  1. QUOTE (jasonw2112 @ Sep 25 2012, 04:45 PM) I got it!!!!! My holy grail, of all signatures! I sent an 8x10 photo, along with a postcard with the Grace Under Pressure artwork. They signed the postcard, and spelled my name jayson? But that's fine by me! I'm just happy I got something back! Many thanks to those who provided all the info on getting their signatures! Dude, that's hilarious because THE SAME EXACT THING HAPPENED TO ME. My name is Jason also and Neil mis-spelled my name as "Jayson" when he sign one of his books I sent. Funny and unique, sort of.
  2. QUOTE (therm316 @ Sep 21 2012, 12:31 PM) QUOTE (Amy Farrah Fowler @ Sep 21 2012, 09:53 AM) Good to hear, Therm! Realize they only have so much time to devote to this stuff...maybe send the photo for your brother to another venue? I would imagine they would limit their time to one item, especially if there is a lot of stuff waiting for them. Oh I'm not the least bit upset that they only signed one of the two photos. I'm just eternally grateful that they even signed one of them and returned the other one with it. In fact, my brother told me not to bother sending it to another venue to try and be signed because he doesn't really get into collecting signatures. He's just happy to be in the photo, commemorating that great show. I've been following this for a long time and see a clear pattern - When people send multiple items to be signed in a single package, ONLY ONE WILL GET SIGNED. This is, I'm sure, something their management does to fend off greedy signature-seekers. It's that simple. I'm just sayin......
  3. QUOTE (The Garden of Rush @ Sep 21 2012, 04:37 PM) http://i1174.photobucket.com/albums/r614/rush3571/197_zps3c8bf84b.jpg Got this back yesterday from the Palace. I'm still smiling about getting this. You really have to give it up to the guys of Rush for doing these type of things for the fans. Not to many big bands would do something like that. And thanks to everyone on this board for the info. I would never of known you could do something like this. Anyone know any good frames for album covers? Both Michaels and A.C. Moore sell decent metal/glass vinyl album frames for under $10 apiece. Look for local coupons in the newspaper flyers or on their websites to get a discount. Or you could go the "custom framing" route and pay a lot more.
  4. QUOTE (therm316 @ Sep 18 2012, 08:05 PM) what's the typical turn around time if you get something back? Mine took about a week.
  5. I honestly don't understand the hate towards Working Man. It represents their beginnings - their roots - what got them noticed in the first place. For full disclosure, I have a sentimental place for that song since I played it in my high-school basement band back in the late 70's. I smile every time I see them perform this song live. Always will too.
  6. QUOTE (FenderJazz42 @ Sep 15 2012, 09:35 AM) If they do tour again they have a lot of damage control to fix. There are so many people that are so disappointed that we bought expensive tickets to hear 9 or so songs off of Clockwork Angels. Noone I have talked t was disappointed. You, sir, are definitely in the minority. The show was EXCELLENT (production and setlist) and the band is at the top of their game. Ironically, I think Rush is in the minority as well, when compared to their piers - they are actually progressing as performing artists and MOST of us couldn't be happier. Damage control??? Inconcievable!! Rush have consistently presented a HEAPING helping of new material from their new albums in recent years - this should be no surprise to anyone that is a supposed fan and has been paying attention. If you choose to sit the next tour out as a protest, I doubt you will be missed.

I actually think it is funny and unique. Cool! But that's kinda strange! I bet he did that on purpose! Since there alot of jason's in the world (myself included!), to prevent resale of the book. Possibly, but I don't think so. I have other books that Neil has signed for me over the years, but this is the first time he mis-spelled my name. Probably just a goof on his part. Just my opinion. I still think it is funny and unique at the same time. No complaining at all, mind you.....

  9. QUOTE (therm316 @ Sep 15 2012, 11:25 AM) Silly question, but did any of you that got your stuff back send a sharpie with it? I did that the first time, but haven't bothered since. They get MANY sharpies from everyone doing this and never return them. Waste of money to include one in your package.
  10. QUOTE (digitalmike @ Sep 15 2012, 11:19 AM) Hello to the forum, 1st post here! For those who have had success at getting their LP sleeves returned, how exactly did you package them for shipment? I figure it should be as easy for them as possible but I wasn't sure exactly how without getting damaged when they are returned. Thanks, digitalmike - Got to Staples and buy two 14 1/4" X 19" padded envelopes. - get 2 squares of corrigated cardboard the size of an album. - Insert the album, sandwiched between the 2 cardboard squares, into on padded envelope (include a handwritten note as a personal touch). - fold the second padded envelope in half and insert inside the first envelope. Address the outer envelope to the venue C/O Liam Birt, Tour Manager. Address the inner (return) envelope to yourself. Take everything to the post office, have them weigh everything and apply pre-paid postage to both envelopes. This has worked for me.
