Watching periscope feeds with everyone was a once in a lifetime experience. So much fun sharing it with everyone on top of being able to see the concerts live  like that. Next best thing to actually being there. I do feel sorry for anyone who missed it because it's been the highlight of my time here I would say that for sure.
Even with the "whack-a-mole" frustrations on slow nights, the company was always good.  :)
That's what made it even more special. The company was wonderful, even if we agreed to disagree

Many many thanks to all the 'scopers. I'm still a bit of a newbie here on TRF but being able to share the periscoping experience with you all was special. And given it may very well be the last tour to be able to see all those shows was awesome. Especially the last show, I'm on the east coast so it was a late, late night but oh so worth it.

I'm sure it's not a coincidence that some of those people look familiar in that picture.

Thanks as well.  This was so much fun.  I wish I could have joined in more.  Everyone was so funny and entertaining.

Bravo, brava! Scoping Rush shows was the best thing about my summer (besides going to see the band, of course)! Thanks to all who participated. My first scope was Cactus Pete (Calgary, I think?), and I watched almost every scope from that point to the end of the tour. Man, I must have seen the show ten times? That is truly amazing.

Big Thanks to all the scopers, even the ones who cut out mid-song. There were only 2 nights that I didn't see at least part of the show on periscope, and those were the 2 I was at live.

Quite a phenomenon, and a remarkable leap forward in terms of being able to join together around an event.  The last couple of RUSH shows I enjoyed surfing the Periscope Universe looking for "opening acts".  Ended up with U2 @ MSG NY, Phish, and a horrible Metallica cover from some guy's garage.  Not to mention the various wedding receptions...  :D

In all seriousness, it was great fun and I appreciate you all for taking time to join in.  Let's be sure to thank our families for putting up with it!  Now...i anyone can schedule a Periscope feed for a RUSH cover band, I'm in!  :P

Thanks to the scopers.
Let's give a big thank you to Periscope who's interest exploded with Press the Monday(May 4)  after the Mayweather Pacquiao fight.
That fight took place May 2, Rush began their tour May 8, 6 days later. Without that fight and that press, we would have had very, very few of these if any.
Periscope reported over 1 million downloads the week AFTER the fight. Right into OUR wheelhouse.
We were very lucky. And :cheerleader: :cheers: :cosmo: to ALL who filmed, and watched loyally.

The first one I got to see was Mystic Rythm's from St. Louis, he had a battery pack and got the whole show. As great as Bob's Girlfriend and Cactus Pete were I gotta give props to Mystic.
I was hooked right away.

What a tremendous gift to be able to see them so many times on their last (?) tour... and to be able to share the experience with other true fans and good people. It was a great three months.

I didn’t even know Periscope existed until I saw people mentioning it on this board.  I watched bits and pieces of a few shows here and there but I was glued to the last show.  I don’t remember his name but one guy scoped the entire show.  I’m on the east coast so I was up until 2:30 or so watching and it was great.  Thanks to all the Periscopers!

Thanks, merci, gracias...!  Because so many generous fans ran with the new technology and shared their concert experience, I was able to attend the opening and closing shows! In between I saw the premiere of Losing it- in Toronto.

Thank you RUSH scopers for making history but mostly for your generosity!

All of the Rush scopers ought to come here and take a bow.

And we have many resident TRFers who graciously scoped shows or as many songs as they could for us.

I guess I can delete the app off of my phone now. There's something sad about that.
