Hello,

In case anyone is interested and is making the trip to the Cleveland, OH show at Quicken Loans Arena for the Sunday Oct 28th show.......

My Rush Tribute band (Distant Signals) will be performing on Saturday Oct 27th at Wilbert's downtown Cleveland, just a few blocks from the Q.

Hope we can get some Ohio Rush fans out to our show.  We'll be playing a ton of rare songs you would NEVER expect to hear, plus a few from Clockwork Angels.  

Spread the word please and Rush On     1022.gif

Hi all,
I'm from Detroit, but I'm thinking of going to see Rush in Columbus. What's the venue like, and approximately how long of a trip is it? Also, is Columbus a pretty good audience for Rush? Can anyone compare to Detroit? Thanks!

CBus is about 3.5 hours from Detroit depending on where you are starting from.

Nationwide Arena is a great venue in a nicer part of town.
Parking is easy although you should get there early because the streets get backed up pretty bad around the arena as showtime approaches.

CBus crowds are typically pretty good.
I've seen RUSH there several times at the old Polaris Amphitheater as well as the baseball stadium they have down there (on the Presto tour).


It's a fairly easy drive.. but since it's 2 nights after the Detroit show I'll be skipping it this time around unless something changes as the tour gets closer.

As we are rapidly approaching August it means less than 2 months for the show.  With my office downtown being within 3-4 blocks of the Arena District, do folks want me to start looking for particulars with regards to a venue (food type, beer selections, space, other activities, etc...)?

wouldn't the logical spot be that courtyard right behind the arena with all those little restaurants/bars and outdoor seating?


no idea what that area is called but it's literally right at the back door of the arena.

Yes you are absolutely right Snaked and that extends from right there at the main entrance plaza with 343 Front St. Tavern/Buca di Beppo down below going north to a pub (forget the name), Gordon Biersch, R Bar, Brothers, BBR, Garage Bar, Park Street Cantina, Bar Louie, Callahans Pub and lots of others.  It's all within a 5 minute walk which is why I asked about folks preferences.  There's also a Chipotle and a W.G. Grinders for people that want a quick bite before drinking.

That would be great, I plan on having a few drinks and socializing a little before the show but of course I wouldn't want to have to drive anywhere. Looking forward to meeting some fans  trink39.gif

Any type of place in particular for you SchemingDemon??  At Bar 343 right in front of the entrance to Nationwide there is a patio that is right on the plaza there and that is where the radio stations set up before every concert (according to music type).

Anywhere is fine by me, I'm not picky  smile.gif

I'm also just not very familiar with the area at all. But the closer to the venue, the better

I will be heading to BBR around 5:30 with my buds that are going with.  It's right behind Brother's off of Vine.

I have chosen my black 1994 Counterparts tour shirt to wear tonight if you need a reference point for the old Translyvania Twist... trink38.gif

Is this fairly close to the venue? If so, I may stop in since I'm going solo. I don't wanna pay $8.50 for a 24 oz beer again like I did at the Palace  laugh.gif

T-minus 11 hours and 37 minutes!!

BBR I would guesstimate about a 3 minute walk from Nationwide.  It is due North 1/2 block west of the corner of Front/Park (street changes names) and Vine St.  The entire Arena District is very cool with lots of options pre and post-show.

Fantastic Snaked.  Safe travels down our way.  What area are you staying at because there is construction on 71 in the downtown.
