I heard back from the PR Manager for Greensboro Colisuem - for anyone going to that show, they said fans are welcome to send stuff, but they dont' gauarantee anything.  

But odds are it will get signed and returned.

I believe I had luck with Greensboro in the past as well as the Verizon Wireless Amphitheater in Atlanta.  I've always called ahead of time to be sure mail is forwarded.

I might try this with their SLC show. Maybe with a picture from a previous concert, or album cover. Something weird, like Counterparts.

Please post if you find out anything, I am going to the SLC show too and pondering trying out this autograph thing as well.  This might be my last chance!

Howdy all,

It is good to see RUSH is coming back around for another tour, and as I missed out the last time in getting my LP copy of Signals signed, I was wondering which venue on the current tour in the U.S. would be the best bet for having this done this time.

I will be attending the Prudential Center show, and I know MSG in NYC is generally out; could anyone direct me to the best possible venues to have an item shipped to to be signed?

Thanks in advance.

Peace,

Jeff

Well - I know Greensboro will accept things and get it to the band.  I'm attending that show and sending a drum head to be signed by the boys.

Many thanks for the info; I think I'll give that one a shot. Would you have the mailing address and any other necessary info for that venue?

Again, I'd go thru the CA tour autograph thread to see which venues accepted fan mail--at least a few of the same venues are on this tour itinerary again, including Newark.  If I'm not mistaken, some members here sent stuff to Newark and it worked out well, but I could be having a case of creative memory.

On a related note, I was watching a rerun of an old episode of Pawn Stars, and they showed a brief shot of an ugly green telecaster style guitar autographed by Rush--totally fake signatures.  Neil's was the most obviously fake.

I asked...  do you allow fans to mail items to the venue to be signed?  Verizon Wireless Amphitheater in Alpharetta, GA reply... Hello Greg. Everything mailed to the venue is delivered to the tour manager. It is up to that person to decide if their artist wants to receive it. We do not get anything back. Sorry.

So that would be a good venue to send things, then.  Try to time it so it arrives there a couple of days ahead of the tour at most, otherwise it may be misplaced by the day of the show. I used priority mail and had it overnighted so it arrived 1-2 days before show day. Address your item to "RUSH--R40 Tour, c/o Liam Birt" and enclose a self-addressed STAMPED envelope or bubble mailer or box--the key is to make it easy for the tour manager to just pull your item out, have the band sign, and stick it into the return mailer, seal it and drop it in the nearest mailbox.  Postage should be in stamps or else USPS won't deliver it back to you, because a postage label has to be dated the same day it goes into the mail.

Best of luck to everybody trying this out.  As long as you aren't greedy, and you check to be sure the venue will forward the mail to the tour, your chances are good.  I may or may not try again, but I'm not sure what I'd send this time.  I got a hemispheres cd booklet back from the Seattle show on the CA tour.

So living in Calgary could I just send it to the saddledome, for rush and the tour manager? And then include return shipping with my address and the appropriate postage, and I can get autographs? Seriously?

If the venue forwards mail to the tour, then chances are good, but it's not 100% definite.

Are you guys still sure about Greensboro? I called and never spoke to anyone but left a vm with someone there (I think in the business office). Never got a return call.

Yes - I wrote them and they responded back saying we were welcome to send things to the arena, that they will do their best to get them to the band/tour manager, but couldn't guarantee anything.  

I'm sending mine off late next week (remember 5/25 is Memorial Day - no mail service - so take that into consideration when you mail things out).
