Hey everyone! I gotta fully and completely agree with what Ken the Masked Drummer says. it was an awesome show, and IMO Rush is really sounding better that they ever have (both musicianship and mix quality). It helps the PA was good & clean from where we sat.

It was even more AWESOME meeting so many cool RUsh heads! I've never been to Rush with "strangers" before -- yet it was like we all had so much in common from the get-go.

All of you who could make it up to Kenny's pad were really neat -- I mean, total strangers coming up to some strangers unknown abode in downtown Detroit... lots of good trust going on in this fine group.

Next time I bet Ken will even have furniture!

As far as the group pic & concert pics I took, I'll post them for all once I get back to a PC Thursday or Friday.

what an amazing night of making kewl new friends, incridble music, and an inspiring atmosphere.

A special thanks to Geddy's Mullet for helping me & Ken get seats together, and thus making this such an awesome time!

...did I mention everyone and everything was AWESOME!

Peace out all!

Bill from Pittsburgh

What a show, what an adventure getting to the Joe.  Incredible night topped by meeting "rushgirl" and finally "lrf80".  The vibe of the whole night was way up there.  It was amazing that Rush was so on, being a back to back show.  Thanks for the hugs.  I can't wait for the next event.  I hope to meet more of y'all.  Glad for krlowe to score some tickets, from TM!

Love to all the TRF'ers. 2.gif

We're back in the UP and had another AWESOME time at Rush.  The show rocked and it was great to see all my fellow TRF'ers.  Crazy at work today but will report further when time allows.

I just wanted to say that it was great meeting the crew from TMD's meet-up.  The whole night was truly magical, one of the best of my entire life.  I'm not used to going in to a stranger's house and having everyone welcome me like, shall we say, a "long awaited friend!"  It was super-special and I'll remember it FOREVER.

Thanks to TMD for hosting the meet-up and to the rest of you for being so darned wonderful!  wub.gif   2.gif fans are the best!

Gig pics coming soon!

Hey All... it took some prodding from The Masked Drummer, but here are my pics and vids from the Detroit concert. The video is kinda long at first, and the audio is terrible.. but, oh well...


it was SO COOL to meet everyone... can we do this again real soon?

Take care!

Hey ladirushfan80 --

You mean this one? I thought it a little dark, and we lost someone on the right, but hey, it ain't that bad after all!

A couple friends were at the Rush concert in Philly Saturday - they txt's and called (Red Barchetta on a cell phone just isn't the same)... and they had an AWESOME time just like us!

One guy said "It was great, even considering they're usually great.  The band was really, really tight, Neil's solo was a 10-minute fireworks show that was impressive even for him."

WOW... RIGHT ON!

jd

Kenny - thanks for tweaking the first one!
