Checking in. Section 107! If anyone up front is looking for a view from farther back, I'd be happy to trade.

Looking forward to the show that night. If there are fans here who want to meet up at Murphy's Taproom for the Rush fan get together, there may still be room.

 

According to Stephanie, the organizer, there will all kinds of munchies, a viewing screen for watching Rush videos, and generally hangin' out.

 

I think right now, the price per person to go to this is $25.00 NOT INCLUDING beverages.

I doubt I'll be attending any of the pre-show activities since I'll be travelling all day thursday to get to NYC for the Flying Colors show and then catching a train at 2:40am to Boston.

By the time I hit Manchester at 11:45am all I'll want to do is take a nap in my hotel.. heh!

Anyone who knows me knows that a few Rats and I NEVER eat or drink anything besides water before a concert- I could probably just stop buy the Taproom and meet people like I did at Stout last year, but no way am I paying $25. It will be awesome to meet some of you in person, wherever you end up!

Yeah, usually when it's at an outdoor venue, I just lurk around, talk to people, listen to sound check, talk to MORE people, get inside - barely eat or drink anything from pure excitement of the show and then let the evening roll on out.

 

 

For a indoor venue, not sure but I don't want to pay a party fee http://www.therushforum.com/html/emoticons/no.gif

I bet we'll be able to just mingle with a glass of water if necessary http://www.therushforum.com/html/emoticons/wink.gif

It's hard to gauge but I know that the gathering at Murphy's is in a private room that is reserved for functions.

Just booked my flights!

Southwest is having a really decent sale right now and I was able to get the airfare portion of my trip basically cut in half. $157 to fly to NYC then back home after the Manchester show.

 

Yeah.. I know.. that doesn't make sense!

 

 

Flying to NYC on 9/6 to see Flying Colors

Train from NYC to Manchester ($63)

Then Flying home from Manchester

 

I'm so glad I don't have to spend countless hours in a rental car doing all that driving around.

 

 

So the actual travel portion of the trip comes out to $220.

Now I just need Priceline to stop being cranky and give me the hotel I want and I'll be set.

I'm really looking forward to this. I remember going the VT opening show in Hartford. We'll be the first fans to know what they'll be playing. Then we can brag to everybody, blahahahaha!!!!!

Absolutely. There are five major reasons why I'm going to opening night.

 

(1) It's nearby!

(2) No setlist spoilers! Everything is a surprise!

(3) Geddy's voice will be well rested!

(4) Shorter wait!

(5) The crowd will be wild!

Opening nights are always exciting.

We'll be the first ones to see the entire stage setup.. the opening videos.. all that good schtuff.

 

I cannot wait for my little east coast trip.

 

Flying Colors in NYC and then RUSH in MHT.

Gonna be a GREAT little weekend http://www.therushforum.com/html/emoticons/smile.gif

and of course, we can ruin everyone's day by giving the setlist to everybody when they aren't looking.

Me too! I'm looking forward to so many "firsts" on this tour - first opening night, first show in their hometown and first RushCon (Toronto), first show with very decent seats (third row Pittsburgh), first tailgate (Bristow)...I can't wait!

 

We're staying in the Holiday Inn Express about three miles from the venue in Manchester...anyone else?

I don't have hotel booked yet. Wanted to stay with my sister but I don't think that will happen. Depends on who I carpool with and other plans. If anything, I can get a place to stay an hour or so from the venue so it's not too packed.

 

 

 

Also waiting for my bonus from work to tell me where I will be staying http://www.therushforum.com/html/emoticons/unsure.gif http://www.therushforum.com/html/emoticons/laugh.gif Super 8 or 4 Seasons http://www.therushforum.com/html/emoticons/rofl3.gif http://www.therushforum.com/html/emoticons/eyesre4.gif

you may want to call, because I've heard that hotels are booking fast. At least check to see if rooms are available even if you don't know where you are staying yet.

I'm a 10 or 15 minute WALK from the venue. This will be my second Rush show (Time Machine Tour, Boston, 2010) and I'm so proud that my city is hosting the opening night of the tour!

 

I made a concert re-creation CD for my wife for the show in Boston, since she was a new fan and knew only their hits. I was nervous about the secret playlist for Clockwork Angels Tour, but we've been listening to the album since it came out, so I can't imagine she'll be unfamiliar with more than a couple songs.

 

Plane tickets = $0

Hotel = $0

Rental Car = $0

Gas = $0

Rush tickets = priceless

I've decided that I want to attend this show. I've never seen http://www.therushforum.com/html/emoticons/2.gif on opening night and don't want to have to avoid setlist spoilers all the way until the Bridgeport show.

Now I just have to decide whether to buy a relatively cheap ticket on TM now or wait and try to get a really good ticket there in the last few days before the show.

I've got an extra ticket for this show, 22nd row on Alex's side, selling for cost.

 

PM if interested.
