  1. Dan Patrick: “Is Rush done touring?” Geddy: “Well, for the most part it’s looking like it for the moment, I would say. You know, I never say never, and people can change their minds, but it’s going to be hard to get us back out on the road at this point.” Dan Patrick: “So done, done right now?” Geddy: “Right now, I would say, there’s no plans to tour.” Dan Patrick: (pause) “Wow.”
  2. lol! Rocking out to 2112...
  3. "V.I.P. passes for an after show party including food and drinks" Based on what is commonly known about Rush M&Gs, I think that pretty much answers the question.
  4. QUOTE (byoungjr @ Oct 26 2012, 11:13 AM) I have two tickets in section 3 row A...yes, the front row on Geddy's side...that I have to get rid of. They are seats 13 & 14. Here is a photo of them... http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8328/8125021395_6f3d4b5878_z.jpg I was planning on going to Cleveland this weekend from NJ but due to hurricane Sandy, I will have to cancel my plans. I have to worry about my basement flooding and not actually being able to get back to NJ due to possible cancelled flights on Monday. I will charge face value, $96 per ticket, plus shipping. PayPal would be the preferred method of payment. PM me or leave a reply here and I will get right back to you. I will overnight them via FedEx with Saturday delivery. I am really bummed out about this... ...but hope a couple Rush fans can put them to good use. Dude, you make me proud to be a fellow Rush fan! Rock on!
  5. Great story, davey! Sorry we missed you. Trust me when I tell you, I had a LOT going on last night! ;]
  6. "No - no words. No words to describe it. Poetry! They should have sent a poet. So beautiful. So beautiful... I had no idea." Seriously, tho, I'm feelin' ya'.
  7. QUOTE (Running Rebel @ Oct 17 2012, 04:36 PM) Yeah, I didn't ask to many people if they were members here for fear of hearing, "Oh you're that ASSHOLE!".
  8. This is the best I could find: http://data.ticketutils.com/Charts/1000X/8...d81a680f7f7.jpg Looks like there are two rows of suites on either side. They're pretty much where the guy explained them on the phone (who was super-nice, by the way). You don't get your seat assignment until you pick them up at will-call. Had to go for it, though. I've already been 3 times, and my son was giving me the "wtf" look. Plus my Mom lives an hour from the venue and it's pretty much on the way home. So for us, very do-able.
  9. Omg, you're right. I couldn't resist, either. Jersey, here we come...
  10. Plus I'd have rather been at that Rush show having a (for me) sub-par (where "par" is a very high standard) then being anywhere else doing anything else. I'll take every chance I have to see Rush in their hometown until it stops happening. And I'll NEVER take it for granted.
  11. QUOTE (canadianice @ Oct 16 2012, 03:51 PM) T.O. crowd was not lame, far from it Well, sometimes it all depends on where you're sitting doesn't it? Hey if it (the crowd excitement level) was enjoyable for you, then awesome. My intention was not to be crapping on it as much as expressing my disappointment in what I saw. My last two Rush shows in Toronto the crowd was off the hook, and I came back with that expectation. Unfortunately, that wasn't what I felt this time around. Nothing to do with the boys performance which was as good as the other two shows I saw. On the plus side, we had a real good angle on ALL the strings this time, and it was fun to watch.
  12. First one's about the convention and the culture: http://arts.nationalpost.com/2012/10/16/th...e-cult-of-rush/ Also, there's a companion article where they asked Lotus Land (the Rush tribute that played RushCon) to review the show: http://arts.nationalpost.com/2012/10/15/co...and-lotus-land/ (I thought their comment on the crowd was... overly diplomatic. On the other hand, I probably wouldn't come up from the States and tell a local paper that a Toronto crowd was lame either).
  13. Yeah, good point Darth. Our seats, while not spectacular, were in the first loge section top row and we ended up paying face. Considering it was a last-minute decision to go, and already my 3rd show I have absolutely no complaints (well, besides the terrible sound, lackluster crowd... ;]). Band was great though, and we could see everything (especially Ged and the strings) really well.
