Just seeing Rush play live will be enough for me I think. For thirty years I never expected to be able to see them play, so I don't think it's quite sunk in yet that it's actually going to happen.

But the first two Rush songs that I heard were Distant Early Warning and Tom Sawyer - it would be the cherry on top if they play those two songs. Pretty confident on TS - less so about DEW!

What about you?

I hear ya. I bought Moving Pictures without having heard anything and fell in love instantly. Grace Under Pressure was the new one at the time, and thankfully after I turned a mate onto them, he bought that one. So Tom Sawyer will be awesome. One of my absolute faves is Between The Wheels, and they played that one recently.

I was once listening to Different Stages and, while I'm not a huge fan of the song, I had a strong feeling of being at the show during Closer To The Heart, and being all excited during the reintroduction after the solo, so that would be nice.

Spirit Of Radio is when I will definitely break down and sob uncontrollably. In fact, I'm not sure that won't happen on several occasions!!

We'll have to tee up a post gig meeting back in town to debrief. There aren't too many people who would understand the gravity of the situation except you, me and Kev!

I was at this concert back in 2002 at Staples Center. Their return after a 5 or 6 year leave of absence. Strong performance.

gaz, you are right about people not understanding the gravity of the situation. I bought Permanent waves in 1980 when I was 16 and was totally blown away. When Moving pictures came out, that was it. My favourite album ever and still can remember my first listen to it.
All these years of being a Rush fan and they never came close to playing in NZ or Aussie.

I have had  crap couple of years with health and marriage problems but these have left me with enough money o finally travel to see Rush.
Apart from the births of my  boys,  am expecting this to be the biggest moment of my life.

I'm very excited about seeing this show. I haven't seen Rush since the Snakes and Arrows tour in 2008. Scored great lower bowl seats during the pre-sale. I went for the $120 price.

Glad to be part of this forum.

It says 19 rows in the first floor sections, but there are only 12 rows on the Forum map for the Rush concert. They always have a massive stage in arenas.

Show your location if ya want to.

Nice! The sound will be great in the back loge. I saw the Presto tour from your section.

Has anyone seen a show in the new Forum from sections 112 or 125?  I can't find any pictures from either vantage point and wonder if they're so close to the side that you can't see anything.  I really want to see this show but getting tickets has been a nightmare so far

I saw the Roll The Bones tour from about there. Maybe row 2. The lower the row, the better. I was not obstructed.

Rush has played this venue over 20 times. The first was an opening slot with Ted Nugent on Dec. 1st 1976. Since then they've been the headliner.

Yea, lets hope for a very special setlist list on the last city of the US tour and maybe their final tour?
I think RUSH appreciates what the City of Angels has done for them all these years.

Contemplating coming out for this one, although at the moment I have no plane ticket, no hotel reservation, and no concert ticket. This might be a tall order...

I was tinkering with Priceline.com (yes, William Shatner...lol) and I can probably do it for a little over $800. So do I want to? Hmmmm......
