Spot on. I was at the Irvine show. Took my wife who was not a Rush fan, only had heard a handful of radio tunes. I said to her, this is an event, not for the light hearted, it will be long and it will be great, but it might be tough if you don't know the music. I gave her a cd with 80% of the set list C about 2 months prior. We got to the parking lot at 5 and parked closest to the back of the stage-about 200+ yards away. Within minutes I could hear them doing Subdivisions for soundcheck. Chills hit me and I got an all over body buzz that never went away until 12:30 that night waiting to get out of the parking lot from hell.
The show was amazing. I have never seen so many fans all in sync with their love for the band and positive energy, it was surreal. I wept 5 separate times during the show just from pure joy and knowing this might be the last time I see them. I never stopped singing as the tears formed. I had crappy seats but it did not matter and it didn't matter to everyone in my section. Hard to put in to words how these shows really are and how they impact certain people, but for me it was a religious experience. The feeling inside was electric. It was like nothing I have felt. The time went by so quickly, I could have stood there another 3 hours and not noticed.
My wife was blown away at the musicianship, the feeling communicated through their music and band in general. She finally got what we have all known for the entire time. Magic. This is what life is all about.
I watched the entire Forum show on Periscope and got choked up again. Bill is the man for broadcasting the entire show.
