Rush kicks Shania Twain's arse easily. Not bad for a band that has no hits. :D

New Kids on the Block are on the list too? WTF!!! They're still touring? Seriously?
Hell the Beach Boys are on that list

There's a man out here my husband once met who lives in Sand Point, Idaho.  He told my husband he had been a promoter in the NYC area and handled all the big names.  

You can't trust anyone who lives in north Idaho, they're like their own separate state of weirdos up there.  Beautiful area though.

You don't have to tell me.  Weirdos abound out here.  A more amoral bunch I've never encountered.  I'm convinced that whoever wrote the lyrics to Back Stabbers lived here.

Travel more. The Northwest is one of the tamest cultures on the planet.

I bet a show like Tulsa barely saw any profit for them.

The band hasn't been reliant on ticket sales for decades.
They get a guarantee from the promoter.

I believe Madison Square Garden was a sellout too. And several other venues. Numbers are not just up yet.

If you think about it, how many bands/artists (besides country shit) can sell out venues like that year-in-year out... everywhere around the US?

Of course U2, AC/DC, DMB, Springsteen, Stones, Van Halen, Fleetwood Mac and the other old farts... but besides them? Not so many. New bands and teen idols come and go... only these old guys are guaranteed draws.

2010 Rush ranked nicely among the top grossing acts (per gig)

The Beach Boys died with Carl Wilson. I have little interest in watching Mike Love, that talentless royalty-stealing hack, gigging with a surf band with Bruce Johnston's animated corpse in tow for "legitimacy".

Back to attendance numbers... from what I heard, most shows sold out.  Those that did not, were 95% capacity.

Montreal was packed to the ceiling.

I think they are going to make an album first and then tour it if they are going to tour again, which I hope they do and I don't see why not. Anyways Philly has always been one of the biggest supporters of the band since the 70s, so of course they're gonna sell out there.

If they're not going to play live again there's almost no way they'd make an album. Lots of work and almost no money. And Clockwork Angels is the perfect exit.

Lots of people say that very thing about their city. Rush just sells well almost everywhere.

But they want to tour and write music, the problem is they are not physically able to go out on the road for that long anymore. Going into the studio and making music isn't that physically demanding, and their fanbase is bigger than ever.

Neil wants to tour?

The studio takes a ton of crafting and planning - and for what? Albums don't sell. They MIGHT make as much as in playing one night live by making one album that takes months.

I think the only way we see them again is some bizarre and unfortunate financial catastrophe OR Neil decides he's restless and up for hitting the road.

I'll be generous and call it a 10% chance.

You are 100% correct... We can all thank the Internet for lack of album sales these days.   This is why bands tour SO much and for higher ticket prices... they have to.  

Personally, I like the "old days" better.  Almost all of Rush's albums went platinum up until Vapour Trails.  That's when the Internet started to explode.
