I amlooking for a single seat for this show.

Meet-ups have been at Dave and Busters with members over at RushTour Forum.  It is withion a few blocks, maybe 1/4 mile even.  It is large enough for a good size group to pretty much "blend in".

Anyone going to this show?  I think my wife and I might drive down from Michigan to see this show.  What's the venue like?  Any meetups prior to the show???

I  would appreciate info from locals on the venue and places to stay nearby. I will be coming in with a few friends from Denver.
Is anybody interested in a meet-up before the show? If so where?

You picked a great venue, not a bad seat in the place. Its a pretty simple set up inside. Parking isn't too awful, I recommend parking near the exits to the main roads and walk a bit further, it will save you time at the end of the night.

I like the venue. I saw the Dead there back in 2004 and I remember it being simple and open, and you could hear the music just fine from the concession area. We're driving up from Memphis, but I'm not sure what time. We may not have any time for a meet-up, but I'll know better as time gets closer.

Wish the show was tonight, the waiting is the hardest part!!

I'll be there, got a ticket at the first presale - Row D  1022.gif  1022.gif

There are lots of places to stay in Earth city and St. charles,  for those in from out of town.  Several hotels are located on Riverport Blvd on the way to the venue (some even offer shuttle service to and from the show).

Dave and Busters is always a great place to hang out, but be forwarned, it will be packed!!  We met up with several members there last time and it was kind of a pain because it's hard to get a table for more than 4, the wait was long and it was just so busy.  

You might consider meeting at Sammy Hagars bar and grill located over at the casino around the corner from the venue.  It's a super cool place with great food and may be able to make a reservation - Im not sure.  

Just a thought.

Hope the show goes well tonight!!

The wife and I will be there. Hoping for no downpours this time! Unlike S&A, we have actual seats, but, like S&A, they ain't covered. Rhetorical question: why have a roof over every seat except 2 or 3 rows??  confused13.gif

Mystic, do you have the names of some of those hotels, particularly ones that might have shuttle service?  My hubby and I are going to be coming up from Memphis and it'd be cool to not have to drive to the show.  

Dave and Brusters was loud and crowded the last time but the atmosphere was fun. Too bad we can't get reservations there!

Looking forward to the show.  Don't have tickets yet, am going to try my luck with waiting till just before the show.  If all else fails there's always the lawn.  Last tour I was back in row GG and it sounded great.

My wife and I will be staying at the Wyngate on Riverport Dr.  I think they offer shuttle service.  If not, it's only about half a mile to the venue.

UPDATE: Wyngate also shuttles straight to Dave & Buster's, where the pre-show meet-up ought to be!  1022.gif

Thanks...good info there. I haven't set up our reservations yet, but I'll take all that into consideration.

And welcome to TRF, by the way.

Anyone know how this show is selling?  I'm thinking about just getting tickets when I get there.  Kinda scared of that if the boys traditionally sell out there.  It's a month out now and I do think that we're going to come down.

Check out the interactive site on TM. It will show you how many seats are left and where they are.

Great venue we do the lawn...... meet up at Dave n Busters was crowded so Casino might be a good idea. We went to Steak n Shake after for food and the cashier was saying how they just had a to go order for the road crew, 30 meals, seeing that we were from the show as were most of the people in there.

So that was cool. 1022.gif

I have stayed at the Wingate 4 times to see Rush and it was always been good.  There will be 8 of us next weekend staying at the Holiday Inn Express next to Dave & Busters this time.  Wingate has an indoor pool & Holiday has an outdoor pool.  We took the shuttle to the concert every time & walked back afterwards because the shuttle would get caught in traffic.  It is about a 15 minute walk, not bad at all.  There is also a Homewood Suites next to the Wingate and Harra's Casino has rooms & is only a few miles away.  Call now, the Wingate always fills up.  Search riverport motels marland heights, mo on google. trink39.gif
