour too good to end so soon

Wishful thinking. It's nice. But not realistic.

All things come to pass.

I wouldn't be surprised if they add approx. 15 dates sometime between late September and mid November given their comments in the RS article about it being a little easier than they thought. The announcement would have to come in the next couple of weeks though.

Someone in another thread said that he spoke to someone on Rush's staff, and said that a European tour and another U.S. Tour is in the works....I'd love to see it...and will believe it when I see tickets offered....

My guess is they are waiting for this 2nd leg of dates to end which is next week. If they do plan another leg I think we could hear something real soon. They probably wanted to wait to add Cleveland, Milwaukee & Indy until after the Chicago, Columbus and Buffalo shows.

None of those options are gonna happen, guys.

The Forum date is the last we'll hear from them for a while.

It is far more likely that you'll see a Geddy solo album before anything else Rush-related after August 1st. Except for the inevitable R40 DVD, of course.
