sad.gif  Awww!!!  Now I REALLY wish I was going!  Well, Mohegan Sun is a casino, and the venue is inside the casino - it's really a beautiful place.  The arena is on the smaller side - it holds a max of like 10K people - but that's kewl, cause it makes the show a little more intimate.  There really aren't any bad or obstructed view seats either smile.gif

**Edited to include:  You should really try and make it to The Granite Grady...it's in NH, not too far from CT new_thumbsupsmileyanim.gif**

ill be there.  I live about 15 mins away so its just a hop skip.  We should try to coordinate a meet-up either before or after the show.  Plenty of bars in the general area, and good food at the casino.

the venue is pretty good.  Whever you sit, you will be pretty close.  I sat in the 2nd level last year and it was the closests ive ever been.  The two other times were outdoor venues so i was basically on the lawn.

Unfortunately we can't swing that show, mainly for monetary reasons, but also it being during the week, and that we have to take that Friday off for The Granite Grady, too....

Awww :-(  It sucks that you won't be able to make it to CT.  :-(

Rob and I are hoping to get to Mohegan, but I haven't seen any sale or pre-sale information on this venue... just the date of the show.

Grrrrrrr.

If I recall, this one sold out fast last time.  :-(

i found that the neil's bass was up a little high last time, it was drowning out alex.  Mansfield sounded pretty good last year.  It was so cool actually being able to see them playing the notes though...since i had been so far away before.  Im going to try to sneak in the camera this time.  Ill have to wear my tophat. tongue.gif

  smile.gif say O'Baterista, I was wondering if you could try to get a single for me if you have a connection because I really want to be up close for this one - my first RUSH show. The other couple of shows I can maybe miss being up close but I have to see at least one. I can pay you back asap and could spend up to say $300.00 if I have to. Btw, are you going to Manchester, if so may I catch a ride? 2.gif

i can try my best to get you a ticket, but dont count on it cause its hit or miss especially with a popular show.  If you cant get a ticket for the regular sale, i can try to ask for one.  Good luck!  

Where will you be staying?  I will most likley have room for one more if i do go to manchester.  Are you also going to holmdel or saratoga?  Im just looking at the dates and you said you were going to a few shows.  I dont think im going to holmdel, but may go to saratoga.

If you manage to get a good pair that might even be easier but a great single for me would be really good if yo can swing it. I am not going to Manchester now as I am going to PAGSCON and that kicks off on the Friday evening , the same time as the Manchester show. I am not sure where I will be staying on the night of the show at MS but I note there is a reasonable hotel quite close. Any details on good places to see in your area and in Conneticutt in general would be most welcomed. 2.gif  trink39.gif

well MS is right in uncasville/montville CT.  i dont really know that area too great, i know norwich which is right there as well, but there isnt much to see there.  If you like hiking there is a nice place i could steer you.  Im not sure what kind of time you are going to have.

although it will be warm by then, so maybe you like the beach? Theres plenty of that within 20-25 min.

Excellent I would love to go to the beaches in the area. Here's an update; I am considering going to Saratoga because all going to plan, I arrive in NYC on Thurs July 3. The venue I imagine would be quite close and I note that you might be going? If so should we get a "pair" of tickets and are you going by car???? 2.gif  trink39.gif I hear that Saratoga Springs is a nice area.
