Got a room at the Excalibur (map says 10 minute walk to the MGM?  Hope that's right...I've not spent much time in Vegas) through Travelocity.  Two nights for right around $150.  Not bad at all.  Of course, I'll be flying solo, so that's for single occupancy.  Gives me a little more money to buy VIP for the concert!   653.gif  new_thumbsupsmileyanim.gif

The Excalibur is katty corner from the MGM.

I've been to Vega once...know where the MGM is...so what can you tell me about the day of concert?

Is it just a frenzy of RUSH fans, all over the place, waiting to explode inside the arena???
Osage

I went to MGM in 07.  We stayed across the street at the Trop--it was under $100 for the room.

We were at the Trop for this show and while it was ok, I would choose another hotel if I had the option - I was disappointed with the musty odor throughout.


Wishing we could make it again, - only if the planets line up just right.

Anyone see where they are planning on a "mini" RushCon in Vegas the day of the show?  That sealed the deal for me.  Hubby even gave me his blessing!  Guess I'm hitting VEGAS!   1022.gif  1022.gif  trink39.gif  trink39.gif

Where? I live in Vegas. If I find out where, I'll be there for sure!!!!

Looks like they are planning on having it at the MGM as well...

Hey Pedro it's me liz! Remember me.  I checked out MGM and it's booked for the weekend and I'm all how ???? Cause Lady GAGA performs the night before on the 13th and the rooms are all booked now.  Other hotels are showing good rates.  Well I haven't missed a Vegas show yet.  Hope to see you  rocking the rUSh out!  2.gif  common001.gif   trink39.gif

Those Photos were doctored!!!!

bekloppt.gif  trink39.gif

i want to go soooo bad!   653.gif

i won't know for sure until June tho scared.gif

Yes it is me Liz Daveyt's bud ..what photos were doctored?

not your photos, Lizzie no.gif

pedro's just reliving his defense strategy pertaining to ANY alleged photos that may or may not have been taken in vegas in previous years.

ya know,,,,ones that might have involved crowds of questionable acquaintances gathered in his hotel room for undisclosed purposes

or, or maybe snapshots of pedro and several incriminating cohorts roving TheStrip well after midnight

or maybe 8x10 black n white glossies of him in some underground club surrounded by promiscuous dope fiends

who knows? confused13.gif  he's awfully quick to defend those photos tho, isn't he?

maybe he's not reliving it.  dazed025.gif  maybe he's rehearsing it.   wink.gif

there's only 1 way to find out   wink.gif   2.gif  trink39.gif

Oh I  get it now he went underground  cool10.gif.  pretty quick  I must say quick about some photos out there goodpost.gif   dazed025.gif lizzie is wanting for the  common001.gif  music.gif and sunshine th1245.gif  653.gif  2.gif with the suzi cosmo.gif  and on the road again  biggrin.gif with that starbucks  patron.gif oh that's not SBUX

patron.gif <> sbux no.gif

reminds me of vegas tho yes.gif

in fact, the patron.gif = digi = DigitalMan  1287.gif  and th1245.gif = Sundog  wub.gif

remember drinkin patron with Digi and Sundog @ NY NY?   653.gif

unsure.gif is that where we were?  that has to be the MOST confusing casino EVER! scared.gif

but i remember the best parts new_thumbsupsmileyanim.gif

Alright, that's enough of that! Don't be  sad.gif

Seriously, I am going to Vegas solo from Charlotte. I did this last tour too and never hooked up with the great TRF people. That was my only regret. Not this time. We will all definitely set up something. Hell, maybe a few of us should get tickets together so we can rock out at the show???? Thoughts?

Oh, and in case you are wondering no, I am not an ax murderer or some wierdo...just some 47 year old Rush freak that is going to make the Vegas show his 37th Rush show. First saw them on the 2112 tour.  old.gif

I'm actually pretty mellow. I've decided to make a whole vacation out of it. Want to see the Hoover dam and play some golf. Might play a little blackjack or slots but not much of a gambler. Might even try to catch (and I'm afraid to admit I lover her  wub.gif   blush4.gif  ) a Celine Dion show. Then I just want to have a few drinks before the big show and enjoy my favorite band in a magical place...hopefully with some new friends.   trink39.gif

Edit: And by the way, why are so many people from last time not going this time? I'm going again so I can hook up with the people that I missed last time. And now a lot of you aren't coming!  fists crying.gif  Come on! Change your minds!

Hey weatherman2112
I love veteran rush fans.  

In fact in 2004 I met  a lot of them. Perhaps my feelings are a melancoly.
I know a few other people going not TRF but on FB.    Anyhoot, I had a dream last night that I went alone and in the pit again and Alex was showing off so it is a good sign.  I have gone too many shows alone in fact it is what I do but will miss some pals from last time.  Traveling alone has some challenges, however, I get first rows a lot of times on my own.  I have no trouble meeting people etc meeting fans.  Have had some trouble with TRF not fitting in at times.  We will definitely meet up and I have a friend in Vegas and will ask her if she can score us some good tix.  I met her in Toronto at the Rush show in 2007 and she put me in the 6th row.  
will be my 29th show  2.gif
After my dream with the band happy I am happy   smile.gif  I LOVE  wub.gif  heart.gif my  2.gif
You have a good heart trink39.gif  goodpost.gif

I just talked an old high school buddy of mine in to joining me. He'll be flying in from Minnesota. It will be his 1st ever Rush concert! He's been a fan forever but never had a chance to see them. Should be a hoot!

Wow, 6th row would be sweet!!!!  !!!!!!

Any word on when these tickets will actually go on sale?

I'm guessing the first or second week in May.  That's when SLC is going on sale, and those two spots usually go on sale around the same time.  Looks like I'll be coughing up a lot of cash at once  ohmy.gif  because I am  going to both of these shows.  Just me for Vegas, but my hubby and 10 year old son are going with me to SLC.

Also, I'm planning on spending the day Saturday at the mini RushCon.  Those tickets go on sale next week...27th, I believe.  It would be nice to hang out with some TRF members before the show...have a couple of cocktails, you know the drill!   trink39.gif

Hey you
I just talked my neighborhood friend to come to and we shall see if it happens.  WOuld love to get sixth row and waiting to see if Caroline calls me.  I still don't know much about the mini Rushcon....is it the first ever? That's sounds cool.  I  NEVER miss RUsh in Vegas NEVER...MGM is classy and cool and I met Pat McLaughlin there too.  Also the indoor show is awesome just really cool and your friend will love it no doubt.  I went to Moving Pictures in Oakland when I was sixteen and hope the feeling is just the same.  An absolute dream come true for me.  BTW seen them almost 30 times and never enough times for me tongue.gif

Has anyone seen any more ticket info on the Vegas show?  LiveNation still says pre-sale is tomorrow but neither Ticketmaster nor Musictoday have it listed.  I am also getting tickets for the DC show tomorrow and TM has the show listed with ticket prices.  

Another question about the MGM.  My brother saw the Eagles there this weekend and said the venue was horrible unless you get floor seats.  One door in/out and the bowl seat all face the center.  Have others seen a show here?  Is it a must to get floor seats?

Thanks.

Thanks.

I purchase my tickets at the show.  I do know the locals purchase them via the MGM Venue to get close and personal.  The MGM sell the tickets too. Broker prices are in the thousands. It is a tricky deal so I buy from MGM day of which is a gamble but got second row so?  I am not sure what he means by horrible but I have always enjoy it on the floor.  I prefer more than Mandalay.  Again, just personal opinion for sound and venue.  Friends make it worth the trip  smile.gif
