I just bought a ticket to this show.  I will be in Modesto on business over the weekend of Aug. 4th - 5th and saw that Rush would be in Sacramento (Marysville) on the 4th.  

I couldn't pass it up.  I got section 2 row 14 center.

Anybody getting together before the show?

There's really no place close to the venue to get together.  Last tour, we had a meet up at Thunder Valley Casino in Lincoln, CA.  It was nice, they have a beautiful bar in the middle of the place called "the falls bar".  We meet there around 4pm then headed to the venue around 6pm.  It's about 15-20 minute drive to the venue from there.  If anyone is interested then let me know.

I'm interested but not sure if I can make it that early.

Will be working most of the day on Saturday and probably won't be able to leave Modesto until 4:00 PM at the earliest.  Then it's about 1.75 hour drive to the venue.

How late do you think you'll be hanging around the Casino?

Just checked Google maps and it says the casino is 23 miles/35 minutes from the venue.  Is Google overestimating and is 15-20 more accurate?

Coming from Modesto, the Casino is a bit out of your way.  When you hit Sacramento, you'd have to go east on I-80 up to hwy 65, then head north.  If you go straight to the venue, you would just continue north on I-5 through Sacramento and then pick up 99 north to 70 north.  

As far as distance from Casino to venue, I may have under-estimated the time.  I take the back roads and miss all the traffic.  If you can get over to Pleasant Grove Rd and go north, it turns into Forth Mile Rd north, which leads right to the venue.  You miss all the traffic coming in from hwys 65 and 70.  

I'll don't think I'll be there much later than 6pm.  I like to get to the venue about an hour early so I'm not "RUSHED" getting to my seat..  wink.gif

We could change the meeting place to somewhere in North Sacramento if that would work better for everyone.  But once you leave Sacramento going north to Marysville, there ain't nothin' out there.  If others have thoughts then let me know.

You are right, it's closer to 30-35 minutes.  That is the long route taking hwy 65.  Take the back road and hit the venue from the south and it's even quicker (with very little traffic getting in).

Thanks for the info and directions.

Actually, the casino sounds great and would love to come by for at least one drink before the show.  It will all depend on what time I get out of the office on Sat. afternoon.

My seat is on the floor in section 2, row 14.  Sounds like you've been to this venue... how are those seats?

The floor is a pit (so it's below the stage).  I was in section 3, row 15 for Vapor Trails (16 rows total on the floor) and then for R30 I was section 103 row 3.  The 101-105 sections you are even with the stage, so your view of everything is a little better, and your just behind the floor section..  This tour I'll be in 104 row 5.  Anything 101-105 and lower is great, very close, you can see every move the boys make..

Excellent!  Glad to hear these seats will give me a good view.  Sounds like this venue is setup similar to the Tampa Amphitheatre.  Orchestra sections up front are in a pit.  I had VIP seating for the Tampa show, level 100 center-center right in front of the mixing boards.  Great view but a ways back from the stage so you couldn't see facial expressions.

Sure hope I can make it to the casino and meet up.  Still haven't met anyone from the forum yet!    sad.gif

I'm not getting a ton of responce on the meet up thing..  If we don't get more folks interested, then we can just head for the venue and maybe meet up in the parking lot.  We will see how the next week goes in this thread.

I mentioned the Casino meet up at the beginning of this thread..    I was hoping for a bigger response, but meeting in the parking lot is fine with me.  We still have a couple of weeks, so we'll see how it goes.

Hello, so I found some tickets for sale in section 1.  Can anyone tell me if seat #1 is in the center or on the side? My girlfriend and I are driving down from Seattle for this show.  We liked it so much the first time, need to see it again!

Thanks,
Dan
