I'll just copy and paste here what I said in the other thread  smile.gif

I live in Birmingham so Atlanta has been my city of choice for Rush shows over the years, so it looks like I will be there again. On the Time Machine Tour my wife and I hit Atlanta and then Nashville, which was a first for me. I am hoping they hit Nashville on a 2nd leg next spring. But for now, she and I are Hotlanta bound!

I just cant believe they are doing an outside venue in November. There is a potential for colder weather. Just doesn't make sense to me. confused13.gif

My daughter and I will be there!! I like the idea of an outdoor show at the beginning of November. It won't be so stinkin' hot!

Should we meet up at Champps again?

Can somebody explain to me where to get tickets for the Atlanta show and how to do presale (if there is one)?

I HOPE that this will be my son Kerry's first-ever Rush show.  It's a school night (of COURSE it is) but we hope we can somehow make this work.

I'm guessing you will have to go through Ticket-Bastard...but there is no sale date there yet.  As for the Pre-Sale...I think that only goes through Live Nation, so there may not be one for Atlanta  confused13.gif

There is one on Mansell Rd. We met there for the TM tour. I am open to meeting up anywhere!

That Champp's meetup was the best thing ever.  TupeloBarchetta kind of masterminded it and took some great pics.

Hey guys! My first concert was on the Time Machine Tour and I got pretty decent seats, but I want to get some really good ones this year. Does anyone have an price ranges for the sections at Verizon? I was a few rows in from the lawn and paid about 70 something if I remember right. I'm not going for Front Row (I remember those being quite pricey...) but I'd like to try to get at least halfway to the stage.

Thanks!  2.gif

Hey, everyone! The mastermind of the 2010 Atlanta meet-up is back. (I appreciate your kind comments, Mara!) I've been away for some time dealing with a divorce and other life issues. I'm glad to be back in time to celebrate the release of new Rush music and the upcoming tour.

Now, for some good news/bad news/good news.

Good News: I'm stoked about meeting up with everyone again in Atlanta.

Bad News: I believe Champss is closed. I saw a note online that it was closed and the phone is disconnected.

Good News: I have a friend in the Atlanta area who's doing some groundwork in finding a new meet-up spot. He's also planning a tailgate party before the show.

I'll keep everyone updated on the latest developments.

A Rush concert on Nov. 1 - what a great way to celebrate my ex-wife's birthday!

wtf.gif Am I the only one confused about how we are going to get tickets for this show?  Ticketmaster and Live Nation don't even have the event listed, the Rush website says tickets will be available through "normal outlests"...WTF does that mean?  I thought Ticketmaster and LiveNation were "Normal outlets" wtf.gif
I went to the Encore Park website, and they do have the event listed...but still TBD on the ticket sale date...do we have to buy the tickets straight from the venue?

myturn -

Yea I have had the same thoughts as you about this, and it worries me -- to me, the usual outlets are Ticketmaster, etc. I just hope when they do announce the sale date they give us a little forwarning - I don't want to be caught off-guard, as I plan to be there buying them the minute they go on-sale!

I was driving through Atlanta late last night and 97.1 "The River" announced the same information.
