Not sure about the exclusive TS and SOL set list but man I admire your passion. Hope they extend the tour to a city near you!

I kid of course, none of us would enjoy that as much as we are this tour. Hope they extend it, but they aren't going to come to Australia anyway, so it wouldn't really matter much

"putting out a DVD would remove the incentive for some to see the show if they can just buy the DVD"  Are you serious!  No way can a DVD replace the experience of seeing them live if at all possible.

I don't know about the release of the live CD or DVD but I do think if a second leg is coming it would be spring of 2016...that is the way it has gone in the past.

They wouldn't add leg 2 after they put out the live album. They'd lose money if they did that.

Someone pointed out SnA did exactly that, tour, live album/DVD, tour leg 2. If they would add a second leg (pigs fly tour?) they'd hold off on the blue ray. As far as losing money,  R40 grossed $24 million on their first 22 shows, and that's with an average ticket price of $85. I've been looking up and down secondary (and ticketmaster sites), nothing online for anything close to $85 on the eastern part of the tour.

My point is, this tour is in the stratosphere monetarily for Rush, and the tickets, if the $85 average is correct, were way underpriced, according to the resale market, where lower bowls were minimum $300 on the resale market.


Actually, they did not release the Snakes And Arrows DVD before the tour was over.  They released the live audio recording after the first leg, but the DVD did not come out until after the second.

you are correct, because the DVD included tunes recorded on the 2nd leg.

I take it all back.

Of course there's going to be a second leg.

And a European and South American leg.

And obviously they're going to circle around for Cleveland.

On a few select dates, Neil will be taking over guitar duties, Ged will don his DJ gear and spin house dubs from a Mac turntable while Alex plays bongos, forging a cutting edge New Millennium EDM-folk-Dixie fusion edition of Countdown.

Fear not, selfless fanboys. Your greatest hopes will soon be rewarded.

I live in Edinburgh, and you can cross that right out. People have been talking about building a decent 10-12000 seater indoor arena here for decades and it's never happened, they've handed that gig to Glasgow, 50 miles to the west. They have a nice new 12.500 seat arena next to the old SSEC hall 4, where Rush have played many times. If Scotland is on Rush's radar for this tour-and I've got every digit on my body crossed that is, me and thousands of other Scots-the the Hydro Arena, as it's called, will be the place they'll play.

Please make it so...

I went to Glasgow SECC for my only TM tour date (if I remember correctly I chose that destination because it was on saturday and I had to get a flight to see at least one date anyway)
I know all the arena shows in Scotland are held on Clyde shores but I added Edinburgh in my list cos I remember an Edinburgh Playhouse bootleg during Signals tour.
Say 'Hi' to Auld Reekie for me; it's one of my favourite places. Slainte!

:lol: :lol: :lol:

I'd love to see Ged as DJ :7up: I think he would be a great DJ. He can easily fit in with the rest of the superstar DJs. I can already see him with a cool pair of headphones wrapped around his neck doing his thing :lol: He can wear his current stage outfit(s) for those DJ gigs as well! :D

And as for Alex: your EDM prediction actually seems correct. He's told Eddie Trunk that he's (maybe) doing some work for an EDM artist... The fact that his son is into making EDM (trance) makes it almost believable  :lol: :lol: :lol:

Hi to you as well geezer!

But that Signals show wasn't from the Playhouse theatre (nice old Victorian theatre, about 3000 capacity, right in the city centre), but would have been one of two shows in May 1983, at the Royal Highland Exhibition Hall, at Ingliston, which is out to the west of the city, near the airport. Just a glorified shed really, even worse than hall 4 at the SSEC Glasgow-and that's saying something. :codger:

This is such a great Tour. I think its the Tour most RUSH fans have been waiting for. I believe it deserves a second leg. I think it will happen but not in the usual way. I think they will take the rest of the Winter off. Release the live DVD/CD around the holidays then Announce the 2nd leg of the Tour in support of the live album. Then start touring again in April of 2016. I think RUSH fans everywhere deserve to see this tour. Anyway those are my thoughts on it. What do you guys think about it?

You're right about the venue! My memory starts failing but at the moment I can still use the excuse of the many bootlegs I have seen thru the years!
P.S.: I was at the Playhouse in 1987 for three Marillion shows.

No second leg for R40.

Perhaps a one-off in Toronto, LA or NY in a couple years.

As silly as this will sound to some, I will ask it anyway.

Any chance Neil is actually having a good time this tour and will reconsider his earlier decision?
