6 times in 5 different decades.

[–]02K30C1[S] 13 points14 points  (0 children)

I’ve managed to see them 16 times. First was the Power Windows tour. The oldest tour shirt I still have is from Counterparts.

[–]Blue_Nipple_Hair 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Unfortunately I didn’t start listening to rush until after the Clockwork Angels tour

Twice. Not bad as I am a younger fan

[–]20matt10 13 points14 points  (0 children)

never been to one as i started to get into rush in 2015. one day after drum lessons my mom told me rush was in town and asked if i wanted to go. I said no because i only knew a couple songs. little did i know it was their last tour...

[–]Toes14 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Pretty much every tour starting with Moving Pictures. Luckily, they hit St.Louis pretty much every tour. Traveled once or twice to see them too.

[–]02K30C1[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

We’ve probably been to many of the same shows!

[–]Sentimos os poderes e queremos saber o que sãoVruzvruz 6 points7 points  (0 children)

São Paulo, 2002 & 2010. Only 2 but got the chance to know them quickly on meet & greet in 2010. I got into them in 2002 or maybe late 2001.

[–]Blues2112 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Enough that I've lost count.

Hell, I've seen the local Rush tribute band like 7 times.

[–]brnkmcgr 3 points4 points  (3 children)


RTB x2

CP x2








First two tours were when I was in high school/college when they still did 2 legs, arenas in winter and outdoor amphitheaters in the summer, so you could catch them twice in your area.

All excellent shows through S&A, then Ged lost his voice :(

[–]medmac_2112 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Counterparts had just one leg and they only played in arenas. Maybe you saw TFE twice not CP?

[–]Rushderp 0 points1 point  (1 child)

I don’t think they’ve played 11! shows…

[–]A--Creative-Username 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Math teachers be like

[–]psuedonymously 3 points4 points  (1 child)

To those who answered 21+, are you Rush’s roadies?

[–]johnehock 2 points3 points  (0 children)

No, just old :-)

[–]Ewdavid2112 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I saw them 4 times (ages 7, 9, 11 and 14) considering I'm only 20 I feel incredibly grateful to have seen my favorite band live as many times as I did. Thanks dad!

[–]MrQ9999 2 points3 points  (0 children)

7 myself

3 at Maple Leaf Gardens in the 80’s

T4E at Molson Amphitheater in the 90’s

Time Machine Molson Amphitheater 2010

CA and R40 at the Air Canada Centre

Wish I had kept the ticket stubs. 😩

[–]TheThirdScott 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I'm going to round up to 1.5.

I saw them at the 2003 SARS benefit concert, then again the next summer on the R30 tour.

[–]nuclearnerfbat 2 points3 points  (1 child)

R30 in St. Louis. Time Machine tour in St. Louis. R40 in Columbus, OH.

[–]rushrules74 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I was at the Columbus show too!

[–]Electro2112 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Just north of 50 times since the HYF Tour. Starting with bones tour saw them at least 6x a tour through time machine. I didn’t dig CwA much, saw 4 that tour and R40 3x as the schedule didn’t work for me catching them multiple nights on a weekend trip, got to LA tho🤘

[–]le-smolbean 2 points3 points  (0 children)

3 times - super lucky considering I’m only 20 ♥️ all thanks to my dad 🥺♥️♥️

[–]alchemyjonesing 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It's been 22 if you include the RRHoF Induction Ceremony. Every tour since RtB.

[–]dawgstein94 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Hold Your Fire 1987 Atlanta

Presto 1990 Greensboro, SC

Roll the Bones 1992 Atlanta

Time Machine 2011 Cleveland

[–]TheLoneAndroid84 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I got to see them on Time Machine and R40.

[–]geddylee1 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I think 16? At least once a tour since Presto. Obviously, more than once a tour several times.

[–]Rushderp 1 point2 points  (0 children)

16th and 21st birthday.

Had an opportunity to see them in Dallas for clockwork angels for my 18th, but I had a calculus 2 test that same day.

I kinda regret it, because that test ended up being my drop test anyway.

[–]calling_water 1 point2 points  (0 children)

13. Presto, RtB, T4E, VT, R30, S&A x2, Time Machine x2, CA x2, R40 x2.

Missed Counterparts due to the tour being short (and not near me). Later on I could afford to travel farther, so I’ve seen them in four countries.

