I'll be there with my teenaged kids, who are big Rush fans by the way. I got tix in sect. 403. I went for the cheapest seats I could find that weren't on the lawn. Not that there is anything wrong with the lawn. I just prefer a seat.

Just so you guys know, last year, PNC put a big damper on tailgating plans. They turned away cars at the entrance if they showed up too early. They're discouraging tailgating because of a number of incidents over the past few years at other shows. Rush shows shouldn't be a problem for them, but they applied the policy to all shows, so as to be fair I guess.

Last year, we arranged to meet at TGI Friday's on Route 35 in Hazlet before the show. It wasn't crowded at all, and was perfect for a meetup. A few of us met up there (Pass The Ammunition, Hatchet Axe & Saw, Metaldad, eguy...to name a few), until we got the call that Pags' vehicle broke down and a whole crew of people that were coming down from Pagscon were huddled at an Exxon station trying to figure out how to solve Pags' dilemma.

I'm not sure if the Exxon will welcome us back, but it might also be an option. I thought we were pretty well behaved on that Exxon lawn last year  laugh.gif

Great memories...

The Exxon is a memory that will never fade.  I've never felt so uplifted from so many people.  You are all awesome.

And I don't think the Exxon ever rocked as hard as it did that day.  laugh.gif

It was an amazing day! Those beers in TGIs? Instant jet-lag cure.

Looking forward to meeting as many of you as is possible this September.
Seriously thinking of getting a Premium ticket, but if any TRFers are gonna be on the lawn, then the lawn it is! I had great tickets in 08, but the second half on the lawn was better, WAY BETTER!

have they posted the price of lawn tix yet?

I'm about a half hour away to the southwest.

Here's a tip for you folks that will be coming down from North Jersey and NY. Leave early. The traffic will likely be horrendous due to people heading to the Jersey Shore for the Labor Day weekend.

Also, for any of the shows this summer at PNC, the traffic heading into PNC tends to be much less if you're coming from the south. If you're coming from the north, and you're stuck in major traffic heading into the venue, head past the PNC exit to exit 109 or 105, turn around and come back up to PNC from the south. You'll be glad you did.  wink.gif

There is a picnic area before you actually get to the gates that a lot of people used to start tailgating.  It was pretty ridiculous if you ask me.  We all drank and what not (nothing crazy, but still...) then got into our cars and drove to the gate to park and pick up where we left off!

I think it was $37ish for the lawn, when  I loked the other day. By the time taxes and fee are added it should be around the $50 mark.

I got Row V but I figured I should consider myself lucky to get that close so I took it scared.gif

also it was better than what I was pulling up during the pre-sale. I was getting Rows X, Y, and Z mostly, all seats wayyyy over to the side. I still have a seat wayyy over to the side but a couple rows further up.

Ach, it's not looking good for me, over here...

My sister's old man is officically an asshole. He wouldn't let her buy me a ticket cos I wouldn't be able to pay it back all at once, and here I thought that it was gonna be a birthday gift! yeah, right, my ass it is...

And, winning tix off the radio is a futile effort, too...all I keep getting is a f*cking busy signal, even before the queue to call is played! I swear, someone up there hates my guts!

Yeah that's why I'm going real early that day. I have to travel THROUGH the city from Connecticut. Not fun during Rush hours.

I dunno I think I'll take an auxillary highway around New York...eh..got months to figure the best way smile.gif

Yeah, like perhaps leave for PNC on Thursday.  laugh.gif

The Garden State Parkway is a nightmare on 'any' Friday afternoon during the Summer months with everyone trying to get to the Jersey Shore for the weeknend.  You can't begin to imagine how bad it will be on the Friday of Labor Day Weekend.  Whomever in the Rush camp decided to grab the Sept. 3rd date should be shot.
