I think I misunderstood the original question.

The first time I can remember seeing RUSH was the Distant Early Warning video. The narrow ties! The rolled up suit jacket sleeves! The mullets!

Oh, how I miss the 80's...

They were heavily harrassed when I saw them in NY as well. I don't think they were out of the first verse of the first song before we all started screamin' for Rush

Ahh yes, I remember that well, September 19,1980, the Permanent Waves tour. Two things that I can still recall from that show - an incredible explosion at the beginning of Temples of Syrinx and two new songs they previewed from their next album - Tom Sawyer and Limelight.

Still going strong after 30 years....amazing!

First and only time so far I've seen Rush live was way back in 1992 when they toured with Roll The Bones at SECC in Glasgow.

So far, but by the end of the UK leg of the tour, you will have seen them four more times, right? RUSH STALKER!

First time I saw them was when MTV was just starting up back in 1981-82. Man all the video's were cool.

The first concert was Test for Echo 1996, at The Gorge in George Wa.

Too bad about Candlebox. I saw that tour in Charlotte and Chapel Hill and thought that Candlebox was a fine opener. Of course my favorite opener to Rush has been on the last 3 tours.

It's so fun hearing about everybody else's experiences.

My first time was in 1979... Tour of the Hemispheres in Salt Lake City. I went in as a casual fan. I only knew The Trees, La Villa Strangiato, and 2112. When they played Cygnus X-1 The Journey and Geddy started playing that melody on his foot keyboard I just about fell out of my seat I was so excited. That was when I made the transition from being a casual fan to a hard-core fan.

Oh yeah! When I first saw them I was just a wean and I was blown away that Geddy could do so many things at one time. Sealed me as a Rushian for life.
