The Show
The setlist was to die for, fresh and origional. Biggest suprise to me was (MOD EDIT: SPOILERS).  The stage setup and lighting was great, but Atlanta's position on the edge of the Eastern time zone made it daylight until 9 so the lighting couldn't be fully enjoyed during the first set.  The crowd could have been more into it at times, but the crowd experience was still a 3 out of 5.  Overall the concert left me in such a good mood I gladly paid the $30 for the Shirt (Snake Hands shirt) and the $10 for the pin set.

Please avoid posting spoilers in the meetup section, guys and gals. I know this show is over but people seeing future shows still want to come in here and read about how the meetups went without knowing what songs were played.

VERY disappointed not to be able to make it to Malone's. Delayed getting on the road and by the time I got to Atl had to decide if I wanted to go ahead and get to the venue or put up with rush hour traffic. After having to put up with that disaster 3 weeks ago, I opted to just head straight for the amp.

Really hated to miss getting to meet everyone, especially my fellow Mississippians. (although I did see some MSU guys in the row in front of us) Glad everyone apparently had a great time. Kept looking for TRF t-shirts at the show, but never saw any...oh well.

Even without the pre-show fun, it was still a fantastic, memorable, etc etc experience, as every Rush show always is. And I got some great pics and video as well. Oh...wait a minute...cameras were NOT allowed, were they? Shame on me.... wink.gif

Hey! We made it home less than two hours ago after hanging around in Atlanta Thursday and today - shopping, visiting, etc.  
We really had a great time meeting everyone at Malone's and we're very glad the Mississippi crowd is bigger than we thought!
We hope we get to run into friendlyvoice sometime around these parts - who knows, we might know some people in common here!
It'd be nice if we could get those of us who are within reasonable distance from each other together again in the future but I know that's difficult with all our various other responsibilities. But hey - "Anything can happen!" (We were listening to "Prime Mover" on a mix of songs today and I couldn't remember the title! I was one tired  2.gif fan!)
Y'all take it easy and keep in touch on here! Later!


Sincerely,


skyswing

i haven't really had much internet access since the concert, but i got home the day after the concert, and i couldn't listen to rush until now, and even still, i'll never... NEVER forget the total awesomeness that rush has given me with my first concert. i wish i could go to all of their concerts from here on out, but i've gone and joined the navy.

and red barchetta, you're really cool.
