April 18, 1981

Municipal Auditorium

Mobile, AL


Max Webster were scheduled to open for Rush on this night, but they were a no show. Alex Lifeson recalls:

“I remember pulling into that gig and all the guys were sitting on the grass and they looked so despondent. 'Kim's had enough. He can't take it anymore. He was on a flight this morning and went home.'"

And without much fanfare, this is where the Max Webster story ends.

Until 1990.
