The Garden Grady at MSG in '07 lead to the Granite Grady in Manchester, NH in '08 which lead to the Gahden Grady at the Boston Garden in '10...

Now it's Garden Grady - redux.

I got section 34 row c from Music today.  All I was interested in was tickets that got us in the door.  I wasn't trying to get up close or anything.  This is perfect.

Now if I can just find where I wrote down Stout's address.

I was tempted to go for tickets thru the presale, but my budget for tickets is practically nil. So, I'll wait for the public onsale date and get nosebleeds.

I've been to Stout once... at the original Garden Grady.  I'm looking forward to going back again.  Just so long as we get another huge group picture out in front of the arena.

Definitely dude. I did third row at PNC and fifth row in Philly on the S&A tour. I'd love to be up there again, but not at the prices I'm seeing these days.

I'll be content to just be at the show.

Yep...I remember meeting you. That's you on the far left side of the pic.

I don't remember how I missed out on that pic. I must not have been too willing to part with my half empty beer  laugh.gif

Greetings on this pre-sale Monday!!!

There's something about seeing a show at The Garden.

I'm pretty spoiled living less than 20 miles away from NYC.

I've seen so many shows there over the years and as someone said here, it is electric and the band(s) always feed off of the crowd.

I am so looking forward to meeting up with you all at Stout.

It is so great to see so many TRF folks coming into to town for the big rock show.

Don't hesitate to let me know if you have any questions about NYC, I'll do my best to offer good advice.

As far as sound is concerned, of course Radio City has better sound, but if you can manage to be in the 200s or lower (the lower the better...Loge is best) you'll be pleased with the sound this arena offers.

Four months to go Net Boys and Net Girls!!!

~Cheers, RGLT

So, you're saying that my second row, Geddy's side seat should have good sound?  tongue.gif

I am SO FREAKING STOKED!!

Rushchick10,

The first few rows can be a bit sketchy soundwise, as the speakers are sometimes elevated just behind you.

But I do know from your posts that you'll be quite content with the view! smile.gif

Congrats on your great seats and looking forward to meeting you and the rest of our Rush brothers and sisters at Stout.

~Cheers, RGLT

Yeah, when you get that close at just about any venue the sound has the potential to be bad, or at least not as good as the rest of the venue.  But, getting seats like that, it's all about the whole experience.  I have seen Rush plenty of times and have had them sound amazing.  But, for this small town girl from Idaho, getting second row tickets at Madison Square Garden is like having a dream I never knew I had come true!  Even better that it is a Rush show!  1022.gif  1022.gif
