Tickets go on sale Sat. 2/9 at 10am (PST). Cost is $44-$91. I think most people camp on the grounds which ranges from $40-$60 depending on what kind of accommodations you want (e.g. showers, fancy real toilets, outlets).

Gorge seating chart

I’m not a fan of the gorge and it has been a long time since I’ve been over there (Neil Young/Pearl Jam – 1994?). I seem to recall it was all festival seating (whatever they call it). But by the looks of the, “seating chart” there are actual seats for Rush.

And… After having read the, “Presale schedule and instructions, heres your guide” thread, I’m feeling a little anxious with ticket buying. I’m a ticket virgin and have no idea what to do or what to expect. I don’t know if there’s going to be a presale or how to go about finding this stuff out. If anyone is wise to the ways of ticket buying, pass the info on please!

Can’t say as I’m dying to go the gorge but I do want to see Rush more than anything.

Well, I live in the Reno area, but usually travel to the Pac Northwest to see RUSH with my high school buddies. They're getting me a ticket, all I have to do is make my way north.

Haven't decided if I'll drive or fly, or where I'll stay. I see some of you plan on camping. How does that work at the Gorge? Are reservations necessary, and is there a wicked fee? Any info/tips would be appreciated.

I would venture to say that you don't need reservations for regular camping. You may need one for the primo camping though. I'd call ahead of time (or get your friends too since they live in the area) and make sure. They secure quite a large area for campers. I think, anyway. It has been a long time I was there last.

Turns out my friend doesn't have a problem with driving home at 2am so I don't have to worry about the camping issue.

Newb to the board here....

Picked up my tix last week.  They'd been on sale for awhile and was surprised to see Sec A Row 24 seats available.  Tix must not be selling as much as anticipated.  But goodie for me...picked up 3 tix for me, the wife, and my 7 Yo's first concert.  He really wanted to go after watching Live In Rio with me.


Cant wait...The Gorge is awesome place to see a concert (cept the whole trying to leave thing smile.gif)

First: Hi!

Second: WHAT?! Row 24?! My friend bought tickets the day they went on sale and he got row 33. Who did you get your tickets through?

Lastly: I dread leaving the gorge parking lot too. It's horrible.
