Since there is such an overwhelming demand for tickets at almost every show so far and most are selling out easily, do you think Rush will add more dates for cities like Cleveland and Pittsburgh.  What others cities should be added?  Sorry in advance, if this was asked before.

I can't believe I'm even on this section of the Rush Forum.

Get your ass to the LA Forum.  That will be IT!

Of my 16 or so Rush shows I've seen (every tour since Signals)....14 of them were in Pittsburgh....can't see them leaving Pgh and Clev out entirely......but who knows?....since moving to GA my last 2 have been in ATL....

I wish they'd add a date in Pittsburgh so I could see them again and not have so far to drive.
You sound like their #1 fan, so I'm sure you'll do whatever it takes to see them.

Extremely unlikely dates will be added for this tour. Although they could play limited dates in future years as they have explicitly said they are not retiring, it is probable they never play "in a city near you" again, so that could involve airfare, hotel, enormous ticket prices, etc.

I've kind of accepted they're not coming back to England.  In all those recent Classic Rock and other magazine interviews, Geddy pretty much admits Neil doesn't want more shows after these dates are over.  If it happens and they do tour here then great but its looking very unlikely now.  :(

I say after this tour is over, and they take a year or two off, they will do a few one-offs like Geddy says. I'm sure they will do something for Cleveland. Maybe an album, too. I guess we'll see in a few months after the tour (and their touring years?) is over.

I talked to Howard U. In Atlanta. He said what is scheduled is it. No more dates will be added anywhere including Europe. I hope they do add more. They missed Nashville and Charlotte and that seems strange.

This is it. Make peace with it. It's all good. They've given more than most bands do.

Could that be because it was a hastily put together tou,r and Neilm, or whoever, insisted they tour THIS summer so the venues in Nashville, Charlotte and some other major cities weren't available?

I'm not saying this is right, but it's just a thought that crossed my mind.

I doubt that would be the strategy.  My feeling is that there was a limited number of shows they wanted to do and the rest is up to the promoters to figure out where they would be.  Alex talks in an interview before the tour started of trying to do something for Cleveland, as it turned out it didn't work in the plans.  I'm still hanging on to hope that a few more dates in N. America will be added but it's getting less likely now at this late time in the schedule.

There won't be any added dates, guys and gals.

Not only is it too late to book venues for the fall, it's not what Neil agreed to do.

Certain markets had to be skipped. It's pretty much a miracle we are getting what we're getting .

Hmmm...just speculation here...but seeing that you seem to KNOW what is EXACTLY going to happen, and have been pretty adamant about this topic, (and you seem to know what Neil has agreed upon)  AND your screen name is "Bard"  (which was Shakespeare's nickname)

YOU'RE NEIL!!!!!  :Neil:

What a bittersweet year this is turning out to be for me being a huge Rush and Yes fan. Rush is (practically) saying farewell to touring. And with Chris Squire passing away yesterday... I'm so sad right now... I really hope the guys will have a change of heart and come over to Europe to bid us adieu over here as well...

During the planning stages, King Neil gave the OK for only a certain number of shows - take it or leave it, it didn't really matter to him. That number will NOT change and I seriously doubt that any future "one off" shows will take place either. He has been ready to tap out for years now and his dream is finally coming to fruition. See 'em now or never see 'em again...

What he said. One-off gigs are only a possibility, def not a probability.

This tour is the last run. It's been a good run. Far better than most bands. Appreciate it for what it is.
