Sorry for the lateness in responding - yes. These are the first set of tix I bought. I've since upgraded and now have no home for these.

Awesome.  Stop by the Distant Signals VIP tailgate before the show and have a beer and say hello.  Look for the Distant Signals banner and hopefully will be directly across the street from Consol Energy in the parking lot.   653.gif

1 of the 7 and I will be old friends by the time she gets to Pittsburgh!  (ha ha)  I'm going to offer her a tour of the city which I hope will include a tailgate before the show.. will you be in the Melody Tent lot?

Will do! I think you know me from the Facebook groups - I'm Carrie Ellen W. bekloppt.gif And just now, I found out I may have a potential buyer for my tix! Woohoo!

Hey folks, can anyone help a fellow Pittsburgher out? I have 4 first-row non-floor seats I'd like to trade for 2 floor seats. I purposely didn't buy floor seats so that my friends could afford the show, but they all backed out and now I'm out of arms reach of Geddy, Alex, and Neil sad.gif

The seats are Section 104, Row A, seats 15-18. Please PM me or e-mail me at chris@chrisarmstrong.me if you're at all interested - we only have a few days left. Thanks so much!

I know, that will mean I get the same show I saw in Manchester.  No complaint, but I'd like to see some of the alternate songs.. hopefully one of my other shows will be the second setlist.  


ONE MORE DAY!!! It's Rushmass Eve today in Pittsburgh!!!

Last night was my first Rush show--and even though I'm seeing the Who in November, I don't know how that, or any other concert for that matter, will measure up to what I experienced. Thank you, guys, for such an amazing show!

  By "very controlled" do you mean subdued or less then enthusiastic? sad.gif
I have read complaints about the sound mix on other message boards besides TRF. Hope they get that ironed out by the time they get to Cleveland.

It did seem a bit muddy compared to the last few times they have been through.

Well, I had musician's earplugs, so all of the super high frequencies were removed...it sounded good to me.  I did take them out a few times, just to hear the difference and there's no way I could have listened without them...it was just a cacophony of frequencies.

After replaying the evening in my head today, sure, there could have been a wide variety of "disappointment" out in the crowd.

For me, it's RUSH.  We shared the same space on the planet for the better part of three hours and they were playing for me.  What's not to love and appreciate?  smile.gif
