How many shows have you been to?

Cygnus 2112

Recommended Posts

Somewhere between 60 or 70 times for me. First time in Cleveland in December of 1974, last time in Cincinnati in July of 2013. My daughter has been been with me to about 15 of those shows. We have R40 tickets for Atlanta and Toronto (night 2). Edited by johndyar

10 so far:


VT: W Palm Beach, ATL


R30: Charlotte, Tampa


S&A leg 1: W Palm Beach, Tampa


S&A leg 2: Jacksonville, Orlando


TM: W Palm Beach


CA: Minneapolis


R40 St. Paul will make 11.


It's just dawning on me that of my first 10 shows, I've been 20 rows or closer to the stage 5 times :cool:. And St. Paul will be #6. Without scalpers :ebert: . Even with the advantage of only buying for myself, I've been pretty lucky (and/or stubborn/persistent/obsessed :wacko: ) the last 13 years.

I have seen them three times, and I am not counting this tour that they started now!


First time was on Time Machine Tour. Then I had really lousy seat, faaaaaar back and could not see much.


And then I saw them again on Clockwork Angels Tour. Then I was on first row infront of Alex! And then two days later, I saw them again, then I was on first row infront of Geddy! :D


We see if I will see them on this tour.... Not sure if they are coming to Europe or not, I hope they will...

I haven't been to any and, unfortunately, unless Rush decide to extent the tour to include Europe, that's unlikely to change.

R40 Live will be 35 (Detroit) & 36 (Denver) for me. My first ticket was for AFtK tour in Milwaukee, in January of 1978, but a monster snow store prevented us going into the city from the 'burbs for the show... ;-{ The first show I attended was for Permanent Waves at Cobo Hall, in 1980. I was hoping to get to 40 shows to coincide with 40 years of Rush but my budget just will not allow that. Oh well, I will not complain, believe me! This has been quite an amazing run... Rock ON!
