I'm staying out by the airport. Anyone else out near the airport, and do you want a ride to the venue?

I am,

Cheap hotel about 3 miles from the airport. I get in about 4:30 am the day of the concert. What time are you heading there?
I'm driving down from Seattle on the 20th so I will already be there. That's not a typo is it, arriving at 4:30 am? If that's correct you will be really tired. If you want you can crash at my hotel until you are able to check into yours.

Thanks,

Its all good. I work nights so I will be fine. I want to go early to check out the area around the arena. The hotel told me I can check in when I get there. Not going to charge me for staying the next day before I come home. :D I will take you up on the ride and pay you for it. When will you be going? :cheers:

I will PM you as the date gets closer and we hear more about pre concert events. Then we can decide what time to head to the arena as it doesn't matter to me. No paying for rides though, it 's payment enough to meet another TRFer

Just got my tickets, new to this forum and this is my first post.  This will be my 6th Rush show, but the FIRST one for my son, who of course is as big a fan as his old man.  We are vacationing on OR coast the week before the show and hitting the concert on the way home to Boise.  I'm not telling him either, so when we arrive to the venue is when he will find out.  He's gonna freak!!  :)
Totally badass man! PLEASE be sure to let us know about his reaction when you get to the Moda Center.

So are there any bars in the area, a quick look on google maps shows just hospitals and hotels.  I haven't been in that area of Portland for about 5 years but I don't remember a lot of good meetup type places there, it's too far out of downtown.

I am sure there are places close by.

That is awesome, your son will be so excited when he finds out he's going to see the Trio! I'll also be driving up from Boise so the trip will be worth it!

I'll be there; Sec 113 Row J. I'm excited to see Rush at the Moda center instead of driving several hours to one of the outdoor venues like the last 2 tours.

I remember back in the 70's reading how they would always play in Medford, Oregon. How far is that from Portland?

It's about 3.5 hours or so from Medford to Portland depending on where you start.

Thanks,

When I would go in to the 7- Eleven stores to take a peak at the latest Circus magazine the tour always seemed to have Medford on it.

Hopefully you people that got floor seats won't be disappointed. This is a flat floor, not like an amphitheater with slope, so if you're not really tall or pretty close, you'll be looking at the big screens to see the band. I'm sure it will still be a good show but those of us in the first level off the floor will probably have a better view. Besides, I've seen them and they ain't much to look at these days.

Most of their shows (possibly all the indoor area shows) are a flat floor, so that's nothing new.  And I beg to differ about them not being much to look at these days :)
