Continued from "Uncanny 137 Question" thread.

"Didn't Vapor Trails come in in 2004?"

Not quite. "Vapour Trail" was 2002. "Feedback" was 2004.

I've only seen Rush twice but looking forward to seeing them more.

First saw them live on their Power Windows tour.  Haven't missed a tour since then...

I have to say, I was underwhelmed with Test for Echo.  For awhile, I thought my tastes and the band's direction had diverged.  Then Vapor Trails came out.  Possibly my favorite of all their albums.

70`s=Hemispheres

80`s=Power Windows

90`s=Counterparts

I didn`t include Moving Pictures in my 80`s choice as that deserves a category all of it`s own=Best Rush album ever.

David, is there any way to find out their next list of tour dates? I've only been to their concert twice back in the eighties and then again at an ampitheatre. There is no other group than a Rush concert that I would like to watch again. It is an experience in the back of an auditorium when they're cranking the volume all out. I still remember the Big Money Power Windows presentation on the backdrop display and the red laser scan that resonated throughout the auditorium.

Jacob: They have not announced or listed their upcoming tour dates as of
yet. I'll be watching their web site though.

Gene: You can find the collection I mentioned on this site:

Complete Tourbook

edited for clarity

I liked the look of that,there was a limited edition of signed copies a while ago,the cost of shipping such a weighty tome to Europe put me off!
