My apologies up front for this post.

I'm a big Rush fan living in Tampa that is currently unemployed.  If anyone has had someone do a good deed for them AND wants a way to pay it forward AND has an extra Rush ticket for the Tampa show AND would like to make a fellow Rush fan very happy, then please let me know.

I promise that when I get back on my feet I will pay this wonderful act forward to someone else in some way.  

I hate begging, and if this doesn't fit within the guidelines of the forum, then please delete the post.   Thanks.

This will be for my sons birthday (He turns 10 in March and has seen Rush 3 times already and met Geddy and Alex to boot). We will drive up Friday Morning, catch a Rays game vs the A's that night, go to another Ray's game Saturday afternoon and then the three of us will be at the show Sunday night.

Very pumped for this one (as well as Vegas)!

Cool that we're hitting the same two shows! I missed the boat on my usual Canadian dates because I'm in Europe that week.

T-MINUS TWENTY EIGHT DAYS!!! Starting to get excited!

Let's make sure we meet up in Vegas. Staying at the MGM....coming in Friday morning and leaving Monday morning. Tampa is the family show. We hitting a couple of Rays games (Friday and Saturday) then hitting the show Sunday night.

Can't wait!!!

Has a pre-show spot been decided on? There is Fergs and Hooters close to the venue. There is also Champions Sports Bar, which is quite nice, inside of the Marriott lobby area (across the street from the venue). Thoughts?

The best bet for a meet-up before the concert will be Ferg's. It is immediately across the street from Amelia arena. Has you typical bar food, alcohol, both indoor and outside seating as well as a live band from 4:00-7:30 (Scream Machine plays rock from 80s and 90s).

Both the indoor and outdoor areas are large and can accommodate big groups.

Folks! Everyone I've spoken too, TRF and otherwise and many locals have all mentioned FERG's as a top destination so let's go ahead and plan on that!

My cell number is (SIX-ONE-THREE).608.8386, feel free to drop me a text if you're trying to locate the gang, the bar will be loud so better texting than calling.

Safe trips to all who are heading to Tampa from out of town, I leave from Ottawa in about 14 hours!

Cheers!

Chris

There's been so many shows at the amphitheater, I forgot what parking is like at the Amelie.  Online it looks like a bunch of garages.  So, no tailgating / cookout?  Kinda bummed about that - CA tour we tailgated in style literally 100 yards from the venue, ate well and listened to Rush soundcheck with a good buzz.  It was surreal.  But I guess Fergs could be fun.
