Two Dates in Canada?

Post by hossinvancouver » Fri Jun 18, 2004 3:13 pm

I realize that European fans have waited a significant amount of time to see Rush. I also realize that most fans probably don't give a crap how many dates they play in Canada. However, I cannot get over how poorly represented their tour is in Canada this time around. Two dates? Two venues? No Vancouver. No western Canadian dates. And no answers from their management company...at all. The last time I complained about this, a European fan told me to go $!@#! myself. I don't care. I am still pissed off. I don't want to go to Seattle. I don't want to cross the border...but, it looks like I have no choice because there's no way I'm going 3000 miles to Toronto to watch them.

You got something against the ol' U.S. of A.!??! :x :x

Just joking, yeah, that's pretty crappy that they're only playing 2 dates in Canada. Enjoy the show ;)

That Euorpean should not have responded that way. I mean, how would he feel if Rush didn't come to his area? Saying, "deal with it is one thing," but that was too much.

I'm in two minds about this.

Yes, its tough that Canada only gets two dates, especially as the band profess their patriotism so vociferously. However, two dates is a lot more than we in Europe usually get. In the UK, its been 12 years since they toured and, before that, there was a four year gap.

However, I agree that the European fan's response was out of line but take some comfort. For us in Europe, I think its probably the last time that we'll have a chance to see Rush live whereas you'll have a great many more. In addition, its possible that they may add some further Canadian dates at the end - you never know.
