UPDATE - 4/8@12:14PM: The Summerfest date/venue that Rush.com had listed is incorrect. It should be July 3rd at the Marcus Amphitheater as originally expected. The Summerfest website will be making the official announcement later this afternoon. I'm gathering information on pre-sales as we speak and will be working on loading all the dates into the tour section over the next few days.

UPDATE - 4/8@8:02AM: Here's the official

Actually, I talked to the folks at summerfest and the actual date is Saturday July 3rd according to the nice lady I spoke with. Tickets are $77, $67, $54 and $34. They aren't sure why the RUSH website lists July 2nd as the date. Who know's, maybe they will be playing both nights and filming it for the DVD!

I'll be there!

Here's a blurb from JSONLINE. I was a little off on the prices, but still cheaper than the last tour...

Rush to headline Summerfest on July 3
By Jackie Loohauis-Bennett of the Journal Sentinel

Posted: April 8, 2010 3:28 p.m. |(1) Comments

Perennial rock favorite Rush will bring its Time Machine Tour to Summerfest at 7:30 p.m. July 3, festival officials announced Thursday.

Tickets are $77, $67, $47 and $32, excluding service charges. Tickets include admission to Summerfest.

Tickets will go on sale at 10 a.m. April 17 at the Marcus Amphitheater box office, Ticketmaster outlets, ticketmaster.com">ticketmaster.com, (800) 745-3000 (live agent) and (866) 448-7849 (automated).

Band members Geddy Lee, Alex Lifeson and Neil Peart will perform their classic hits and feature, for the first time, "Moving Pictures" album live in its entirety on stage. The 1981 album was the band's biggest seller. The trio also will perform new music planned for future release.

Rush has sold more than 40 million records worldwide and was inducted into the Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame in March.

Summerfest runs from June 24 through July 4 at Maier Festival Park.

I was just on the site and checked ticket prices. They are $45 and $65 dollars plus 26.50 in fees, so 71.50 and 91.50 respectively. less than I paid last time, if it holds true.

And the concert is on the 3rd. Rush has changed it on their site. So book the weekend and see Yes on Friday and Rush on Saturday.  Or Scorpions on Friday and Rush on Saturday 2.gif






Spelling edit there^

Yes is coming to my neck of the woods in June, and as much as I love them without Jon Anderson it's not Yes. Chris Squire is ruining their legacy.

Any Suggestions for meeting up?
Animation is supposed to play again, but it was too crowded to find anyone.

I'm already meeting up with a bunch of people from here and RIAB.  We're actually meeting a lot earlier.

and: at the last show, getting in the gate and down the ramp and into your seat a 1/2 hour before the show was a madhouse...so many people in that area, trying to buy shirts and stuff.  We probably want to meet a little earlier, and a little further away.

Animation, the Rush tribute band, is playing from 3:30 to 7:00, according to their site. This was the gathering spot last time.

Anyone want to do that again?  It's the Classic Rock stage, which is right by the Marcus.

It's odd that they are only showing 2 ticket prices right now. Usually there are 4 or 5 tiers of ticket prices at the Marcus. I think they may be only showing us a range of prices right now.

Sections:

Pit
Red
Yellow
Bleachers
Lawn

When I saw them on the second leg of S&A there were prices like that. I'm thinking that we won't see the real prices until the sale starts.

If they go with only two prices I'm going to rage. I'm a college student that doesn't have the $91.20 to shell out for yellow section seats! I had the bleachers last time and they were okay, but I was unprotected from rain and I was also stuck behind a pole which happened to be located directly between Lifeson and myself. I could hear him, but not see him most of the time.

I guess we'll find out on April 17th at 10am!

Thanks much, toonz. Looks like we in Milwaukee are getting the good side of Ticketbastard, if there is one. Yellow section, here I come!

It looks like the guy I talked to at Summerfest can't add. Just checked ticket prices on ticketmaster and it looks like the price quoted to me did not include the fees, which add $20 to each ticket. Highest ticket price is $92. Not the $79 he quoted me on the phone.

Oh well, I'm still going with Best Available!

Yeah I saw that on the website. Oh well, $77.90 still isn't that bad.
