You know, I know many people love Rush----few do as much as I do----but what I do not understand is the unmitigated rudeness of those that feel that they can just wander up into the front rows at some point during the show and sqqqquuuuueeeeezzzzzeeeeee their way into the rows and crowd those that either were blessed enough to get incredible seats, or those that paid LOTS of money to get the seats.  Its one thing if you want to change seats with someone for a while.  That is no problem.  What I have a big problem with is just wandering up into the rows and crowding those that are peacefully enjoying the show.

It makes my blood boil.  All of a sudden you are holding on to your space and getting squeezed and pushed out of your "seat area" and it just sucks.

There are people on this board that do this.  I have seen it repeatedly with my own eyes.  You all know who you are and it is a shitty thing to do.

Stop it.

Have respect for those that are around you.  There is no excuse for it, and you are being a gigantic butthole when you do it.  If you want to switch seats with those you know in the front row for a while do it, but stop getting into the space of others, which leads to security coming up to you during the show, and disrupting everyone around you.  It is rude, unthoughtful, and disrespectful.

Stop it.

Diddums! Poor baby. Mummy provide you with your own bubble next time.

Ah bless!!

I will chime in here.

Yes, I did go to the front in Vegas for 10 minutes - knew a friend up there!
Yes I did go up in Columbus for the 2nd half (my friend let me stay)

No one else but YOU complains, if I was encroaching on someones space and they had an issue, of course I would leave.

Everyone around me was friendly and not pissed off.

I pay for my front row tickets 90% of the time, 2 times this tour I have not...........

Uhhh...

As it turned out, she was asked to leave BEFORE the start of the first set.  She begged and pleaded to be allowed to stay over and over and they asked her to leave.

Then she did it again before the second set.  

She stayed the whole second set.

The guy she does it to is a nice fellow, he said to me before the show to expect it to happen and to ask security to say something.  They caught her before I or anyone could, but the second set they gave up on her.

It is immature and rude.

And as for you Tony R you have been and always will be a horses rear end.

You ought to be ashamed of yourself.
You snuck up front row again in Columbus and you weaseled out another front row experience without paying the exorbitant money paid by another person.


I think you ought to be truly ashamed of yourself.  You did it in Vegas and you did it in Columbus.  I don't know why some people feel the need to be so immature.  Those around you just shake their heads in disbelief.  Rude, disrespectful and immature as holy hell.  Jesus.  I wonder how many other venues you did this at and how many other folks you took advantage of???????

Well come on, it's a concert for heaven's sake. Back in the good old days the first 30 rows all moved forward to the front and we had a great time. Sure we lost the odd one in the crush but that was all part of the concert experience and besides they tended to be the weaker whiny bastards like you.

Ok, enough name calling etc.  This thread doesn't need to be closed because we can't discuss this a grown-ups, does it?

People work their way to the front all the time, it happens at every show.

RUSHGIRL is a great girl, she is a very nice and considerate person. I am sure she didn't ruin anyone's experience, if she thought she was she wouldn't have tried to get up front and she would have gotten out of your way.  I have hung with her a few times and will again in the future...

Oh, gee...I always pay for my cart full of groceries but this time I'm only going to pay a smaller percentage of the actual price.

Let's have EVERYONE move to the front row if it's no big deal.

Here's the problem.

All tickets at these venues up front are held by folks that sell them off to the highest bidder.  It's just the way its done.  If I told you how much I paid for my seats you would think I was crazy.

So along comes this inconsiderate person in Vegas and all of a sudden my wife is grabbing for her space because now this person shows up and tries to work herself into the 2 square feet that each of us had to stand in.  Then you are enjoying the show and security comes in and there ensues a whole conversation with a grown 40 something person begging to be allowed to stay all while Alex is playing his ass off.  Kinda hard to enjoy the stage when someone is begging and pleading to please not be made to go to the seat that she paid FAR FAR FAR less for somewhere behind front row.

Then she does it again.

This time she is removed before the show starts

Then she rudely does it again.

As for you stating that it happens all the time, GROW THE HELL UP.

This wasn't a GENERAL ADMISSION open floor show.

As for her being a nice person, she may be the cat's pajamas outside the venue, but inside at a Rush concert, she abuses others space and takes advantage of people that spend THOUSANDS for tickets from front row scalpers.  I am a nice and considerate person too.  Some on this board know me personally and can vouch for that.  I am sure she and I would get along fine.  I just am pointing out how it does offend those around her who witness it.  There were a lot of folks talking about it at both the shows I went to.  

Now if you want to close the thread, go ahead...that's your prerogative.  But there is no way it is cool to come up and steal space in the front row from someone who paid LOTS OF MONEY for that ONE SEAT.

Seems to me that some people spend so much time worrying what everyone else is doing that they forget to chill and have a good time themselves. The OP had great seats and a great view pity he had to spoil it for himself by getting worked up about nothing. Seems to me that if he fell into a barrel of titties he'd fret about who had managed to fall into a bigger barrel of bigger titties.

STOP.

Stop posting this crap, okay?  You may not like the way we handle things here, but that's tough.

I've asked you twice to stop stirring things up.
