And I mean in the building.  Periscope doesn't count.  :P   Surely it can't be me with 4 (Austin, Dallas, Denver, LA).

I know some of the people that I'm friends with on Facebook have been to a dozen or more shows. I can't imagine how much that must have cost.

Indeed.  Just tickets alone.  :o

I've noticed there are fans like this for a lot of bands not just Rush. They're so dedicated to their band that they save all their money and vacation time for when they tour.

Me, i've been able to afford to see them twice each over the last three tours. Anything more than that would be pushing it financially.

I've noticed that the same people tend to do it for every tour. I just can't imagine especially the way ticket prices have been.  Then to add on a hotel, transportation to and from wherever you go while you're there, food....etc.

And what are the odds you could get tickets for 12 shows on THIS tour without having to resort to StubHub or some other broker.  Then it really gets ridiculous.

I've still only been to 13 total Rush shows.  Never felt much need to see them more than once in a calendar year.  There was something extra addictive about this tour though and I ended up going a little crazy.  Maybe also in part because it looks like the last one.

3 for me and my daughter. Atlanta, Toronto (night 2), and Montreal. Also did RushCon in Toronto and visited LeStudio in Morin Heights, Quebec. It's been a great few "Rush" months.

Glad I made that Seattle trip Goose. It was so fun to hang out, even if it was just for a short time.

With my two pals, I saw, including rehearsals, about 50 shows. Now I need some rest. Oh yeah, I need some rest.

I was glad to see one. Road tripping for these shows is so expensive for me.

At these prices I live out of my car and stay for cheap at campsites with shower facilities when I make extra$! Selling quesadillas in rhe parking lot after and before shows.

Oh sorry though you said Phish.

I saw 12. I took advantage of being from Delaware, and went to Philly, Bristow, Newark and MSG which are all less than 2 hours away. My "travel" shows were Tulsa, New Orleans, Tampa, both Toronto shows, Vancouver, Seattle, and LA. It cost me a small fortune, and priority-wise, much more than I should have spent. But I would do it again in a heartbeat. If I had more vacation time I would have gone to more shows. I met and shared the experience with some awesome and incredibly nice people. I truly had the time of my life.
