Not a book fan, but I could be interested in this.

Looks essential.  According to Amazon.co.uk, it's not out until October, so I'd give it about a year.

Interested to read that Eric Hansen & Skip Daly are involved...

I've "known" them / of them both through the internet since my early years of RoIO trading. Both top guys...

Currently £22.75 at Amazon covered by their "pre-order price guarantee"

I'm holding off for the time being to see if the price drops after publication ;D

While an excellent book, it is just a book of  gig listings with sporadic pictures and some brief introductory texts.  A little disappointed if I being honest.

A bloody big heavy book mind you.

There was once a website dedicated to Rush tour dates and setlists, and on the face of it (I haven't seen it, but as described) this book is just an illustrated version of that, isn't it?

Robert Telleria's book, 'Mereley(sic) Players' , from 2002 has a section on set lists, tour dates etc. Although a cursory glance at the internet suggests that it contains a lot of errors (not necessarily in that chapter)
I've enjoyed using that as a reference but I would think this latest book would be the definitive one on this subject.

The cygnus site is the best - I believe Jon who runs it posts on here from time to time :

Yes, I recall printing them all out so probably have the book in the attic somewhere, might look it out when I search for the Xmas decorations.

Received this from amazon us as i had credit with them so it didn't really cost me ,but price wise $31 plus $5 for postage it would have worked out a bit cheaper (at the time) than the uk based amazon .. If your into facts and figures on where they played and how much some of the gigs grossed and how many attendees were there then yeah it's a worthwhile addition to the library. Some decent pics and anecdotes from various crew members ,it will make for a good stocking filler ,but if your a casual type of fan then this isn't really for you .It is a weighty tome and will most likely sit on a shelf gathering dust along with all the other rush books or for pressing flowers ,no doubt someone will digitize it somewhere at some point ..

What it probably proves, if accurate, is that so-called 'sold out' tours are nothing of the sort. Although I take little pleaure, when it comes to Rush, in mentioning that fact!

Don't think any band has ever had a sellout tour no matter how big they and no matter what the hype says
