    Yep. Got that, and bought a copy for my buddy who got me into them. I figure he can go through it saying, “Saw it...saw it...missed one...saw it...”

    We were lucky in that during the heyday most bands would come to Cincinnati and Dayton and we'd get to see our favorite bands twice on every tour, since each was less than an hour from home. I did see Genesis three times on one tour though because we also went to Lexington KY to see them. And one thing that I always thought was curious, but certainly worked out better for me, was that most bands would come to Cincinnati and Dayton several months apart... you'd think they'd cut travel expenses by lining them up geographically, but they NEVER did. In fact, they were usually 3 or even 4 months apart. Sometimes they would do that because they'd play indoors in winter at Dayton and outdoors at Riverbend in Cincy during summer. That was especially nice when I was a broke college kid. I couldn't have afforded 2 concerts in the same week.

    The April before I graduated from high school I won a contest from the local rock radio station (97x) and the one of the music stores in Davenport, Ia. It was 2 tix to every concert within 75 miles of Davenport, for an entire year. Most of the big shows were in Cedar Rapids (about 60 miles). I would offer one ticket to a buddy if he would drive. Man, we saw some great shows that year. Sometimes 4 in a week. Plus, I made some cash selling tickets to the shows we didn't have any interest in seeing. This would have been April '85 to April '86. Sadly, Rush wasn't one of them. Been a fan since the late 70s, but never saw them until the Hold Your Fire Tour.

    Not sure how it was in the old days, but at least now, the promoters tend to have clauses to keep bands from playing too close together too soon. I still see some nonsensical routings - Cleveland to Pittsburgh to Buffalo to Virginia to Cincinnati. Makes me shake my head sometimes.

    Oh man I might have to pick that up. I saw them in Baltimore at the Civic Center in 86 or 87. I think it might have been the power windows tour. I remember they opened with Spirit of Radio and it was one of the best shows I have seen throughout my entire life.

    I'm one of those for whom Rush died after Hemispheres (maybe coming up for air with Moving Pictures). But love them I do ... college + D&D + Rush + [redacted].

    Ya know, as it was happening, I was kinda this way, too. Side 1 of Moving Pictures was awesome, but I didn’t get side 2. Each of their subsequent releases left me scratching my head. Now, I love all of the catalog. Some of those albums I thought were meh in my youth I now adore.

    So one day I was in GC to pick up some strings, and the manager came over and asked me how my son was doing (he knows Jamie well from boyhood on). So I said something to the effect of great, he’s touring with 30 Seconds to Mars.

    The snarky kid behind the counter said, “30 Seconds to Mars? Are they still even a band,” in the snarkiest of snarky tones. And I said, “yeah, they have the #1 record on the rock chart this week,” which was in fact the case.

    I was kind of steamed at this kid, with all kinds of tats and nose rings, but who was too effing cool to handle that my kid was touring without being a jerk about it.

    “What’s this got to do with Rush, Les?”

    “Oh, nothing. Is Rush still a band?” ;)
