    It all happend in 2013 & 2015 & in 2019* Catching a t-shirt from Geddy in London :)* Almost catching a pick from Alex in Halifax :)(it sadly bounced off my hand when trying to catch it, but I love the fact that it was actually meant for me) * Being almost in the middle of the front row during the 2nd Halifax show!* Having my R40 tourbook signed by all three of them!* Being included with my red Dirk bag on the R40 Live dvd :D* Meeting Geddy twice in 2019 and being able to give him a Dirk bag as well :)

  1. Wow, just wow... I was there and it was surreal and very emotional as well! Seeing & hearing 3 Rush songs live once again wasn't something I was expecting at all! When the lasers hit the stadium after Ged had introduced YYZ it felt like I was back at one of the R40 shows I attended back in 2015... And then it hit me that it was 2022 and tears welled up in my eyes... I cried all the way through YYZ and I was still crying when Queen performed their opening song. So happy I was able to capture their part of the livestream on my phone after the show had ended so I could see them up close as well since I was seated at the back of the stadium during the show.
  2. Sure, I'll let y'all know :) Hopefully I can bring my pocketcamera with me to the stadium.
  3. I'll be at the London event. I've managed to buy a ticket an hour after the presale had started and even after it seemed it was sold out by that time. I got lucky by refreshing the page for about 100 times and secure a ticket after all.
  4. For me, it was the hug and kiss from Alex. For me, it was the image of Neil listening back to all his old work, for the last time, in the last year of his life... Jeeeebus. He apparently listened to TSS (HYF) a lot: We all knew him as a supreme musician, writer, adventurer etc. But also know he was this. A thoughtful father, reading to his daughter, her head on his shoulder, holding her hand. ‘Freeze this moment a little bit longer. Make each sensation a little bit stronger. Time Stand Still.’ He loved that album. We listened to it often, on 10. I invite you to do the same. Source: http://www.alternati...ark-rush-leaks/
  5. In the thread Geddy: 'There Are Zero Plans To Tour Again' there is a link to a pic on Facebook of the three of them in October 2018: Seems we only had to wait til Friday to find out... https://m.facebook.c...&type=3
  6. Thank you, CTM! I wish that I could live it all again! Me too! Indeed! But I'm glad I was able to go see him twice in one week. Those memories will last forever
  7. Super cool and super nice gesture! :)
  8. Hey Blueschica :) Loved reading your story and seeing your pictures :)
  9. I've been to two signing events in Europe. Signature: If you keep your personal message short, he’ll probably sign it the way you’d like to have it. I wrote The girl with the Dirk bag on my sticky note as my name and he copied that onto the page. I brought my Dirk bag that got me on the R40 DVD with me to the event and during the few seconds I had with him at the signing table I managed to have a short conversation with him about the bag and the DVD. He even remembered the bag from the video. I also gave him a Dirk bag and he really appreciated that. I told him that it was my husband’s idea to bring that bag with me to Toronto and when he signed my husband’s copy of the book (he had only written his name on the sticky note) Geddy added a cool extra note that said Good idea! Super cool!!! :7up: Photo: I’ve helped out a couple of fans who came on their own to the event in Amsterdam. They were waiting in line behind me. I was at the event together with my husband and while he waited with our books after Ged had signed them (the sig has to dry for a least 15 mins) in another part of the bookstore I was able to film them during their 15 seconds m&g. If you’re standing let’s say halfway in the queue then there’s plenty of time to check out if there is someone waiting nearby willing to help you out. Exchange phone numbers so that they can send you the video via whatsapp. The best thing about video is that you can choose which frame is the best for THE ultimate souvenir photo afterwards. Have fun at the event :cheers:

  11. That's awesome :cheers: So happy to see he's back on tour :)
  12. Oh man, what a week it has been! First of all seeing & meeting Geddy in Manchester for the first time ever was already super awesome! But the big cherry on top of my Rush fancake came on Thursday in Amsterdam. I brought my Dirk bag (which can be seen on the R40 DVD) with me to the event for the casual photo moment. And yes he recognized the bag from the video! Man, I was lost for words for a split second when he said that! That was so awesome :7up: I also gave a Dirk bag to the man himself. That was such an hilarious moment We both laughed out loud when I handed him over his own bag (check out my avatar pic, it's there on the table). For those of you who wonder where these bags come from: Dirk is a Dutch supermarket chain. Then after my own 25 seconds with Geddy I was able to hang around next to the signing table a just a little bit longer. That's because I went to the event together with a dozen Dutch super fans (all blokes). They were all patiently (and a bit nervously) waiting at the end of the queue. I managed to film all their encounters with :geddy: That was super fun. He even recognized some of these guys from shows that they've been to over the years because a couple of them are super tall and that led to several short and fun conversations between them. All in all this bonus Rush adventure was an absolutely pricesless experience and I'm so happy my husband filmed my Amsterdam encounter so that I can live it all again
  13. One hour with Geddy & Phil Wilding in Manchester (6/10/2019): http://youtu.be/o-lbS-PGcSE
  14. How about Amsterdam? I've already checked this. 525 km one way. Until he didn't plan some dates in the south of Germany, I think I have to skip the event. It's way too expensive just too see him for a few minutes. There is a Flixbus running from Mannheim to Amsterdam for 31 Euros (one way) on 6/13 and you can get a returntrip on Friday 6/14 for 26 Euros (one way). Would be awesome if you could make it :)