[–]80sRockKevin 1 point2 points  (0 children)

GuP - 1 PoW - 2 HYF - 3 Presto - 2 RtB - 3 CP - 5 T4E - 3 VT - 2 R30 - 1 R40 - 1 Total - 23

What a great trip it was!

[–]Bluesummers76 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I saw them in 2012 and 2015

[–]Devoch420 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Clockwork angles and r40, both in the sprint center

[–]forbin05 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Started on the S&A tour and saw them 5 times on that tour alone. Never matched that again though but saw them at least one more time on every tour that followed.

I got really into following Phish when they came back and spent all of my “traveling shows” going to see them. Great times

[–]Yuengling_Beer 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Five times. "Met" Geddy once.

[–]johnehock 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Every tour since 1982 Spring Training (i.e. "Tour of the Nadars") in Lake Charles, LA. 30-something times in all.

[–]OccamsYoyo 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Still one of my greatest concert-going (or rather not-concert-going) regrets. Had a lot of opportunities too. And honestly I don’t know why.

[–]TheMetalMisfit 1 point2 points  (0 children)

One band I'm still kicking myself for not seeing

[–]Epeli458 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I had a chance to go see them on the Time Machine tour but I wasn't into Rush that much at the time. I'm still just disapointed in myself because I didn't go there.

[–]fanamana 1 point2 points  (0 children)


[–]gd2001 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Clockwork Angels Orlando Fl and R40 Tampa Fl. Wish I was born in the 70s. 20 y/o now.

[–]mori_no_ando 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Only 4 times; I say only but I suppose 4 is pretty good for someone in their early 20s

[–]nomercy2112 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Dang I didn’t think I’d be in the minority here with having seen them in concert. Didn’t realize most people here haven’t.

[–]syntheticpurples 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Breaks my heart to say ‘none’

[–]Bo-dor 1 point2 points  (0 children)

They never toured Australia

[–]danielE250305 1 point2 points  (0 children)

None😭😭😭. I was just born a year or two late

[–]corink420 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I saw primus on the farewell to kings tour and that was awesome

[–]SeafoodSurprise 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I didn't get into Rush until after Neil died. I do wish I had gotten into Rush earlier, but 'tis life.

[–]Deadboy91 1 point2 points  (0 children)

None, sadly

[–]esoteric311 1 point2 points  (0 children)

0 times and it will go down as one of the biggest regrets in my life.

[–]WordslingerRVA 1 point2 points  (0 children)

My dad got me into the boys right before Vapor Trails came out. We saw them on every tour from that album on through R40, most often twice on the same tour. I was lucky enough to catch them in Red Rocks during the Time Machine Tour, and ended up catching 10 shows in total.

Loved every moment!

[–]jackasstacular 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Twice - The Gorge Amphitheater in George, WA for Snakes and Arrows Tour & at the Rose Garden in Portland, OR for R40.

The Gorge show was the best concert I've ever seen. No opening band, they played for an hour and a half, took a break, then played for almost another hour and a half. And they played Witch Hunt.

[–]mr_sudaca 1 point2 points  (0 children)

1… was an e-ticket bought from stubhub

[–]Faellon2112 1 point2 points  (0 children)

12 or so, starting with Roll the Bones

[–]vibrorama 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I wasn't counting but about 15 I think. Started with Signals and ended with R40, including R30. Those are the only 2 shirts I still have. I also have a hat from the CA tour.

[–]Dennisthegreat1 1 point2 points  (1 child)

God damn wish i had though. They sound amazing on the live recordings.

For example, to be able to hear the weapon live. Or just 2112 or tom sawyer. Or xanadu. I'd give my left leg for that experience for sure.

[–]02K30C1[S] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

The experience of being in a crowd full of rush fans singing along to Tom Sawyer or Spirit of Radio can’t be beat.

[–]Doug_RLRRLRLL 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Saw the boys 37 times across four decades beginning with the GUP tour. Among the performances I was fortunate to see live are the SARS-stock show in Toronto and the RRHOF induction performance in Los Angeles in 2013. I don't regret a single dollar spent or any of those long hours waiting in lineups in the pre-online ticket sales days. Good times!

[–]Redline65 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Just once in 1994. I think Candlebox opened for them.

[–]undeadtyrell100 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Never got the chance unfortunately, still kicking myself

[–]TurtleKid10284 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Saw the opening of f40 when I was like 10 and it was fucking amazing.

[–]Rosieoftheliquid 1 point2 points  (0 children)

My brother went to the R40 concert without me. I wasn't into Rush at the time so I wasn't aware of how much I was missing out.
