I'll be at this show with my brother.  We're in section 304; just a few rows in front of the lawn. 

My brother would only go if I got the cheap seats.  Since I go to most shows by myself, I figured I'd compromise on this show and get him the cheap seats so I'd have a "date"!  Aren't I a NICE sister?!?!?   wacko.gif

amazing show not a single disappointment that I can think of I was enthralled for most of the show jamming out with reckless abandon
screwed up my neck some more because of this but it was worth it because jamming out to some Rush is unavoidable I just gotta pump my fist and get down to the sweet beats! Alex was on fire his guitar tone had so much sonic power to it I mean the overall sound was amazing
It was definitely top notch entertainment,
hopefully somebody can post a set list up here for others interested in knowing this info.
The 1st song they played for the encore I wasn't familiar with so I'm still wondering what album that song was from.








*SPOILER!!*






















One Little Victory is from Vapor Trails.   unsure.gif  am i allowed to say this in this thread?  :scrolls up to add *spoiler* space:

glad to hear you enjoyed the show, too.   cheer.gif  i had a great time. common001.gif
hope your neck feels better soon. rose.gif sad.gif

thx for your support I need it because my neck I think is seriously messed up hopefully it's nothing serious I think I might just have to restrain from head banging for a short while  cool.gif  
I appreciate you telling me what album that song was from because I felt sorta stupid for not knowing that because I consider myself a devoted Rush fan but apparently I don't know their whole catalog of songs
I'm hearing a lot of good praise about this show not only from the fans on this thread but also from over hearing people talk about it after the show.
My guess is that there were some Dbacks players there too because they had an off day yesterday and I heard Randy Johnson is a buddy of Geddy's that and Bob Melvin (the manager for the snakes) and a few of the players are big fans I'm sure so that's what makes me think that they might of went to the show.
alright that's all I got for now keep on rocking!  1022.gif

The show was great.  Perfect weather and a good energy throughout.
Favorite part of the show this time was watching Al play Hope.
He showed so much emotion with this song and it's one of my favs.

Yea that part had a lot of soul put into it by Alex the whole show I thought was much better than last time they visited Phx but they were both pretty amazing shows that it's hard to say which was better who here went to last years performance in Phx also if so which did you like better this time or last time they came?

First leg I sat 5th row center and was a great show.
Second time around I sat 5th row 104 and was another great show, although I noticed a few Geddy lyric screw ups, but they covered it up nicely where it was hard to tell.
I'm from NY and always love seeing Rush at the Cricket.
