This is hilarious. I was bummed about not being able to see Rush in Bridgeport seeing as I moved from there last year. My company is having a shutdown the week of Oct 8 and I decided I'm driving to Connecticut to see my friends and family. Then I remembered this show! I'm going to be in CT during the rush concert that I wanted to go to, and now can't... Wtf laugh.gif

Hello all,
I am VERY new to this forum, the forum i belonged to a while ago is now defunct and i have not 'landed' anywhere...
I have been a RUSH fan for 30+ years and have waited many a year for them to play somewhere as close to where i live as Bridgeport...

I have lived in Fairfield County most of my life but don't know much about Brideport..
but i did find these they look promissing, but i have NO idea about any of them:
- Barnum Public House
- Brennan's Shebeen - the BRIDGEPORT location
- The Metric

Barnum Public House is about .5 miles from the arena.
The Shebeen is about 2.7 miles from the arena.
The Metric is about .7 miles from the arena

Given my affinity for GREAT Irish Pubs my guess is i will START at The Shebeen for a Guinness or two then make my way to the Public House, and walk from there to the show.

Show is at 7:30 doors are probably at 6:30, that would put me at the Public house between 430 and 6, and shebeen 3 to 430 or so.

ANYONE?!?!? comments, questions, sound good, better ideas?

look forward to seeing and meeing new RUSH people in my area.

Hey, stephen!  I remember you from "said forum".  It's actually back online but it's dead.

Not going to the CT show, just wanted to say "hey" and have a great time.  Lau (bostonrush) I know will be there with Tray and I'm sure they'll be tons of other people you'll know.  =]

Yeah, for me, had to cut it somewhere.  And, hate to sound like a guy who's past his prime (even though I am that guy), but my days of driving 3 plus hours each way for a midweek show are probably behind me.

If it was opening night, we'd probably go down and stay, but as it is we're headed up to TO next weekend, so I guess that's the line.

Ugh - don't you hate it when you realize you're what you used to call "too old"?

Honestly, we were only planning to go opening night.  Then a bunch of weird things happened within the last couple of weeks.

Now I'm going to Boston with my brother (long story), and we're going up to TO next weekend to see our friends play the RushCon gig.  We don't have tickets to the Sunday show yet, but I guess we'll just see what happens.  Who knows.

Is there a parking garage or a public parking lot around the venue that doesn't cost too much?

Hi,there are other garages and lots in the area you can park,but keep in mind,this arena isn't in the safest neighborhood if you have to walk back after the show..my advice would be to park in the garage attached to the arena,the few extra $ will be worth it for your safety...

Um, ok... looks like I lied...

Forgot it was my best friend's b-day yesterday.  He hasn't seen Rush in over 20 years... loves the new album...

So yeah - just picked up two tickets.  Guess I'll see you there, after all stephena!

I'll be second row all the way on Geddy's side.  Hopefully I can still see Alex from there!

If the Barnum House is the consensus, I hope to see you guys there.

Absolutely park in the designated lots surrounded by fans. Don't want to scare but want to make you aware. Bridgeport is a bit rough.

Quick question for anyone that has been to Webster Arena...is Row A on the floor the first row in a section?

I have seen some tickets state that AA is the first row.

I have yet to find a detailed seating chart and was curious.

Thanks...

It's double letters first in the loge but don't know about the floor.  I can tell you though, I have yet to see any floor tickets with double letters for resale.  That kinda leads me to believe it's single letters first.
