Man...seeing that pic really makes it burn that I passed on attending.

:banghead:

Why man why did you pass?
8+ hour drive, and I had seen them twice

No excuse! I drove from north Georgia to Toronto, then on to Montreal to see them! Besides, seeing them at every stop still wouldn't have been enough!
Yeah, I know.  Big regrets about it... :(

That's the spirit, man! :cheers: Would love to hear more stories from that trip...

R40 was an unbelievable experience for me. I flew in 9,297(google)km from Frankfurt to LA. I had no ticket when I first booked this flight, and somehow strangely a "TRF Angel" appeared. Right out of that nowhere I ended up somewhere, in Inglewood... Last show... 3rd row... Geddy's side!! I still can smell The Forum!!! :smoke:
The greatest and most important Rock'n'Roll trip in my life! :rush:

Thanks for the ticket, Gina!!!

You go, Grey!  Those who weren't there can write about it.  Those who were there can sit back and smile!!
Although I have to admit, my confusion rests not so much with how I got to the LA concert, but rather, with how I got back to my hotel room from the desolate parking lot of Steve Harvey's Chicken Shack!!  Thank you Tombstone Mountain, wherever you might be!!

Lots of great memories, so glad I got to go with my sister to the Maverik Center in SLC  :lol: .  That was my 3rd show and we sat on Geddy's side of the stage. :clap:   Took a picture of the screen with the R40 logo and have used it on my phone and other places.

I didn't get in on a lot of the Periscope threads but the ones I did were so much fun.  I seem to remember chatting with Tom (some trivia about Absalom Absalom??) and I made sure after I had seen the show here, I watched as many as I could.  Got to see most of the LA show, it was very emotional when Neil came out from behind the drums (he never does that) and they took their final bows.. :(

I talked to Tombstone here a couple of months back, he’s around...busy guy, being the sheriff, mayor and chief magistrate of Goatnut and all.

Took the train back from New York on Wednesday.  Went by the Prudential Center in Newark.  The R40 show there was my last Rush show.  After sitting right behind Michael Moore at the show, my final Rush memories are somewhat stained.  Probably should have headed out to the LA show to make up for it.

I was there, and while the seats I had were not amazing the performance indeed was.  Xanadu, Working Man, and Red Barchetta were especially awesome that night

I’ll never forget the Newark show.  They were in top form that night, and I finally got to hear Xanadu played live.  Losing It was a special treat, too.
