Yum Center is a stone's throw from me so I'll be at the show. The BBC brewery would be a good place for a pre-show meet if y'all want.

BBC was one of my first thoughts but it is actully about 6 blocks away on east Main.  Fourth St. Live is closer and there are a couple nice places there.

We have a few months to come to a consensus so lets leave it open for now.

It is always nice to see a HOMETOWN show instead of driving to St. Louis or Columbus, OH like I did this last summer.  I live in Clarksville and work near the river in Jeffersonville.

I am usually posting over at RushTour Forum but it is nice to know there are some other Louisville fans here.

I hope to get to meet each of you in April.

Presale packages today are $297 per seat BEFORE Ticketbastard charges!

WTF?

Not paying that much unless FRONT row is available.

Gonna wait for the regular sale and take my chances.

Uh...holy crap! I just checked Ticketfucker and that is crazy. No way I'll pay that for any show anywhere by anybody.

On a side note, 4th Street Live would make sense for a meetup.

Yes! Floor tickets! My closest ever for any concert. So I officially got my ticket on this morning and I'll be going.

edit to add: $117 for floor...now that's a price I'm willing to pay.

Meet up place.

It seems I was wrong.  There is a Bluegrass Brewing Company diagnally across from the YUM center at 3rd and Main.

I would suggest that this would be a great place to meet up and introduce our out of town friends to some Louisville brews.

SEATING LOCATIONS.

Found a seat in Row P on the regular sale this morning!

eBay has a 2nd row ticket for $500 right now.

I would pay that if I had that kind of money to spend right now and was willing to go without electricity, gas, food, etc.

Paid $112 for my Row T and am happy.

SOme observations on the YUM!

Went to the YUM! for the first time last evening for my daughter's graduation ceremony.  University of Louisville had commencement for 700 last evening.  She got Bachelor's in Biology.

The YUM! has some stupid access to the seats. If you are going, the aisle/walkway at the top of the first teir of the "bowl" has very limited access. There are only a few narrow tunnels leading to this walkway and the walkway itself is very narrow.

The upper bowl seats are scary as the access aisles seem to be nearly vertical. I am certain that a couple drinks will make them dangerous. They are NOT a good choice for a concert.

I saw the video screens scattered throughout the concourse flash the RUSH/TIME MACHINE ad numerous times!

Hope you are all thawing out and have a great holiday

The BBC at that location does not serve food, just drinks.

May need another spot.

Maybe back at 4th Street Live.  There is a Hard Rock and other nice places we can consider.

Looks like someplace at 4th Street Live would be easiest and a decent walk to the YUM.

4th street bars/restaurants.

Is the RED STAR the most obvious link to the band?  Something every RUSH fan can remember easily.

Need to sell one ticket.

Row T, FLoor, Geddy side.

Looking for a good Rush fan wanting a decent seat.

$130

All I really want is my money back, I have a better seat and don't need this one.

I think the original thought about meeting at BBC is best.  It is close to the venue.

I will likely be there around 3-4.

Bluegrass Brewing Company is nice and has our local brews.
It is diagnonally across the intersection from the YUM center in a southwest direction.

Let's just say that is out official spot for now.

Since the show was yesterday, this is pretty irrelevant, but the Bluegrass Brewing Co. right across from the Yum! Center does serve food, too.  I had my first bison burger there last night before the show....
