Was considering this myself.....this might be a stupid question but I honestly don't know....how do you go about providing return postage/packaging for say a CD?  Any help greatly appreciated, thanks!

Prepare your padded envelope or whatever you are going to have it mailed in.  Address it and get it completely ready to go except for that last closure that will seal it up.  Take it to the post office and have them weigh it and put the postage on it.

That's what I did in 2010 and I got it a couple of days after the show.  I sent it to the shed in Tampa (I know it was in Florida) I believe.

I've got a ways out til my show - but does anyone know if the Charlotte arena does this?  

Hope so - great idea about going out to record store and getting some LP's. Don't even care which ones - lol.  

That would go GREAT on the wall in my Man Room!

I didn't know one could do this. I am going to the Boston show in October. I'll give it a go unless anyone knows they don't do it. I don't have any photos, etc. Maybe I'll send in the CA hardcover package or that huge CA double side poster or something.

I must be kind of weird because autographs don't do anything for me.  A friend of mine (who isn't really a Rush) fan sat beside Geddy on a domestic flight in Canada and he got his autograph for me (thinking I'd go nuts over it) on an Air Canada napkin.  But, I don't even know where it is now...

Strangely, Rush is my favourite band.  If I ever met one of the guys somewhere I wouldn't ask for an autograph or even a picture.  I'd just say "thanks for the great music."

But, most people must think I'm nuts...

If Neil is addressed to sign it, expect it to be addressed to YOU, i.e. "To Joe Shmoe", all so it will diminish its value/resellability.  Such a ridiculously petty mindset of someone revered as being a "great", intelligent and successful- but really is someone tremendously cynical and insecure.

Call the venue! That's what did. They said they would give it to them, but no guarantees!

I specifically asked for my cover to be personalized for us.  It doesn't have to have any monetary value...just sentimental.  I've acquired very few autographs in my lifetime, and none of them had any staying power in my heart...this baby is going in a frame to be displayed in my home!

It's our last name... To the Misners.  smile.gif I'm willing to bet Geddy wrote that...he seems to have the heaviest hand out of all the signatures.

Just got my signed copy of Signals in the mail today from the Pittsburgh Show.

Awesome !

In these days when bands have little control over ticket prices and what venues they will play, the fact that something like this is totally in their hands and they take the time to do it at every show, well, it's pretty cool.

Thanks guys (and Liam) !!

Wondering if the postman will bring my Time Machine trade advertisement back autographed today.  Fingers crossed. It's going up in my office matted/framed next to my pic with Ged and Alex from the 4/15/11 Cleveland show.

I'm doing five shows on this leg, but only one (Pittsburgh) got the RF seal of approval for where to send a package to. Thanks for the heads-up Amy... I hope they don't hold it against me that I sent it from Ohio. smile.gif

Nice pic. Very cool.

Personalized and all, my autographs arrived this afternoon. One of the most Rushtastic days I've had!
