Regarding pricing...

For what it's worth, this year I paid $134 for row 12 at White River (Music Today) and $300 for row 8 in Las Vegas (Live Nation). 

Two years ago, I paid $100 for row 16 in Phoenix (Music Today).

IMO, these 2010 prices aren't unreasonable compared to other recent shows I've priced (Eagles, Roger Waters).

Yes, the StubHub prices suck, but those are broker and scalper prices, not the venues.

But if you want to be in the first few rows these days, then you're going to pay more.  It has never been easy to get the great seats, even before the rise of brokers and scalpers.  Twenty years ago, you could camp out at the box office and sometimes get lucky, but often you still wound up with mediocre seats.  And then they started passing out "lottery numbers" to people in line, making camping out a moot point. sad.gif 

I does seem like ticket buying is always rigged against the fans, and in favor of the scalpers and brokers. angry.gif  But even though the current system is still frustrating, I have gotten consistently better Rush seats (admittedly more $) through online pre-sales than through the old days of camping out at the box office.

I agree.
I remember going to the T4E tour.  We were second in line and ended up with row 33 at The Gorge.  Are you kidding me???  We were expecting row 10 or so being second in line.  
For the 2nd leg of S&A at the Gorge, I was able to get row 16 online and I got row 10 this time, also online.  My tickets were $130 each this time around, after fees.  I don't think that is too bad at all.  And when you compare it to the inflation on other items like gas and groceries, it is probably behind the curve.

The husband and I are bringing the daughter this year to see Rush! Her second concert, well 4th or 5th if you count her Daddy's shows, her first being ZZ Top. There are people travelling with in my truck and like 5 or 6 other friends who are going to meet up with us there! Going to be a great time! 1022.gif

I am hoping to make this gig but the past few months have thrown my life off course with family health issues. I really want to be there and want to meet up with others before the concert. Just have to see how things go.

Hello my fellow runner! biggrin.gif

All is well now, I had to help out my mother for a few months. I really want to make the show but the new job I have is leaning towards no, but we will see. If I can make it, we can hook up before the show ok!! I hope all is well with you and your family.

Does anyone know anything about the seating here?  I went for the first leg of S&A and sat quite a way back, so I didn't pay any attention to the closer seating .  This time I got section 5, row 10 which is the second row in the section, About 9 rows from the stage.  
My question is, does anyone know if the seats in that area are raised above the seats in front of them?  Or is it flat seating until farther back?

If I remember correctly, floor seating is very slightly raised from back to front.

Didn't think I was gonna be able to make it due to money issues, so i was pretty bummed. Buddy calls me up and says if i can pay for 1 ticket his dad will cover gas/food/lodging as his graduation present. So i shelled out the 80 bucks for section 203, row 28, seat 7, and my buddy has seat 8. not anything close at all, but i'm just stoked that i'll be there for this awesome tour

I'm also in the 200 section.  It's pretty OK.  That's where I was for Ozzy in '07.

I can't stand the thought of not going. I thought I could accept it but I don't think I can! I sent an email to a friend I haven't seen for a while asking if he would be interested in going to the show with me. I know he's a Rush fan. So, we'll see.
