get together for some bears would be nice...
there are allready comming rushfans from canada and even from russia!!!
if your only comming for one show, I would recommend the second show, because the acoustic in the ahoy arena is verry loud. i saw them in rotterdam with the R30-tour and the sound was great, but it shouldn't be been louder because otherwise we were deaf!
hope to see you there!!!   trink38.gif  trink39.gif

I'm going to this one too, if all goes well. Got my ticket, just need to sort out flights and staying information.
Never seen Rush live before, so I'm really excited. Also, good to know there'll be someone to camp out with at the front of the stage biggrin.gif

hey communist olga,

wauw, it's awesome that you will come all the way from russia to holland to see rush live!!!!
I'll be togheter with arrowsnake, we're comming from belgium...not to much rushfans over here also, butt lucky for us we only need to take a train to rotterdam.

here is a link to some hotels in the area of the ahoy arena.
www.bookings.nl (choose rotterdam, area ahoy and you will get a list of 30 hotels)

hope to see you there!!!! grtz     trink38.gif  2.gif

I'll be staying at the cheapest place I can find, so no candid Rush sightings for me, unfortunately. sad.gif
Anyone else coming to Rotterdam just for the night and then going? I really might just stay up all night and make the best of it after the concert.

Wow - lots of activity in this thread now - we are getting closer and CLOSER!

Olga - my crew will be in Rotterdam for just one night only but have pretty good hotel arrangements.  Chances are we'll stay awake all night and party - then choo-choo train back to Amsterdam the next morning.

If you plan on staying awake all night you might have lots of company.

Groovy. All-nighters are kickass.
I have a plane to catch at around 1 pm from Schiphol the next day, so I might just tag along with you guys if you're going away early.
Any idea if there are any trains running from Rotterdam straight to Schiphol? Because that'll probably save time and give the opportunity to see more of Rotterdam, I've heard it's terrific. No sense in rushing back (no pun intended) to Amsterdam if you only spend 1-2 hours there before having to go to the airport.

EDIT.
Also, all those Rotterdam-savvy: can you tell me if this hostel here is close to Ahoy or not?

I really don't want to hoof it through half the town if I go back at late at night or something sad.gif

Man, this is a 15 hour flight for me.  There is no way I am flying coach for 15 hours!  I'll have to make sure I can get a first or business class ticket first before I confirm.  If I can't make it, can someone please bring me back some Amsterdam shrooms?
