Depends on what part of Europe.
Rush sells out arenas in the UK, Germany, and Holland, and they tour in Sweeden, Italy and here and there. They are not popular across all parts of Europe, but they have been touring there regularly since the 70's.
Although there is no doubt they are far more well regarded in North America than anywhere else in the world.
