    In Europe anyways...


    RUSH: European Tour Off The Table! - Nov. 4, 2002

    It's official: RUSH will not be touring Europe in support of their latest CD, "Vapor Trails".

    "[The European tour] is off the table," guitarist Alex Lifeson recently confirmed. "To be honest, we know we have fans there but the album sales and interest in promoters is seriously lacking in Europe. A lot of that is our own doing but financially it just does not make sense to bring our show over there when we could play nine or ten different venues in North America and reach more people and make a profit. We did have it scheduled to begin in January for three weeks but we could not get backing over there and we decided to scrap it. We are aware of the interest, but I am sorry to say, as of right now, it would actually hurt to tour there than help in a monetary sense. This is a big show, ya know? We would not want to just show up over there and have to cut corners and short the fans over there from the same concert experience the audience is getting over here. We hope things improve but not this tour."

    Never could figure out why the Euros go apesh*t over Floyd, but don't care about Rush...

    Personal story about Rush and Euros:

    - Back in '93 I spent a week with two German girls visiting California (and the US) for the first time. We were up in Napa Valley and I had 'Moving Pictures' playing on the car stereo. They asked me who was playing, then they subsequently told me they weren't familiar with Rush. I told them the greatest rock drummer in the world played in this band, and they didn't believe me because they hadn't heard of him. So we pull off at an A&W for lunch, and while we were in line waiting to place our order, I turned to a 20-something guy in line behind us and asked him (in front of these girls) "Who's the greatest drummer in the world?" Naturally the guy said "Neil Peart".

    ...the look on those girls' faces was priceless. [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]

    <a href="" target="_blank">The Real Deal</a> does old VH better than any other band in the SF Bay Area. Hearing is believing...
