Rush R40 Live tour official attendance and sales figures

Wed, Oct 7, 2015@4:42PM | comments

UPDATE - 10/9@1:19PM: Phil Simon put together a nice little graph of Rush's attendance figures for the tour which you can check out here.

Earlier today Billboard Boxscore reported a big batch of official sales and attendance figures for Rush's R40 Live tour, bringing the total reported dates so far up to 32. The only shows not to report figures yet are the Atlanta, Calgary and Vancouver shows. Judging by the numbers for these 32 shows, the R40 Live tour has been by far Rush's most successful tour in recent memory, with 25 of the 32 shows reported being sellouts and the remaining seven close to it at around 95% capacity. About two-thirds of the shows have grossed well over $1 million, with the June 29th show at Madison Square Garden bringing in a whopping $1,507,393. The May 30th show in Bristow was the most-attended by a wide margin with 16,579 fans in attendance. You can check out the specific numbers for the 32 shows reported below or in the tour section:
