I saw the tour in Miami about a month in, and Candlebox came out on stage and apologized saying I know you are all here to see RUSH, so please bear with us for a few songs. FWIW, they sounded really good and rocked out. I remember being pleasantly surprised...too bad they didn't do much after that, that was memorable..

Opening show of the Counterparts Tour was today (Jan. 22), twenty years ago, in Pensacola.

Sad to say, the show had a lot of glitches. Sound quality was notably bad, which was really odd considering they'd had a week of rehearsals in the hall to get it right (and Rush had played Pensacola many times before when that wasn't the case). The back-of-stage video for "Double Agent" wasn't synced with the recording/sequencer for the spoken-word verses. And the opening act (Candlebox) were completely shellshocked, I believe that was their first show outside of the bar circuit. A sellout arena (where not one person was there to see them) obviously freaked that band out.

But hey, it still rocked, and I got to say hello to Ged and Al for the first time before the show...

I can relate to those who mark events in their life with Rush albums/tours. The period between 1998-2002 was a somewhat dark time in my life although not as bad as what Neil was going through, however I had just graduated high school and had no direction. It looked like my favorite band in the world that I so identitied with would never play again. Right about 2002 I got my act together and got into a good university. It happened to coincide with the return of Rush, so I've always felt a kind of connection with them in this sense. Like I had returned to life.

In Nov 1989 was in the first year of my military career. I was stationed in Okinawa, Japan and was just getting off duty and pulling into my dorm barracks. A new song was just starting to play on AFN Radio as I was turning off the engine. I swear to sweet baby Jesus in heaven within a few seconds I absolutely knew it was a brand new RUSH song. It was "Show Don't Tell"

That was 25 years ago. I remember it vividly.

P.S. I saw Earth, Wind, and Fire while there on a USO Tour. What a fantastic concert. I had no clue.

Not pathetic. I remember exactly where I was when I heard the first song from every album released since Grace Under Pressure.

Big Money - I know that McDonald's still served their McDLT burgers in 1985 because I was in a friend's car in the McDonald's drive thru ordering one when it came on the radio. I knew instantly it was new Rush. I was in high school at the time.

Even better memory - making out with my girlfriend in my bedroom while Mystic Rhythms played on my cassette player.
They packaged McDLT in a double kind of box - hot stays hot - cold stays cold.

I've been lucky. I usually found women in my life who would put up with my Rush obsession - except for my first wife - no wonder that didn't work out....LOL.

I use some really vague Rush references as passwords, nothing as predictable as 2112 etc. I do keep track of past timelines corresponding with Rush events/releases.For example a couple of weeks ago I was talking to a customer about a job we had done and she said "I think you guys did this job around '99 or 2000" so I thought back and said "no, it was longer than that, I remember I had just bought Rush Test for Echo and we were listening to it on this jobsite, so it was the fall of '96 when we did your job." Pathetic huh?

Guilty! I have developed my own Rush password system...some would call me "Loser." ;)

Ok everybody, how many of us use 2112 as our pin number and other Rush lyrics for passwords?

Very funny Marvel!

Favorite references are still Kreiger's creepy van from Archer, and his reference to YYZ.