  11. Has anyone received their SIGNED items from the Bristow VA show yet? I'm still waiting.....
  12. My wife and I (Jason & Tammy) had a blast meeting and hanging out with all of you at this show. Good times and GREAT SHOW!! Keep in touch.
  13. I looked at the seating chart for my venue (Jiffy Lube Live - Bristow VA) and the ORCH seats only have 19 rows anyways. The vast majority of people in ORCH will be within the first 15 rows anyways. Just sayin.
  14. My wife and I ended up with 102, Row P, 50 & 51. Respectable, but not awesome. I shouldn't complain since I've seen Rush from the front row twice in my lifetime already. Once here @ Nissan Pavilion & once @ Hershey PA.
  15. QUOTE (jmdyyz @ Apr 17 2011, 10:02 AM) sometimes they never get to them & are lost- It sucks!!! other times they will only sign 2 items I wish they had rules on their website for this I hear you. I would just like my items back, signed or unsigned, at this point.
  16. Simple request for information : Has ANYONE (besides jmdyyz) gotten any of their items back (signed or un-signed) from MSG? I can accept if the items did not get signed by the boys, but to not even get them returned is a bit hard to take (especially since a fully postage pre-paid SASE for all items with enclosed).
  17. QUOTE (jmdyyz @ Apr 13 2011, 04:28 PM) MSG Items back - tour book signed alex photo signed MP Signed Ghostrider Signed NP Buddy Rich- Signed Awesome!! Congrats. Hope is fading for me. I was at the MSG show last Sunday with my brother-in-law. Great chow (minus the technical hickups with their videos). I mailed 2 items (Hemisphere vinyl cover and separately mailed copy of Roadshow to Neil) with USPS Deliver Confirmation to the venue early last week to arrive on Thursday or Friday before the show on Sunday. I have not received the confirmation or my items back.
  18. QUOTE (J2112YYZ @ Oct 8 2010, 01:11 PM) To me what ever age you are doesn't dictate weather you should do drugs at a concert or recreationally at all. It's the person's choice and from my experience with hanging out with some potheads when I was younger, if you don't want to smoke they would always just say "fine, more for me then". The potheads i've known in my life never pushed the usage on me at all. If I declined after they asked then they would just move on and enjoy what they're doing and not bother me no more. I guess i'm kind of different. I hit the alcohol a little more if i'm doing something I know I won't enjoy or am watching a band live that I don't really care for. That's when using drugs will enhance the experience for me, when I'm not that interested in what's going on. But if i'm going to see a band I really enjoy, there's no need for me to do that because I get enough of a "buzz" or "high" off the music and the show than any drug will ever give me. I may not like the smell of weed or cirgarettes, or the way a person acts when they're drunk off their ass. But i've come to accept it as part of the concert experience and there's nothing we can do to change that. I just accept it for what it is, focus on the show and enjoy it.
  19. While I would "prefer" that I don't smell pot smoke at ANY concert, I know that this will not change appreciably in the near future. "Mind-altering" substances (including alcohol) have always been part of the rock concert scene, and will likely continue until there is a cultural shift away from it (this could take decades - if ever). So, I continue to attend concerts and don't complain about what I see or smell - instead I focus on why I am there..... THE MUSIC. I also choose to NOT bring my children to concerts (for a variety of reasons). Just giving my $0.02
  20. I predict that this will collapse as this grows - one of those things that we will one day say "hey, it was good while it lasted". With their increasing popularity these days and with this autograph opportunity catching on rapidly, I can see the writing on the wall....
  21. I have to chime in here - 'g under p' and 'Ron2112' are exactly correct. This is a venue where you have to build time into your schedule to ARRIVE EARLY. The traffic issues will never be rectified since JLL is in a semi-rural area with surrounding suburb communities. Prince William County has no current plans to widen the road (or any other measures). It is what it is. It's a GREAT venue for see shows IMO (large, modern, clean, great sound and sight lines) - you just have to force yourself to get there early and tailgate (or whatever).
  22. QUOTE (Xanadude69 @ Sep 22 2010, 10:20 PM) I would have gone to this show but as a poor college student I just didn't have the funds this tour. The 2 hour drive to Nissan- uh i mean- Jiffy Lube is also a deterrent. The show is worth the drive but sometimes its not worth the parking at that place. Rush needs to play at Merryweather Post Pavilion, (only 20min from my house lol) I would vote against Merriweather Post Pavilion (I've been there for about a half dozen shows in the past). It only holds a fraction of the people as Nissan and the concessions and facilities are old and outdated. The lower roof would prohibit some of the stageshow (pyro & lighting rigs probably). Rush has progressed beyond playing those smaller venues in markets where there is a larger one available. On a slightly more selfish note - JLL is only about 5-10 minutes from my house in Manassas.
