  1. Losing It Live on Video! :drool:
  2. Sounds Awesome! :dweez: :dweez:
  3. Hey they gave us The Camera Eye, Jacobs Ladder, Xanadu and even Losing it this Tour. Best Tour ever :finbar: !
  4. A one off show would happen in a Football Stadium. I remember Geddy saying "that's the way I like it to end!" When the Who did their show in the 80's. Off course we all know that didn't happen. The Who's last tour was great though! Anyway, I'm happy for sharing 30 years of my life with them. I got to see them many times beginning with the Signals Tour and I can say they were the Soundtrack to my life along with every song written by John Williams. I guess what I'm saying is they've more then earned their retirement and I wish them and their families well. They will always be the best band in the world to me and I will always support them in what they decided to do. Its been a great ride! I still have hope for an R50 Show!
  5. Guess what I'm Doing this Thanksgiving? I'm gonna be doing "What You're Doing" I see what you did there! :codger:
  6. It would not be in the Fall for Neil wouldn't be able to do much biking do to weather. Most likely late April pr May of 2106.
  7. Step One Accomplished Dvd/Cd on November 20th. I expect the announcement for the R40 Live Tour Second leg around January 2016 Or after Christmas 2015.
  8. Happy B-Day Lerst! Here's Mr. X from Victor! https://www.youtube....h?v=EN8sWpxfaAQ

    Is it Over?

    I think they will record a new album in 4 years and tour on that album.
  11. IDK. I don't think there will be one, they just seem... done; however, I find it odd they didn't end the tour in Toronto. I would think they would have a huge grand finale in their hometown. I think it was to accomodate Neil, He does live there. I think Neil has, does and always will scare the poo out of Geddy and Alex. Gotta keep the big man happy because he'll either kick your butt or spout random bits of sheer awesome brilliance until you cower to his every whim. I kid. Neil is fantastic and amazing, as are Geddy and Alex, of course. I'm sure ending in LA had more to do other than that's where Neil lives. I should imagine tour was mapped out to venue availability and the weather accross the regions - how many gigs were outdoors ? Not Many!
  12. I so wish I was there. Unfortunately I'll have to wait to relive Losing It on the Live DVD/ Blu-ray! Hopefully it's not the end! I remember so many people claiming that this song would be such a downer live. I'm so glad they were all sooooooo wrong as it turned out to be a highlight! to the point they played it an additional 3 times during the tour! :dweez: :dweez:
  13. Simply Brilliant! Made me feel I was there! My favorite line and one I agree 100% with was " One would think the last set would have more energy than the 1st, for some reason that was not the case though. Weird." I agree I don't know what it was but the first set had much more energy than the second for me. Maybe I was just in awe of the set during the second. Weird! One of the most surprising songs live when I saw them was Animate. I song i don't really care for much but somehow this was elevated to a new degree during this tour. But back to point, As always It's such a pleasure being exposed to such great talent, And I mean you! TM! Bravo!
  14. There will be another tour, Somewhere someday!
  15. The band hasn't been reliant on ticket sales for decades. They get a guarantee from the promoter. I believe Madison Square Garden was a sellout too. And several other venues. Numbers are not just up yet. If you think about it, how many bands/artists (besides country shit) can sell out venues like that year-in-year out... everywhere around the US? Of course U2, AC/DC, DMB, Springsteen, Stones, Van Halen, Fleetwood Mac and the other old farts... but besides them? Not so many. New bands and teen idols come and go... only these old guys are guaranteed draws. 2010 Rush ranked nicely among the top grossing acts (per gig) http://archive.is/FDCj That's where we come in! They have one of the most loyal fan bass around and they know it! I got yer loyal fan bass RIGHT HERE! http://fugitivemind.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/01/fanbass.jpg Thats pretty Fanny! :laughing guy:

  17. Words to live by Neil! You owe it to yourself! Besides its not like you can sing and play keyboards like Phil.
  18. I do! I did! I came back here and mentioned it, but it didn't get much of a response, but I thought the exit...stage left video was a very strong message. And whoever put it together, or even thought of it, is very imaginative and creative. It was done very well, and it is very poignant.
