Rush v. Dirk, Pratt & Lerxst

Well folks, it's a week and a half until opening night so I came to say goodbye and realized we could use a new thread. It's been nearly a decade's long hope of mine to see the opening night of a Rush tour and next Friday that becomes reality. Going to be staying out of here to avoid all the rumored setlists because you never know when one could be the right one. I'll be travelling all day Saturday the 8th, but will have a full report on the 9th for everyone!

This will be my 29th time seeing them but I know Ytse and Tick have seen them more.  Can't wait to see how they incorporate the string section.

Feel for you, the nearest show is 2 and a half hours away and tickets start at 80-something bucks.
Perhaps you should ask bosk to reverse the "e" and "a" in the second half of your user name.

Me too, but considering my show is in the first few weeks, we should get him before his voice is wearing down over the course of the tour.  Hopefully.

I don't think that we will see more european dates. Guess you will have to travel to see them live. Just like me.
I can't sit and wait/hope that they will visit Denmark sometime in the future. They are not getting any younger. So in october I will fly to the US to see them in Newark & Brooklyn. Next year I will catch them in London, Birmingham, Sheffield and Berlin :metal :metal

So my buddy is driving in Manchester NH, (He lives there) and he's next to Verizon Wireless Arena and sees Tony Geranios (Jack Secret for all the Rush nerds like me) walk across the street so Rush must have rented out the arena so they can run through their setlist with the stage show.  My friend is now wanting to find out where Rush is staying.

We stalked Geddy on the Power Windows tour up in Maine.  He was gracious enough to stop and talk to us for 5 minutes.  I was so nervous I forgot I had a pen in my pocket to sign my ticket stub with. :lol

I guess that means Rush is there (haven't been keeping up with that.) That means the dress rehearsal is tomorrow night.

I have at least one of every tourbook except for 2112, the white A Farewell To Kings and the new one.



You got me on openers though. Just Test for Echo and Vapor Trails for me.


I just hung my consolation prize (#73 of 302) on the wall last night. I may decide to sell the book though (Haven't unsealed it just in case.) I haven't quite figured that out yet. I just wanted the signed litho.

Have fun on Friday. Openers sure are special.

Another funny story ytse.  I have a friend who is a pharmacist in Manchester NH.  Some guy told him he's just started a tour and needs something to help him sleep while on the buss.  It's too bumpy he told him.  My buddy asked if he was with Rush and he told him yes.  He pulled out his ticket for Friday and the guy told him to give him his name and he will have two great seats for him waiting at the box office under my bud's name.

How cool is that?!

The one thing I really love about the first show is I have no temptation of look on the "Interwebs" to see the set list.  I'm going in like a teen in the 80's.
