Just curious as to when crowds first started that at Rush concerts....anyone know? :unsure:

Also would love to know what everyone thinks of it and wanted to do a poll but can never seem to get them to work, so.....?

A poll to decide what?

Who likes it, who doesn't, who doesn't care either way...you know, that sort of thing.

Hard to tell because by the time they started it, they were pretty much done in my book  ... safe to say I never liked the HEYs

And truth be told, the comedic **** they did onstage later on was another nail for me

The roasting chickens, the attempts at humor in the videos, the witch in Witch Hunt - not good

I like my Rush like I like my women - odd, articulate, and from outer space

Why, that's the Official R40 2112 "Hay" Horse, of course. I think Vancouver might have been the first appearance?

Back to the OP, I had heard the South American crowds were the one that started the "Hey!", and also the "singing along" to YYZ.

Thanks...I asked because not only was I curious but my brother asked. He told me when he saw them on the MP tour and also Power Windows that he doesn't remember hearing that, and PW is already 1985.

I wish they'd gotten the HAY horse on the DVD but it didn't start until after they recorded it.

But to answer the OP's question it was a long time ago. I vaguely remember it around Signals.

I like humor too, but I do wish it were a bit more subtle sometimes, and without all the slapstick and rubber chicken-style stuff.
