The Tampa Bay Times’ Jay Cridlin published a review of Rush’s show on May 24th:

It’s a guesstimate, but scanning Tampa’s Amalie Arena on Sunday night, I’d say a solid third of the sold-out crowd of 14,827 was wearing Rush T-shirts. “It’s not retro, it’s original!” I overheard one T-shirted fan emphatically attest to another. Who would doubt it? Rush’s legendarily obsessive fans live and die with the band, and you just know many have a drawer full of faded tees back at home. Rush may not be cool, you see, but for 40-plus years, they’ve never gone out of style. So it’s no wonder they all lifted their lighters and roared with approval as the Canadian prog-rock icons walked back a four-decade career in what might be their final show ever in Florida.
