tripdad posted a topic in On The Lighted StageOK, maybe this has been raised already, but I had a thought the other day. I feel RUSH has had some very good marketing campaigns these past few years that has boosted their income somewhat. Marketing geniuses? Maybe not to the level of KISS, but to me they're a genius ;) This past tour was specifically (and intentionally in my opinion) left open as to if it was their last or not. They said they wouldn't play that "Final Tour" card. So what was the result of that statement? Several show sellouts! I personally went to 6 shows thinking, yes it may be their last tour, but probably not, but again, don't take a chance and miss some final shows. So we get down to the last show in LA and Neil provides the icing on the cake to the marketing hype by coming out and taking a bow. Oh my gosh, this must be the end, right?? So what I think is going to happen is they will take 1-2 years off and come back on a limited tour (as they have indicated may be a possibility) doing 2-3 shows each in major cities; NYC, LA, Chicago, Toronto, and Cleveland (yes, I had to say Cleveland). So when us fans see they are back we once again go to multiple shows, they sell out many, if not all of them, and everyone is happy. Marketing Geniuses! Now go buy some re-issued RUSH vinyls like good fans... :rush:
