Where?  I don't see him.
He's wearing an orange hat, slightly intoxicated.

I don't know if you're pulling my leg or not, but I see someone in what could be an orange hat in the third row standing in back of some guy with his mouth wide open and what appears to be a beard (can't tell if it's just a shadow).

Whether he is tipsy or not, I cannot tell from this distance.  ;)
Nope...it's Tom Healey.

Tom, is this true?

I know it's him...right after that pic was taken I walked over to get him. We traveled to the Forum in the same cab together. Me, Grey, x1yyz, and Tom. Then we hung out in Inglewood (In front of Steve Harvey's Fried Chicken in fact) afterwards, waiting for another cab for the ride back to our hotels.

Yes, Tombstone, you are correct, that's me in the orange hat.  The front row is what it is; the second row is people who didn't have tickets remotely close to the front of the stage but stood directly behind the front row railers during the second set because it might have been the last set of Rush "big tour" music and because there was no one to stop them.  The third row, actual second row, is me.  And I must say, I'm glad that the photo wasn't taken by John Arrowsmith.  John has a habit of taking pix from behind the drum riser that universally manage to catch my face behind a drum head, or blocked by Geddy's back, or totally obscured by someone's raised fist, or when I left to take a leak.  But he always manages to get the person next to me, beautifully in focus, with true-to-life colors, and suitable for framing.   Some day, I'm going to make a collage of John Arrowsmith pix in which I'm within the frame but not within actual view.  Going back five tours, I believe the number of photos in my collage would be over a dozen.  But I'm not bitter.  Crap.

Eagle, thanks for posting the pic, your effort is appreciated. It's a great pic. I think the band, including Neil, gets how we feel about them.

In the front row center, we can see the couple that paid the ten grand for the tickets we were all drooling over on TM resale.

Yes it's true about him being Tom and about him being tipsy.

If Rush doesn't tour again (soonish) then we're going to have to have a TRF meetup when some tribute band plays.
