Got my ticket for Atlanta....

Me too!  After my experience today searching for tickets in the general sale, I am very glad I did the VIP pre-sale!  Sucks to pay that much, but I think those of us who had pre-sale tickets go on sale last week (the first set to go onsale) were very fortunate.  ONce word got out that VIP pre-sales through ticket master would be re-sellable, the re-sellers came out in force for this week's VIP sales.  Most seemed to sell out in 10 minutes or so, where the last couple tours VIP tickets remained available for weeks after they went onsale because (1) you were only guaranteed the first 15 rows, not a specific seat, and (2) the tickets were not re-sellable because you had to present ID at will call to pick them up and then they escorted you inside.

I don't think the new method is a good thing, because the majority of tickets were likely bought by people with no intent to attend the show.  I hope the leaches get stuck with those tickets that they are now selling for 5-10 times what was paid for them.
I just got the best ticket available that popped up. Don't need angst and complications where there need not be any. 125.00 seems reasonable for a decent seat and I am sure I will have a great time.... :codger:
At least you're in the middle.  Man, I hope your arm is better by then.  I'd hate for you to have to deal with that cast in the heat.

I was at the show last time they played the ampitheater. It was colder than crap. At least this is in the middle of summer. Wish I could make it to this show but I'm already going to two others. That's already insane. :D

After 5 Rush shows with friends and family, I've decided to hit up this show alone and experience it like that. Can't wait!! I'm a few seats away from being dead center in the whole place and usually I'm to the side (although 3rd row wasn't anything to fuss about) so I'm glad to see it right at the middle this time. No pillars in the way!

Looking forward to a preshow meetup to get a chance to chat with some of you guys!

That was awesome.  Everyone got to snuggle up and there was no humidity, so the sound was awesome.  I still remember Geddy saying:

"Dont' worry about us; we're from Canada."

That's a great setting for a show, as the venue is well away from the highway.  I would never see a show at that ampitheater in Tampa.  I drove by it 2 weeks ago; it's right next to the I-4 freeway.  No trees or contour of the land to help with the acoustics.

I hate ampitheaters.  I mean, l like being outside, but they shouldn't go straight back, like a seashell.  Why not make it a bowl?

You probably won't be interested but a pal of mine does have four in ORCH 3 row R who's wanting to trade for ORCH 1. My two are in ORCH 2 row M.

I'm 12 rows back on Geddy's side.  That's twice as far back as you are.

Hi folks ... he is a friend of mine, and he is most definitely looking for two tickets for himself (not to sell).  If anyone can help, it would be much appreciated!

Thanks.
