    I can't imagine them doing another major tour, so for Rush fans it would be a shame to miss them this time around. I'd like to see them make another studio album after this, and then, if they have to, gracefully call it a day if that is their wish.

    They are coming to town on my birthday!

    would love to, but as many acts....not playing in San Diego. I'm thinking of going up to the Forum on Aug 1st.

    Got tickets to the tour kick off this coming Friday in Tulsa. My 14 year old son is a huge fan, so this will be a great 1st concert for him. Apparently the band has been in town already for rehearsals......I've got a few friends that have spotted them at dinner.

    My wife and I have tickets to see them June 10th in Buffalo. This is the first real rock concert for both my wife and myself and we can't wait.

    Going to Greensboro on 5/28. 50+ shows since 1980. This could be it.
    Hey-I am grateful that they ever came back(after Neil's personal tragedies) at all. I like some of their more recent output and they certainly enjoy playing it.

    Seeing 'em in San Jose. I really with they were playing one of the amphitheaters around here (Shoreline or Concord) rather than the shark tank (worst...sound..ever). But yeah, no way I'm missing this.

    Boston on June 23. I really hope they keep some of the Clockwork Angels stuff in the set. That album blows me away every time I listen to it.

    I've never seen them. Big fan. But the only place they are playing is 6 hours away.


    Too far.

    Greensboro for me and my best friend. Couldn't get through in time for Atlanta to get good seats, so that was the next closest. Can't wait!

    I'm considering going to the St. Louis show next Thursday...there are still some tickets available. It'll be my 3rd time seeing them, my girlfriend's 1st.

    I'd love to see them again, but Denver or Phoenix are the closest shows to me. I'm just not the road-trip-to-see-a-band kind of guy anymore.

    Saw them every tour from Signals -> Test For Echo. Won't be going. Looking forward to the inevitable DVD release.

    I talked to a couple of their crew at Coachella, they were working for another act, and asked how the rehearsals were going.
    They replied, "great...they just need to learn the damn songs!"
    The implication being that they are going to mix up the setlist a bit and that's causing them to have to re-learn some songs they haven't played in a very long time.
    ;)

    I'll be at the May 30 show at Jiffy Lube Live (I hate that name!) in Northern Virginia, section 204.
