Periscoping an Old Arena :
I'm a little concerned that the Forum, does not have an internal cell site system. Newer arenas and stadiums are built with internal sites or a DAS systems.
Most have been modified, but the Forum lost the Lakers and Kings back in 1999 to Staples.
The Forum almost certainly does not have a newer system in place, not enough human traffic into the building over the course of a year.
Staples gets 41 Laker games and 42 Kings games, plus playoffs, concerts, circuses...etc...It has a DAS in place.
I would not be surprised if video is hard to stream to an external cell tower. Let's hope there are towers right next to the arena.

Anyone know if a big party is planned for Rush and crew and family and friends tonight after the show?

I would also love to know what each of them (Alex, Geddy and Neil) are thinking right now.  I'm sure Neil is happy, but the other two?  Must be mixed emotions.

If there is one, we're not going to know where and when...

Maybe Neil will host it at his home.

That's the main reason why we don't know for sure. He doesn't want any rush fans around his house...

Well, I was just wondering.  I know they usually have an end of tour bash, but I was thinking that this particular bash would be bashier than all the other bashes they've had.

Apparently the arena has some pretty good WiFi.

Yes, it will be a party that he's like a return to the 70's with all the substances available at that time and was the foundation to the album COS, among others. No children allowed

They'll probably all go home to bed.

What do you think the cheapest I can get into the arena? I saw them in Irvine so I'm very satisfied, but...

Tonight is the last hurrah of the R40 Tour. What a great tour. From Geddy's improved vocals to the epic setlist to the legendary scoper Bob, this just might be the best tour they've ever done! Really hope this isn't the last we hear from them.
