Isn't it more fun to see them outside in the summer?  I saw them at Polaris once and it was awesome, I wonder if that venue was already booked or something?

Polaris is no more. Closed

Wow that sucks, I hope you guys have another outdoor venue for occasional summer shows!  Nothing quite says summer like an outdoor rock concert.

Germain Ampitheatre was a decent place for a concert but Rush is built for arena shows because of all their lighting/effects so I am estatic to see them at the Wide.  

When it was built Polaris was fine but since everthing has exploded around there it is much more beneficial to develop the land for residential/commercial purposes.  Also noise level statues were coming more and more into play with local residents and too much of a hassle for acts.

Current outdoor venue for concerts are Crew Stadium (Rock on the Range in May) and now Huntington Park (DMB is playing there this summer).

Does anyone know exactly WHICH seating configuration will be used for this show?  I see End Stage 360, End stage 270, End stage 180, Half House seating...good Lord.  Some ticket sites show one config, others show another.

I got tickets today and the configuration I saw is that the stage is just about 1/2 way down the floor (end stage 180) but not in the round so even my front row Section 206 seats are going to be awesome for $52/ticket.

Well I gave up on Ticketmaster for this show.  Guess I will try for Pittsburgh on Monday.

Best seats they offered during my 45 minute try was sections 217, 216, 203, and 204.  For kicks I tried a premium package and it was section 114 Row B.  Over $300 for that?  Are you kidding me?

I noticed that TM changed the seating arrangment on the ticket search screen.  

It has been a "half-house" until this morning, now it is an "end-stage" or full house set up that pops up on the ticket search screen.

ANyont know which it will be?  It will certainly affect ticket selctions as well as probably tick off some people who already have tics.

BTW, I have purchased 2 tics.  Singles and their locations with the different seating arrangments will determine which one I keep for myself and which one I sell.

Keep in mind I willlikely be selling one.

Just letting you guys know in case you didn't know already that they changed the seating arrangement. Since the tickets were selling well, they pushed the stage back a row or whatever. You know how it used to be in line with sections 103 and 115? Well its now in line with the sections behind those. So yeah.... I have Section 105, row A tickets....pretty good but I thought they'd be closer, you know. It's just kind of sucks because I couldn't do a lot of the pre-sales due to class this year. And on rushisaband.com I read these stories of people scoring row 6 tickets off MusicToday but I just couldn't stick around to keep searching because I had class. Really sucks. 2007, I had row 6 Geddy side seats. You know, it'll still be fun, though. There's always next time right? (praying there will be a next time)

I'm staying at the Drury Inn I think it is..only a block or two from the arena.

Liddybuck:  Right next to the Drury Inn (I can see the top floors of it from my office window) is the Hyatt Regency Columbus that I worked at when I was in college.  This year marks its 30th Anniversary and every month until next April they are setting aside certain slow-dates and selling rooms at a rate of only $30.  You can friend Hyatt Regency Columbus on FB and get notification of when the dates are for August (should be announced right at the end of July).  If you are lucky they may announce that 8-29-10 is a $30 rate day.

Everyone else:  Any thoughts on where all of us Columbus TRF attendees are wanting to meet up prior to the show.  I am taking my 11 year old daughter to her first ever concert (so excited) so anyplace that is 21 just to get in won't work for us.

Wife and I and friends will be attending.  Not sure where the tailgate or hangout will be, but I'll post it when I know.

Crap...missed the $30 rate.  Looks like they do it a few days every month no matter what day you book for?  Hard to tell.  Will check it in July.

TT, I was at Nationwide last year for the Police show and went to Bucca DiBeppo but was wondering if you have some suggestions for a hangout or tailgate area since you live and work there?

Frog, Bear and Wild Boar is one place to go (just outside of the Arena doors..right above Bucca)

Or two buildings north of the Arena is the 'R' Bar.

See you all there....

I remember that place now that you mentioned it.  Sounds like a good place to me.  I'm sure there will be tons of fans there as well.
