I went to 6 on this tour.  Tulsa, Houston, Chicago, Salt Lake, Irvine, and LA.  4 of them were front row.  Kept hitting row 1 in the presales, so I couldn't NOT buy them.  Amazing times!

Sadly  I did not get to see this tour.  They did not play SPAC this time round (my 1'st choice by far) and MSG sold out before I got the chance to get a ticket.

Just have to wait and hope they put out a DVD and CD for the tour.  Plus hope that maybe, perhaps, if we all get lucky they might perhaps play a few shows again someday and I will have to try to get into those.

I wonder if there was someone who actually saw each and every show this tour, other than the people who were paid to do it.

And no I don't mean by periscope. :)

I know a person who said she did. Her name is Stevie and she's from Austin, TX. She was at all three show I went to, plus Tom Healey and CygnusGal met her in different cities. It's possible.

I think I would even get tired of going to each and every concert of a tour. That's a lot of traveling and sleeping in hotels. Not that much fun after a while.

Agreed. Chick is was making sure she did though. I got my magic crystal from her...gives positive vibes...I think I can feel them when we talk about Clockwork Angels

I like to do a couple shows because it is almost too much to take in on one show. Plus different seats give you completely different experiences.

My god man 4 times front row in open sales that is some luck right there you need to play the lottery(I loved front row but would need at least one show further back)

I was fortunate enough to be able to see eight shows.  I like viewing from different perspectives.  I saw the show from both sides, dead on across from stage lower level, back row of upper level as well as the front row.  I'd get bored if I saw it from the same angle every time..

I agree. In Montreal we had seats in the back corner of the lower bowl. I noticed things at that show that I didn't see in in Atlanta or Toronto.

Only one for me (chicago). I could afford going to more, but the concert thing in general is kind of a hassle to me. I wouldn't want to over-do it to the point where it wasn't worthwhile. A lil dab will do.

I can't ever remember seeing the same movie more than 2-3 times, so I have a low tolerance for boredom with adhd tendencies (SQUIRREL!!).

However, the idea of seeing every show would be a neat bucket list thing to do given unlimited financial resources (winning lotto ticket).

Just two. Cancelled MSG at the last minute.

Aside from the concert tickets (at face or below), I limit myself to gas and parking expenses.

I have the WORST luck at the lottery!  :huh:

I only came up with one theory.  My grandfather had just passed away, and I think his spirit invaded the ticketmaster servers to help cheer me up.  Thanks, Pop!   :rush:

I'm just bummed that it didn't work out for me to get to more than one...Philly was purportedly one of the better performances, and that was the one I had to miss....

I only made it to one show in Vancouver., and I saw Losing It.  I would of liked to have seen more shows, but Losing It made up for it.

I enjoyed a personal best of 7 on this tour! I hit 2 first leg shows with Lincoln and DC. I pair of mountain journeys in Denver and Salt Lake. And a western madness tour with Vegas, Irvine, and LA!!! I've never had son much Rush fun and love as I have this year. I will admit that by the time I got to LA I was emotionally and physically worked. I took in so much this time I felt like I was in my own little piece of the Rush galaxy. Standing in the abyss of the disco ball hanging off the edge of the Forum bowl as my heroes assumed control will resonate forever! Thank you RUSH!!!
