Don't you think we should do something special for all those who provided the R40 shows for all of us who couldn't be at the concert?

What would we have done without them?  They went to a concert, and made sure all of us went too!

They are a generous breed.  My heartfelt thanks to all of them!  Sometimes they were a little abused ("he's shaking it so much I'm going to have a seizure," "I wish he'd shut up" etc.) but I hope they know that we appreciated their efforts.

I guess that's what all the hearts were for.  Here's a few more:  :heart: :heart: :heart: :heart: :heart: :heart:

Yep, thanks to several awesome scopers I was able to watch the whole Toronto (Friday) show / the second part of the San Jose show / the whole Las Vegas show / the second part of the Irvine show / the whole LA show.

:heart: & :cheers:  to all of them!

Neither have I, but I am one of a handful of people left in the world who still have dial up.  If you have high speed, what's your excuse?  :cool:

I saw the beginning of the first few but that was about it. It looked like good fun reading through parts of the threads the day after. Whomever did the periscope at the shows does deserve credit for sure... :cheers:

Does anyone follow Bob on twitter? If he is not a member, we should get him to join TRF, and his lady friend as well.

Oh, those closeups ( not of Rush). Zoom in a little more Bob! Oh my!!

With all the things the internet can do now, I have no idea how I could handle dial up today. It was fine back in the 90s when the internet was still new but I didn't even know it was still offered until you joined here. My respect goes out to you because I can't imagine the patience it takes to still use dial up today and all the internet limitations you must have.

I don't remember any names but I would like to give a big thank you out to all who periscoped the Rush shows on this tour. But just to the ones who did a whole show or most of it. All you teases who would drop in and out and only did a few songs can take a hike ;) Watching opening night as the setlist unfolded live was just magical. Everyone, including me, freaking out as the second half of the set went on was probably my favorite experience ever on this site.

Well... It all started with Bob, and his girlfriend... La dancerista!.... I missed the last show, saw only a few songs from the majority of the last leg, but if Bob had an equal, it was Cactus Pete, who probably had to be nailed to a couple 2X4s to finish the Vancouver show... Thankfully, he appeared in the comments of a later feed on Periscope, so he did make it home OK... It was a great summer periscoping and joking around with all of you, especially the regulars, Tombstone, Rushbass, Eaglemoon, Gabriel, Toymaker and every one else who's name I forget! Let's hope we'll get to do it all agaiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiinnnnnnnnnnn!!!!!! :)

:hug2:

That is very nice of you to say.

This is the way I look at it.  These people spent hundreds of dollars to go to a Rush concert so they could sit there holding their arms up and a whatever in their hands so others could watch the concert too.  That was very selfless of them, even though some of them got a little carried away at times.  :unsure:   It must have been a bother to do.  A lot easier to just sit there and watch.  I don't know that I would have, if I could, done it myself unless I had gone to more than one concert.  I would not have scoped a concert if I was only going to one, that's for sure.

But I really do think it was wonderful that anyone that was able could actually watch a live concert on their computer and it was on account of these selfless souls.

The threads were a lot of fun too.  Even in Catherine punked out of them early in the tour.  :lol:  I wonder what we did..... :unsure: .

It's true he did.  Even if you couldn't watch, just being on one of those threads was a lot of fun.  

I hope we will be able to have an experience like that again on here.

The good humor and camaraderie was just wonderful. Getting to know folks that I'd never otherwise know was fantastic.

On top of that...seeing Rush play basically for every show...well.
