Presale actually came through - first try for Gold VIP turned up a front row ticket! I'm 99.99% thrilled for obvious reasons, but also .01% thrilled because that's one less ticket that the brokers/scalpers/etc. were able to get their hands on! :) :dweez:

good work CD.  Lucky!  I tried checking the ViP presale right at 10, and it didn't appear to be on sale.  I was working and when I checked an hour later the only match I got was row 13.  Not worth it at $373.  I will have to try my luck in the public sale in a week.

Thank Boot, it was lucky and I'm incredibly thankful! Just checked and there is a Gold ticket waiting on Ticketmaster right now, row 6 if you're interested! I'm not crazy about the $500 price but I'll be coming from Manitoba so I figured I may as well go all out!!

Ya i want happy with the 475 dollar hit either so i got tickets from tickets todays with i got 2 tickets for 140 and I'm in row 14 seat 7-8.
I seen that there was a silver package for sale still when i looked later it was row 13 seats 7-8 and thats 373 a tickets so i feel i got a steal!

I may not get all the fancy merchandise but I'm sure it'll be sold on eBay, and you can get a lot of the merchandise online once the tour starts.

Super Excited!!!!

I'll be there! Grabbed Row 4 on the floor. Not pumped about spending that kind of cash on a show, but I'm sure they won't be back here. Spoiling myself and looking forward to rocking out with other RUSH fans!

Your in the building Hellion! That's the most important thing.  After a few search results for 200 level seats I managed to get into sec 119 row 4.  Not bad. These are actually the worst seats Ive ever had for Rush, and the most expensive but I'll be there either way.  I'm pumped, can't wait for opening night to see the setlist.  I wish I was one of the hardcore's down in Tulsa on opening night
Surprisingly as an Edmontonian who's been to many concert venues and sports venues I have never actually been in the Calgary Saddledome.  Is there any good place for the Rush Forum folks to meet for a beer before the show, other than the Venue itself?  It would be nice if they had a bar across the street like in Edmonton.

Agreed Boot, would love to be able to travel more for this tour but I'll take what I can get! I'm in for a pre and/or post-show meet-up, haven't been in Calgary for 20 years so I'll have to leave the planning up to someone more local!

Nice win, congrats!

Taking a shot in the dark here.....I'm driving from Manitoba for the show, and not sure right now if we'll turn it into a family trip or if I'll just go myself. If there is anyone going to this show from Manitoba or Saskatchewan that would be interested in sharing driving and gas let me know and maybe we can work something out!

I am officially in the building!! Just bought my ticket today :)

There's a nice pub walking distance from the venue! I'll look into it and check back. Went there once for a Rush pre-party and still remember walking the fifteen minute or so walk to the saddledome with about 10 other pumped up fans. Good times! :)

Hey everyone, only 8 days to go!  Is anybody else going down from Edmonton for the night and feel like carpooling? We're going down in the afternoon and looks like we have to drive straight back to Edmonton after the show.  PM me if interested.
