We're am leaving here at around 7 tommorow morning.  It's a 5-6 hour drive from Middle Tennesse to St.Louis.  We are stayin @ the Hampton Inn that's closest to the venue.  

That could be a good meetup place after the show!

I don't think you can leave your car at D & Bs...I don't think they have a shuttle service. confused13.gif

And It's a little far to walk it.....specially after  trink38.gif  trink38.gif  trink38.gif

Original Fan was asking me, and I wasn't sure. I thought it might be a 15 minute walk to the venue. I used to work in the building directly on the parking lot as the venue and we used to walk to D&B's for lunch.

I'll see you guys at D&B's.

I guess I'll roll in between 5:30p-6:30p. I'm coming by myself, and I would be bored wandering around for all that time before the concert.

Damn that was a long Drive!  6 hours from Middle Tennessee.  But Had a good mix of music.  A Rush, Dream Theater, David Bowie, Beatles mix!

We will probably get to D&B around 4 or so.  I will see how many seats/tables we might be able to get together.  As I said I couldn't get anything reserved so hopefully there will be a section open.

Was that not a kick a@# show!!!!! It was so great to meet everyone... it was so surreal, because I'm so used to seeing your cyber selves. Rush fans are the best!!! My head is throbbing, so I'll catch you guys tomorrow.

Oh yeah, the post-show let down...  fists crying.gif

Kids had a great time - wish I could have hung with you guys post-show but you know how it goes with needing to be a *good role model* for them (especially my very impressionable daughter).  wink.gif

I've got a bunch of pictures - some actually came out pretty good!  Will post them a bit later tonight when I have more time.

It was so great to meet you guys and get faces for names!  Mystic, I think I owe you some $ for that blue popsicle shooter, hon... laugh.gif

I was there fourth row dead center.  Never been that close ever, but that record will be broken tomorrow in Cincy as I will be 2nd row Pit in front of Alex.

Weirdest thing for me was having to turn to look to the right to see what Geddy was doing, then back to the left to see what Al was doing, and did that all night.  From that close if you are watching one of them, even Neil, you can't see what the other two are doing.  Not used to that, but I got used to it!  Really felt the heat at the end of OLV and enjoyed watching the facial expressions of the guys, especially when communicating with each other.  

Terrific show as always.  Lot of energy for a third show in four nights for them, including 400 miles from Milwaukee to St. Louis in about 20 hours.

VERY happy with the weather.  I got into STL on Friday and the heat and humidity were oppressive.  MUCH better day on Saturday for the show.

No...the popcicle was my treat and my pleasure!!   wub.gif
Those were YUMMY!! yes.gif

So glad to hear the kids had a good time!  I know what you mean about the 'impressionable' ones....that why we don't bring our kids...YET!  Soon, probably bring them to the next tour, they should be old enough by then.

We definately had a good buzz by the end of the night...morning...whatever! yes.gif   HAD A BLAST!!

I have a few good shots, but most of them were blurry....below is the photo bucket link.  Hope to see everyone elses' soon!
