Going to try my best and get tickets. I don't think I've ever been this excited to see Rush, this show should be incredible.

Going! Got tickets through VIP nation so have to wait until day of show to see where I am sitting. Will take afternoon off, hit the concert hall parking lot, listen to all the rush I can, barbecue and get fired up for the show.  Seen them every tour at least once, since tour of the semi hemispheres in 1979 at Comiskey Park, first Rush concert. Still have the concert t shirt!  Will probably wear it as this looks to be their last tour.

Yes, next to parking lot of Wells Fargo, large restaurant with outdoor and indoor seating - very good food and drink with festive atmosphere.  You can't miss it, it is large, and literally, right next to parking lot.

That's awesome.  My first Rush show was January 1979 on the Hemispheres tour also.  Have tix to 3 shows this year so far, Philly, VA and Denver.  Will bring my total to 35!!

The place is called "Xfinity Live" and it is owned by the mighty Comcast corporation.  http://www.xfinitylive.com/


Nothing to write home about, but its big, the location is good (park once, go there before and/or after for beers/average food) and if youre into sports and anything is going on, has huge TVs everywhere.

I've heard there's been a Lerxt sighting once or twice over the years there :)

Going with my Dad. First, and probably only time, for me so we paid for the higher end tickets. Got section 4 on Alex' side 16 rows back.

Chickie's and Pete's is very cool place but it's actually a few blocks away. I really like their porchetta sandwich, and of course, their trademark "crab" fries (which do not have any crabmeat in them).

Fantastic!!! It's been great to follow them through all the years, right!  Yeah, my total is somewhere around 35 as well.  Agree, favorite Rush experience was hearing them open with 2112 in 1979... For me at Comiskey Park, when the opening synth got blasted through the PA in the ballpark and everyone who had been sitting on the lawn, got up and ran closer towards the stage - Awesome memory!
