Looking forward to the Toronto show, and hopefully RushCon will be based around this weekend!!

Probably the only show I'll make, unless I have some sort of windfall between now and opening night!

Definitely plan to be at this one.

Agreed...hopefully RushCon will be based around this weekend! I would love to come back and attempt to defend my 'Rush Jeopardy' title!  biggrin.gif

This will be a fun one never been the ACC. Is it nice? I should probably throw on some of my Maple Leaf swag for this show

I have a love/hate thing with the ACC.
Is it a nice venue?
Yes. The venue itself is fantastic.


I just dont love the location. You're downtown but you need to invest a lot of walking to get someplace cool. From the ACC box office you need to walk through the train station, up the stairs and out to Front Street before you can even decide which direction to look for a place to grab a bite or brew.


Yeah, it's somewhat petty... but I remember how great the old Gardens was for a show.  It was a 30 second walk to at dozen great pubs and restaurants.

Yep...agreed on all accounts.

The ACC is a nice place to go...I've been there many many times.

However, it is in a weird location. Great for access to the expressways to get out after the show and leave town.

But yeah, some of the best pubs and such, you are still quite a walk away...and being that it will be mid-October, it could start to be a bit chilly!

Still worth going to though!  trink39.gif

The acc is an awsome venue for Rush, i have seen them 2 times, and both concerts were freaking great, but please don't wear any Laff( i mean Leaf) stuff, I made that fatal mistake. I can still hear the heckling to this day      2.gif

After the show most people head to the orbit room but be prepared for a hefty cover and a long wait! I believe last show we just went to Fran's cause it's always open.

Why haven't we heard anything about sale dates yet? I've been checking TM and the ACC sites and neither even list Rush

I'm also debating whether to drive or take a train
