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...
If you've got about $1000 disposable cash....then you have a plan.
$200-500 stub hub concert ticket
$200-500 plane ticket
$200-500 hotel
$200-500 food,drink and swag
Experience....Priceless

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......

You know you want to.

There's a nice lower bowl seat on Geddy's side for $205(resale, but face value!). It's hidden In Sec. 106, on the aisle. All resale seats around it are $300+. Good luck.

I am in the same boat, but hoping to change that today!  Going to book the flight and hotel.  Hoping to score a pair of tickets in the next couple of days.  I am coming from Cleveland, Ohio.  If anyone has 1-2 tickets they are looking to unload please contact me; timdog83@gmail.com

I'm going, and can't wait, but I don't think they'll play anything new for this tour if they don't start soundchecking it.  I just don't think these guys "wing it" like that.

I can't believe how sold out this show is and how much the dwindling remains of resale tickets are going for.

Those front row center seats? There were 4. So somebody shelled out 20k for front row center Rush. Either that, or the guy who had 4 pit tix figured out listing all four at once at 10k a pop was unwise.

Then again, maybe somebody really did want the once in a lifetime experience for 20k. It is the very last Rush show, after all. Still....are there big celebrity Rush fans that would shell out 20k for front row center? It wouldn't be Paul Rudd or Jason Segel, they're gonna be backstage.

I had to sell my Irvine tickets and attend this one instead. As much as I prefer outdoors over indoors...I just couldn't miss the last Rush show. Don't have nearly as good of seats, but....it's all about history at this point.

I'm pretty sure The Forum show doesn't have a pit.

OMG, you Rush nerds are so literal for being fans of a figurative band. :)

Yes, there's no pit. I've been to the Forum hundreds of time. It was a figure of speech...i.e., the first 10 rows of any venue. Geez.
