I'm so glad they're coming back through St. Paul on this tour.  For awhile there it looked like they were going to skip over us and I was considering driving over to Milwaukee, but now St. Paul is good to go.  I'm really looking forward to this show, I'm definitely going to get my tickets early this time for better seats; last time I waited until 2 weeks before the show and ended up with awful seats way up in the club level.

Who else is planning on this show?  Anyone up for a pre-show get together?

I'll be attending this show.  I say them at the St. Paul show from the first S&A leg, but this tiem, I'll be keeping my eye out for the sale.  I'm trying to score front row tickets - I have the money  wink.gif .

I was front row for this show back in September and it was the best Rush show I have ever seen.
The Xcel is a great place for a show. I made a banner requesting sticks and Gump came down at intermission and handed me a pair.....what a moment.

Last I heard, March 1st is the on sale date for St. Paul tickets.  Ticketmaster doesn't have the date listed anymore, but when the tour announcement came in, Ticketmaster had the date listed as March 1st.

RIAB site has ticketmaster's presale for this show listed as February 29th. There is also a radio presale listed there.

Keep chekcing in there to see when the MusicToday presale is and general ticket sales start.

General ticket sales start on March 1st at 10 AM, as I previously speculated.  Music Today presale starts February 26 at 10AM.  KQRS Presale starts on February 29 at 10AM, but there's no password listed yet.  Ticketmaster seems to be on February 29 as well.  So your best bet is Music Today, as it starts 3 days earlier than the rest.

Just a reminder that the Music Today presale for St. Paul starts tomorrow, February 26 at 10:00 AM Central Time.  Here's the link to the Music Today site if you don't already have it.  Make sure you register at the site before you buy tickets.

So, I just did the Music Today presale and it was a pain in the ass.  I first tried for Floor R tickets, but they said they were all gone.  So then I clicked on Floor L tickets and I got one for Floor L, Row 31, Seat 12.  Not a bad ticket, so I decided to add it to my cart.  I go to my cart, there's the ticket.  I wanted to change the shipping type to Priority Mail rather than UPS, so I clicked Priority Mail, and my tickets disappear; my cart is empty.  I then spent 15 minutes trying to get those tickets back.  Every time I went to get Floor L tickets, it said they were all gone.  After cursing at the computer several times and trying different sections and throwing back the awful seats they gave me, I tried Floor L again, and miraculously, I managed to get the same seats I was promised before.  This time it actually worked though, my tickets were in my basket, but this time I didn't make the fatal mistake of changing shipping type.  So I know have 1 ticket for Floor L, Row 31, Seat 12.  Not the best seats in the house, but still better than the crappy seats I had last time (far right back corner of the arena at the very top row).  This time I might actually be able to see the guys' faces.

As of 11:13 CST...they are still selling.  The BEST I have seen on the floor are row 12.  Keep trying and rows 22, 21, 18,16 and 12 pop up.

I took two for row 16 before I saw the 12 angry.gif

There are a lot of Row 25 tickets now. Looks like I struck out for now but I have a potential ticket connection in St. paul that I can explore, too.

If anyone got something they don't want or get an upgrade from, please post them here and maybe that'll work for me too.

Certainly not like last time...Two inthe center, row 9. Oh well.

I got a nice ticket for the show on the first section, row 4, LL left side... however my wife doesn't care and my buddies couldn't go this time.

I wouldn't mind have a couple beers before hand with some dedicated RUSH fans... let me know where and when, and I'll buy a round. trink39.gif

I don't go to St. Paul often, is there a decent bar near the Xcel Energy Center?  A meet up would be cool.
