Almost positive there will be a Buffalo show next year

I hope you're right on that. Do you have any sources to confirm that it will happen? I'm totally dumbfounded as to why they didn't have a show at Darien Lake this summer? Even 97 Rock had a petition on their web page to get them here. I was hoping something would be added at the end of the tour for here but no such luck angry.gif

I didn't mind it too much when they didn't play here on the second leg of S&A because they came here on the first one. But this time around I was very surprised. Especially with doing all of MP and Buffalo being one of the American cities that has supported them so well for so long. It just didn't make sense to me when there was no date for here announced.

Tom Petty sold out one show at Darien Lake this summer and then they added a second one. I know Buffalo's economy is in the crapper but people will still come out for the good shows. Especially for a good classic rock band like Rush.

I started a thread about a Buffalo show awhile back I know a few people who work at the DL Venue bottom line they blew it.This was the worse year for concerts at DL ie.attendance wise it was horrible.The booker for the shows and management over estimated the popularity of most of the concerts booked
Except for country which always is the money maker and the Uproar Festival which did great Tom Petty etc..They didn't book more  "older acts" which when I worked there always had a good crowd.With Rush I know they looked into adding them late with a date after Syracuse but it just didn't pan out.I usually talk to the DL people in the Spring and they give me heads up if they know what they have coming up for the Summer so I will keep yous informed if I hear anything in 2011

^^^^^^

Cool man, keep us posted on that. I did go to the Uproar festival at Darien Lake and it did draw a really big crowd. It's sad to hear that they screwed up on getting Rush here. The promoters at Darien Lake really need to be aware of who can draw around here and who can't.

My post from another thread:

This was my first show, and turned me into a far more intense fan. We were in the second to last row in Grandstand 3, but it was just so awesome I didn't even think about it. Having said that, next time I'm going to try for something closer. I hear the seating up front is for fan club members, but haven't seen any sign of how to join in poking around Rush websites. I signed up for the newsletter - are there details in there?

Our section was mellow too, but everyone took so many drugs before the show started that I doubt they even knew where they were, much less had the inclination to stand up/dance  We did have Vuvuzela Guy, who thankfully only used his instrument for applause, though it was unique and enthusiastic! All part of the fun - even took a pic of him. And how cool was it that the Fair fireworks were going off close to when Rush's were? One cool thing about the nosebleed seats - when they showed the big Ferris wheel onscreen during (was it) Presto, you could see the real one off to the left on the midway. Magical.

Oh, man, I wanna relive this show forever...hope my memories last a long time!

And just who am I, newbie that I am? My intro from Finding My Way:

Any Syracuse Rush folks ever meet up? Would love to get in on it!

Glad you enjoyed your first live  2.gif experience but really how could you not? biggrin.gif

As far as getting tickets close up yes, being a member of the fanclub does help that. Since you'll be able to get first dibs on tickets when the pre-sales for them start which is usually earlier in the week before they go on sale to the public.

If you're willing to spend a bit of extra cash you can also check StubHub for close seats. That's what I did to get front row for this show wacko.gif  But I must warn you that you maybe paying quite a bit more than what the ticket originally went for.
