Just gotta point out that Rush says fuck you to almost the entire world except for America. Hell, the Euro leg of S&A was a handful of dates whereas America got two large legs. Also, I'd be pissed if I was Canadian. Rush is from my country and I only get like 4 dates on the Time Machine tour while America gets every market hit? That's a BS way for an internationally loved band to tour.

This is only the start of the tour though. So i'm sure more Canadian dates are coming for them. Also, does anyone know how big Rush really is in Europe? Maybe they just can't draw big crowds there long enough to sustain a full tour. That's what I always thought was the case with them. It's always seemed to me that Rush's popularity is mainly in America. Rush is one of the few universally loved bands that I think has a much bigger, more dedicated following in the US than in any other part of the world.

I think you're right. I would think that they would also be very popular in Canada too, though. I'm pretty sure they have a strong following in South America, well, in Brazil at least, too. That kinda thing is weird for a band though.

They must have a decent following in Germany, since the concert on R30 was filmed in Frankfurt.

Oh my god my brain fucking hurts.

If the "casual Maiden fan" doesn't know/give a fuck what Wrathchild, Iron Maiden, and Running Free are, how many songs does that leave that are more popular? Maybe 10? Hallowed Be Thy Name, Run to the Hills, Number of the Beast, The Trooper, 2 Minutes to Midnight, Wasted Years... that might be about it. Maybe a couple of others. If you're not advocating playing "the same generic hits for the billionth time", what ARE you advocating? Because I sure as shit know that the casual Maiden fan (if they're casual enough not to know Iron Maiden or Wrathchild) is NOT going to be ecstatic about them playing something like Revelations, Die With Your Boots On, Powerslave, or 22 Acacia Avenue.

Also, I've said this before (to Sanitarium78, the same person this is directed at now), that I think you're exaggerating the number of people at a Maiden show that are only familiar with 10 or a dozen songs. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure there are some, but no more than maybe 2,000 people in a 15,000-capacity crowd. I'm not saying everyone's a die-hard fan that owns everything they've ever put out, but at least a half-dozen albums, at least one of which is probably a reunion album, because unlike most old bands, people still actually really care about Maiden's new albums. 99% of all the Maiden fans I know (many of which I don't consider die-hard fans) have at least heard, if not (most of them) own the last couple of albums. If they didn't like them enough to familiarize themselves with any of the songs, is that really the band's fault? And should they really give the finger to their dedicated fans, who pay to see them every single tour, own all their albums, and buy all their merchandise?

Possibly, but maybe they just wanted to record it at a place they don't go to that often so the crowd reaction would be better.

i wouldnt be suprised honestly, the last 3 concert DVDs have been filmed outside of North America. Me being used to more of a metal crowd, I find Rush crowds very laid back except when they do the "HEY!"s of 2112 lol
