The official Billboard Boxscore attendance and sales figures for all but one of the US dates on Rush's 2012 Clockwork Angels tour were released today; only the Atlanta show numbers are still pending along with the 6 Canadian dates. 8 of the 28 shows reported were sell outs including Manchester, Bridgeport, Newark, Buffalo, San Jose, Universal City, Dallas and Houston. The highest-grossing date on the tour was the September 15th show in Chicago which grossed $1,113,292. The most-attended show was the sold out October 26th show in Buffalo where 13,215 fans filled the First Niagara Center.

these talented canuckian subdividers Deserve their delusional entitlements, and loves of their-of's. of money becasause thier fame and fortune can't soothe any philosopher's wound that dared not heal.


it's all the way one would even come out to make their first word of the tour as bold as "Sprawling".

#26, Since you asked... Your set list is amazing, with a few personel changes. Replace Ghost Rider,Bravado,Prime Mover,Mystic Rhythms,Time & Motion. Mix it up with, just the boys and these songs,Natural Science, By-Tor,Passage
To Bangkok,Beneath Between Behind, Bastille Day, & Driven. Sign me up! I'll be there, and I'll bring KJ too. One last thing, you did mean the ENTIRE Fountain of Lamneth, didn't you? I would hope so! LOL! Have a good one. Rush On! Love reading your posts.

#25, I do not really know if I would call the Phoenix concert Rush's best show yet. Perhaps, Atlanta was much better. I do know however, that the music was not so loud that it had adversely effected my hearing. It was great to see support of the Clockwork Angels string ensemble, although at this point Rush touring with a symphony orchestra, in the near future, does not seem to be such an outrageous idea. I would have liked to have seen more songs from "Roll The Bones." I think that 'Bravado,' 'Dreamline' and 'Ghost Of A Chance' would have worked extremely well with the string ensemble support. I am hoping that they continue in this vein during the 40th (actually 46th anniversary) tour in 2014.

Of course, my set list for 2014 would be slightly different. I would like to see the following songs performed by Rush with the support of a string section or perhaps, even a symphony orchestra at this time: 'The Fountain Of Lamneth,' 'Xanadu,' 'The Trees,' 'La Villa Strangiato,' 'Jacob's Ladder,' 'Different Strings,' 'The Camera Eye,' 'Losing It,' 'Manhattan Project,' 'Marathon,' 'Middletown Dreams,' 'Mystic Rhythms,' 'Prime Mover,' 'Available Light,' 'Dreamline,' 'Bravado,' 'Ghost Of A Chance,' 'You Bet Your Life,' 'Nobody's Hero,' 'Animate,' 'Time & Motion,' 'Ghost Rider,' 'Faithless,' 'Halo Effect' and 'The Garden.' Does anybody else have any other opinions? If so, please do not hesitate to share them, thank you.

Best show yet! Was at the ATL show, and had to be 12,000 or more. This band continues to defy the laws of tradition. Probably the only band to ever be so popular so late in their career, and to do so without the benefit of #1 albums, singles, and mainstream media acceptance or support. Can't be said enough that the ticket price is worth every penny, and the only truly disappointing thing for me was I didn't score a tour program due to the long line and wait involved. Wasn't gonna miss one second of the show, and figured on getting one at Rush backstage but there is still none available. Hoping for a NOLA show 2013!

My understanding is that Toronto show #1 was a sellout. I don't believe Toronto show #2 quite got there, but it also did well. I believe Montreal was also a sellout.

#21-There are more people in poverty today in the U.S than anytime since they kept records in the 50's. It's a fact not a generalization Congratulations on your personal situation. Just be aware that some are not so fortunate.
