It looks like everybody going to the Chicago show is from Milwaukee.

That includes me.

This will be my second show and the last was also at the UC. Taking the Metra from Keno to Chicago.

Coming to the Chicago show after the Indy show.  Back home to Madison after that!  Can you have signs at the show?  Per the UC website, no signs are allowed, but I'm not sure if they mean for hockey/basketball games?    I want to make one if I'm not wasting my time.  At the moment, these are my first two shows...better late than never....

I will be headed there as well since Milwaukee doesnt get a dateon this leg. I am hoping for another Summerfest show next summer but will have to make the trek to Chicago with the wife and kids. Going to be expensive since the girls want to a day early and "shop". Anyone know of  Nice hotel very close to the venue?

We are staying at a Marriott that is 1 mile from the venue - Marriott at Medical District/UIC.  Looks decent.  Important thing for us was that it was close to the United Center.

Here is a link;

Wow, already booked.

I've invited the 3 guys that I sat 16th row center with at the L.A. Forum for the G/P Tour.  It was my 16th B-day.

Dude # 1 (bassist, singer) has RSVP'd for sure.

Dude # 2 (guitar) does't talk to these days for reasons unknown.  But he talks to #1, so... who knows.

Dude # 3 (guitar) (my best man and oldest friend) he's not sure because his sister is due to have a baby in Sept.  He's coming to Chicago next month to see the Scorpions and I have high hopes he'll make RUSH.  He and I first saw RUSH at the L.A. Forum, Signals Tour.

Can you guess what instrument I play.  ('play at' is more like it)

Yeah, I'm booked in there as well.  Not sure though if it's real safe to walk from hotel to the United Center and back so I bought a VIP parking tix for $35.00 just in case.  

Maybe Snaked can tell me why he hates the UC as I never been there before?

I've already booked the hotel in Indy as well!  My plans are set in stone at this point.

Turns out my dad and I aren't going to the Detroit show (even though, we're from Grand Rapids!!). Looks like we're getting Section 208, row 3, seats 5-6 for CHICAGOO. Only reason being is that it's on a weekend...This will be my first Rush concert! Super excited!

My best friend and me are coming in from Virginia.

We hit a bunch of shows in the 80s when we were in high school.

Needless to say, we both really dig Rush.  We also dig deep dish pizza thus the trip. trink39.gif

I can't wait now! I just saw Time Machine DVD in HD and 5.1 surround sound. This is going to be quite the epic first Rush concert for me!

Who else is going out and getting a Chicago pizza after the show?
