Alas, my ultimate bitch of an ex threw away all of my old concert tickets (as well trying to get me to dispose of all my Rush stuff) so I can't recall all the dates off hand, but...

Exit...Stage Left Tour: Wembley Arena, 4/11/81
Signals Tour: Wembley Arena (2nd Night I think)
Hold Your Fire: Birmingham NEC (2nd and 3rd Nights)
Roll the Bones: Sheffield Arena

and best of all

30th Anniversary Tour: Wembley Arena, 9/9/2004 (yay!)

Wow! Prices included!

The only price that I can remember was that the tour of the Hemispheres cost me $7. They began to multiply after that.
Aren't you the guy who hit me in the eye?

Good thing is, Your younger this tour round and can Rock harder....

My brother saw them in 1980 at the Apollo, Lucky git, Wish i had been older back then. Now i'm just stuck with a nearly burnt out version of Exit..... on VHS, The closest i'll get to seeing what they were like then.

I saw them on the following tour (ESL) so there wasn't too much difference. Show of Hands brings back a lot of memories as I was there for two of the nights at Birmingham.

ESL was my favourite tour even though it wasn't the first time I saw them.......the atmosphere was amazing (as it was in all the tours) but for some reason ESL is a big big highlight of my life :-)

So far for me, one show which was at SECC in April 1992.

Going to see them 5 times when they reach UK shores in September.

4/82 St. Petersburg, FL
7/02 Charlotte, NC
10/02 Atlanta, GA
8/04 Atlanta, GA

I did some checking up on that '82 show I went to, and supposedly a few songs got retired at the end of the tour...and didn't reappear 'til 20 years later, which happened to be the next time I saw Rush. It was like I picked up where I left off...LOL
