I understand Rush will play the entire Moving Pictures album on that date. Has anyone else heard about the boys doing the same in their city?  trink39.gif

Last time, Milwaukee show was different from the one in Chicago. That's why I asked.  bekloppt.gif

I'm trying to remeber what was different, because I went to both of them on the last tour.  If there was anything different, it was just one song perhaps.

I guess I'm picky.  laugh.gif  Anyway, it's a mute point since they're going to do the Moving Picture thing everywhere.   trink39.gif

Picked up some seats, pretty far in the back. It's a low-capacity venue so I'm perfectly fine with the seats we got. Just as long as I'm there smile.gif

I will most likely be attending this one.  Although, Columbus is another option.

I too would like to know what this venue is like, if anyone has ever been there.   smile.gif

Anyone up for a gathering somewhere for a bite to eat & a beer or whatever?

Any suggestions on where to meet as well?

Looks like 4th row at the pavillion for me. Has anyone seen a show at this venue? I'm in section 105... far left. I'm hoping that I have a good view of the full stage. Can anyone confirm this? I hear there isn't a bad seat at that venue.

Has there been any talk about meeting up somewhere prior to the show?  I got linked here and I wanted to see if anyone was doing such a thing.  Last tour, UC show...many gathered at a bar down the street, and we had a great time, though it was just "luck" that we ran across each other.  I am not familiar with the venue.  I know where to go, but not what would be a good place to meet.

There is not anywhere for a meetup prior to the show... This venue is located on what was previously Meigs Field which was a small aircraft airport on Northerly Island... It's a very nice nature park now with trails for cycling. The Adler Planetarium, Shedd Aquarium, and Field Museum campus are all right closeby. There are zero bars or anything remotely similar... Tailgating is also not allowed in the parking lots that are at the venue, but you may be able to have a couple in the Mcormick Place parking lots and take the shuttle over...

Honestly, there really are no places by the venue. Not one. Meeting up will be in the parking lot or inside or somewhere on Michigan Avenue a mile plus walk away....

Sorry to be a whore, but it is verdad.

I GUESS THE ONLY PLACE I CAN THINK OF IS THE BENNIGAN'S (if they're still there) ACROSS FROM THE ART INSTITUTE!

Other than that, I guess we'll have to Google, Yahoo or Bing.

I'll look into it.  A mile walk doesn't bother me though.  Just for the record.  I'll come back and post some ideas and see who salutes!

It's your typical out door music venue.  It's not bad when you are in the pavilion.

As for a place to meet up?  I think this place is still in the middle of corn fields.  The best thing to do is find a place to tailgate in the parking lot, or pick a place inside the venue.

I'm in section 101 and I've heard nothing but good about this place. Unfortunately, I myself have never attended a show there but some friends of mine have. The only thing I'm worried about is rain. The entire place is out in the open so if it starts raining, there is no escape. Give yourself plenty of time for parking too because it can be a hassle from what I've been told. If you want to park at the planetarium, (which is a lot closer) it's 30 bucks. Otherwise, we'll be parking at Soldier Field.