  14. Only used them a couple of times. As a matter of fact, the last time was a few hours before the last TO show. They guarantee you get what you pay for. If you don't, they will try their best to get you same or better tickets, or you get your money back - it's that simple. So yeah - worse case scenario is someone sells you bogus tickets and you end up not getting to go, but at least you still have your money. The 10% they take in fees goes to that "insurance". But I haven't heard any horror stories. Despite the fact that I find the whole brokerage system distasteful, the reality is it exists; and sometimes it's that or nothing. When that happens it's nice to know you won't end up getting ripped off.
  15. I actually agree with the sentiment of the OP. When Rush was first eligible I would have argued with anyone that they deserved to be in. Back after the first couple of years of them being "snubbed" and people taking real notice, I took my first real look at what the "Hall" actually was - who was in, who was not. Since then the band themselves have came out and said (sometimes more politely than other times) that they just don't care. I know it means a lot to a lot of fans, and I fully understand and respect that. However, when I look at the overall picture, it just means very little to me at all. I'm much prouder of their OOC and recent Governor General's awards. I won't be voting for them for the HoF. If they get in, great. If they don't, that's just fine too.
  16. QUOTE (CygnusGal @ Oct 3 2012, 08:16 PM) So it's a good movie then. I have my geek card too and I 'm sure I've seen you at a few of the meetings. Damn - gotta work on a new disguise ;D
  17. Don't forget it's widely regarded as a bad movie. But I'm a huge Star Wars and Rush fan and I loved it.
  18. Bummer - wrong show for us. We'll be back home by then. Still looking for the 14th, but if I hear of anyone looking, I'll definitely have them reach out to you ASAP.
  19. Yup, Canada's own. And he played "Windows" in Fanboys - a movie most of the world except me hated. I thought it was hilarious - not to mention chock full of Rush references. =] "Rush IS variety, bitch!" http://sphotos-a.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ash4/425860_3638742654120_892277010_n.jpg
  20. Yeah, might just be my age or growing up with the band or whatever but it's a little strange and a lot cool that there's a whole new generation of Rush fans. I was talking to one of the new photogs of our local high school band (his kid is a freshman, mine a senior). He was asking me about camera policy in the venue and we got on the topic of the last time he went to see Rush - it had been at least 20 years for him. So I asked him what the motivation was to suddenly pick up tickets for opening night. He said: "my son practically begged me to take him". Too cool.
  21. QUOTE (traeplien @ Sep 30 2012, 07:25 PM) So, if it were up to you guys, you would ban people with opposing opinions? Not very secure in your beliefs, eh? Maybe we should create a perfume scented forum where all members hold hands and sing kumbaya as they lick each others asses. Whoa - hyperbole alert! You seem to be painting "you guys" with a very broad brush stroke. I didn't say anything of the kind. There is a giant chasm between wantonly banning people who disagree with you and not encouraging people who are motivated by getting a rise out of other people.
  22. QUOTE (treeduck @ Sep 30 2012, 06:24 PM) Feed me instead! What do you eat?
  23. Hey, I know I'm relatively new here, so I apologize if I'm stepping out of bounds. There are way too many troll threads in this forum especially. I know its hard not to vent sometimes, but that's what keeps them fed. There's a couple people in particular who came here obviously just for that purpose. I say - starve the trolls. It's been proven to work on other forums - they wither and die. And amen. /endrant
  24. QUOTE (HBKHBK @ Sep 27 2012, 10:17 PM) Hey I can pretty much guarantee that they will release some "production holds" (better seats) the day before or day of the show. I would just keep checking ticketbastard as it gets closer to the show. Yeah... thought totally crossed my mind. But it would be nice to relax when we get there, knowing that tickets are all settled. On the other hand, we're going up there to see Lotus Land and have a kickass weekend in TO. The Rush show would just be a bonus. =]
