    Default Rush!!!

    So I went to my first Rock concert last night and it was to see the awesome threesome RUSH! Defiantly worth the stupidly hight ticket price. They played about 35 or so songs including Moving Pictures start to finish with our stopping. Just one amazing show. Was anyone else there last night or have ever seen RUSH live?

    They are well worth the ticket price. Which are out this world, I bought mine from ticketmaster so face value it was 640 for a pair. That was like early bird floor seats that came with some stuff but still.

    Yes in '82 & '85 they were one of the greats in the super '80's rock show concert era along with Triumph another great 3-man band.

    Brandon,

    I went last night also, it was an unexpected surprise It was an awesome show. Those three old guys can rock, and they look as if they were really enjoying themselves.

    I have say, hearing Rush play Moving Pictures straight through live is very impressive.

    It was loud and the sound quality got better a few songs into their set.

    YYZ is probably my favorite song from last night.

    Scott,


    Cool where did you sit last night?

    It was a great show and I'm really glad I finally got to see them live. I don't know if i can pick one song but I will say I'm not really liking the newer stuff but I will give it more of a shot when the full album comes out.

    Section 105 on Alex's side of the stage.

    I was not digging the newer stuff as much either but the classic were awesome.

    Ok I was section 3 floor on Alex's side. We were about 15 rows away dame cool. Take a look at the pic below and you will know why tubes sound so good when listening at home.

    Saw them two weeks ago in New York. Fantastic.
    Good music, a good source, and good power can make SDA's sing. Tubes make them dance.

    Saw them back in 84 or 85 during the Grace Under Pressure Tour. 16.00 per ticket. I remember because Janey and I were so poor back then that we had to borrow the money from her parents. Only time they've performed in Hawaii and it was a great show.
