Looks like the show has sold fairly well.  I just plugged in a single seat best available and it returned section 304 12 rows up!

Anyone get their VIP emails yet?  VIP SWAG?

this will be show #44 for me, but almost didnt happen...

I am tight on money recently, and my girlfriend Keri surprised me with tix (113, row 14).

I have not missed a single show since Power Windows, and was sure that I would miss Saturday.

I have seen them all over the USA during the "good times"and in first few rows  each time on the last 4 or five tours, but now I'm just grateful to be GOING!

anyone gonna be in that area?
peace

was an awesome show.  I thought Geddy sounded better than he did last time in Chicago.  

Anyone else chuckle when Neil missed catching his drumstick and Alex picked it up and started playing guitar with it? LOL

Just an incredible show.  Absolutely spot on all night.  Alex was about 8 feet in front of me (had second row) for nearly every solo.  Just gr eat watching him that close up.

On the walk back to the hotel I talked with a young gal who went to the show by herself.  Japanese gal that came all the way from Japan just to see Rush!  By herself!  Also met a couple from Chile who came to Chicago just for the show.  I thought I was a fan coming from Cleveland!

Can't wait for Toronto now!

Another truly awesome show!   applaudit.gif  new_thumbsupsmileyanim.gif  new_thumbsupsmileyanim.gif

A solo female fan from Japan and Chile fans!  Wow, that's really incredible!  Geez, I wonder how much they paid in airfare alone without the hotel and tix cost to see  2.gif ?   Just shows that  2.gif fans spare no expense to see the best band on the planet!

Have fun in Toronto!!  I would add more shows, but my wallet is doing  fists crying.gif  fists crying.gif

Section 113, row 14 Alex's side (rare for me to be that side of stage).
GREAT SOUND imo, especially Geddy vocally... didnt sound like he was straining.
My gf, who is a country girl, actually said she'd go again!
I enjoyed the heck out of it, more than second leg of time machine... maybe it was the new song selections??
anyways show #44 in the books, and it was an incredible night for me.
