Inglewood looked scary. And I'm from Chicago.

I've got some excellent footage from there with a guy named "Jigga", right outside of Steve Harvey's Fried Chicken.

A lunch box is only $4.99

Inglewood looked scary. And I'm from Chicago.

Be afraid. Be very afraid.

As we were driving out, I noticed how many Rush fans were unwisely walking to God knows where well past the Forum. I prayed for them....

I know since the Forum was renovated they are giving financial incentives to to top artists to play there to make the Forum relevant again, but it's really an awful place to have a show like this. Being in Inglewood, there's no restaurants, bars, hotels, or anything around it to make it convenient for get togethers or anything else. Once the concert ends, the goal is to just get the hell out of there.  But there are 3-4 places in LA that would have been so much better to play, including Staples Center in the middle of LA Live.

the Forum is a better venue to see a band. And now they have that outdoor bar on the Northside with happy hour until 7:00 :)

Our group had to leave the Forum grounds to find a taxi.  (Didn't want to wait in a line that was probably a block long!)  There were some, uh, interesting characters out there.  (There were so many concertgoers around, and on a busy street, so I didn't feel in danger, but I'm glad I wasn't there alone.)

We'll always have Jigga confessing about the five people he shot.

BTW Jigga, thanks for the shirt!

I was there!!!!
I felt a little bit like a celebrity...
It was an honor to be able to see that show.
It is still sinking in...
Whatever the future of Rush is ?
That LA show is embedded in my memory forever.

Still feels a little bit surreal, but I was there. My feelings were on a rollercoaster ride that evening, but the show was so goooood.
It will surely take some weeks to realize what happened there.
Best :rush:  experience ever.
