Posted 18 June 2012 - 11:56 AM
Went to back to back nights in Hollywood Florida for the Signals tour. I was 13 and just in awe of it all. I had the crappiest seats all the way in the rear of the arena....but it did not matter. This was my first rock concerts ever to boot. I will never forget it. I don't remember some of it....but I do remember certain things. Like the ho hum crowd reaction to all the stuff off Signals and anytime Geddy would say here is a new one off Signals and the groaning from some people around me...I was like WTF are you crazy??? This is amazing stuff!!!
And TCE being played at an insane pace....like they were on cocaine!
Anyway great times.

My dad saw this concert (because of Kiss, not Rush ):
May 6, 1975 Riverside Theater. Milwaukee, Wisconsin (KISS)
My dad's father was good friends with Ralph Capone, older brother of Al. My dad even called him "Uncle Ralph"

|Just wondering when everyone saw Rush for the first time? Really curious if anyone here saw them with the late, great John Rutsey or on Neil's first tour with the band.|
I personally didn't but my girlfriends grandfather, just happened to see them at a park in Ohio, right after the first album he said they opened for someone I suggested Uriah Heep? He said yeah I think it would have to be them.
I said, I'm going to see Rush this fall
He was taken back a bit surprised they were still around, I said one of the biggest bands in the world now.

Fastway opened. My floor tickets (~15th row) were $13.50.
(I paid more in ticketmaster service charges for the new tour.)
