Anyone know when presales are going to start for this location?  It's the closest one to me and as a bonus, it's on my birthday.  :)

I'd like to know too since it's the closest to me as well.

Can't wait for this show...it'll be my 9th RUSH show overall, first of three on R40 (of the dates we know about, anyway), and I'm bringing my 14-year-old first-cousin-once-removed, who's never been to a rock concert before.  SO EXCITED!!! :dweez:  :7up:    :Alex: :Neil: :geddy:

I just hope the fiasco of the bots buying up all the good seats doesn't apply to this show but that's probably asking for too much.

Any idea where the best place to sit in this arena is?? I am taking my girlfriend and we're not that tall. I wanted VIP gold tix to get close to the stage, but Idk if our height will make that a poor choice..thanks

So far, I don't see that we're doing a whole lot of that here. :huh: I suppose there's some time, though.

I honestly can't remember if there are restaurants, etc. very close to the venue. It's in a fairly densely-packed area of buildings in the middle of town.

There are several restaurants in the area. I remember an Italian place, a Starbucks and a Chipotle. :lol:

So anyone get tickets? After refreshing about a thousand times I was able to get 8th row in front of Geddy. Best choice I saw and fine with me.

I'm not buying until later. Excellent work, though, Eagle.

115 on Alex side.  Same section we had last show except opposite side of the arena.  I prefer side seats anyway.

Anyone know of any hotel deals in the Arena district?  Two shows ago we got a room for $25 at the Hyatt Regency because it was their 25th anniversary.  Doubt I could snag that again but would like to find something better than 150 bucks.

Floor 1, 12 rows back! My first Rush show, and I am ecstatic! I wish Ticketmaster wasn't awful and offered all the floor seats on the first presale; I would've tried for first row. I hope I can see alright on the floor..
After watching the Time Machine and Clockwork Angels Tour, however, I am a little skeptical of Geddy's vocals. It's no secret he doesn't have the range he used to, but I hope they don't pick songs that require him to strain too much. Thoughts?

12 rows back you'll still be able to see just fine. Don't worry about the vocals, the live show is so spectacular you won't even think about it.

This is true. ^

Besides, for what it's worth- Clockwork Angels tour (the second leg) was my first Rush show since 1994, and I thought Geddy sounded great.

I'll be in section 106, which is Geddy's side. Just bought a few minutes ago. Didn't want to stress myself out with the pre-sale, and I was busy at work yesterday when the public sale started...popped on Ticketbastard just a few minutes ago, and easy peasy, I'm in.

I didn't care about being on the floor, or in the front row, or paying an entire week's wages for a VIP ticket. I'm just glad to be going. :)

I read on Facebook today that someone said it looked like they moved the stage back to make more room for seating. Someone else said they had done that before and they ended up further back than they thought. I hope this is not the case.
