I did a quick google and found this link from when I Love You Man was filmed...
But, as Rush bass player Geddy Lee told I Love You, Man director John Hamburg, women sightings are rare at a Rush gig.
"Geddy Lee told me they call them `Geddycorns.' Women at Rush concerts are mythical and seldom seen."
Seems Rudd is a mega-fan himself.
"He was as excited as a 12-year-old girl meeting the Jonas Brothers," quipped Segel.

The Geddycorn is a female Rush fan, who enjoys Rush on their own... not dragged in by a brother or boyfriend.
Geddycorns have existed from the very start of Rush, though they were much rarer in those early days...
One of the first Geddycorns was Donna Halper, who gave the band great air-time on WMMS in Cleveland. She recognized the awesomeness and shared it with the world.
But Rush was seen as a "guy band", and without a significant number (or any, lol) love songs to make the chicks swoon, it was assumed that girls just wouldn't dig Rush.
And for a time, many girls didn't really. They were dragged to shows by brothers or boyfriends. But even in those early days, the Geddycorn existed, though their majesty had not yet been recognized. The presence of a female at a Rush show was thought to be strictly because of a male bringing them along.
Some of the girls that were dragged to a show, or otherwise made to listen, became Rush fans, of course. And for a time, it was assumed that any girl that liked Rush, got into them because of a male influence. Some of these might be thought of as pseudo-Geddycorns, as they did not begin willingly. Only gradually coming around after repeated exposure.
Some are actual Geddycorns, digging the band right away, they just hadn't heard them on the radio or whatever. Once exposed to the music, their true Geddycorn nature shone forth. Brothers learned that their Geddfycorn sisters were cool, boyfriends found a deeper love for their Geddycorn girlfriends.
Other Geddycorns sprang up spontaneously, with no guy in their life saying "Hey, check out this band" or "Sweetie, have you heard this song? You'll love it". They happened upon Rush by chance, and instantly felt that spark. These were the rarest of Geddycorns, as, for a long while, Rush just didn't get the air-time they deserved. It was hard for the average girl to hear a Rush song out of the blue. (but we do exist!)
The origin of the term Geddycorn, I do not know. But meaning is clear... we are girls who like Rush because we like Rush. And we are awesome!

Now I'm wondering am I the only Dutch Geddycorn here on the forum?
