I've invited the 3 guys that I sat 16th row center with at the L.A. Forum for the G/P Tour. It was my 16th B-day.

 

Dude # 1 (bassist, singer) has RSVP'd for sure.

 

Dude # 2 (guitar) does't talk to these days for reasons unknown. But he talks to #1, so... who knows.

 

Dude # 3 (guitar) (my best man and oldest friend) he's not sure because his sister is due to have a baby in Sept. He's coming to Chicago next month to see the Scorpions and I have high hopes he'll make RUSH. He and I first saw RUSH at the L.A. Forum, Signals Tour.

 

Can you guess what instrument I play. ('play at' is more like it)

Turns out my dad and I aren't going to the Detroit show (even though, we're from Grand Rapids!!). Looks like we're getting Section 208, row 3, seats 5-6 for CHICAGOO. Only reason being is that it's on a weekend...This will be my first Rush concert! Super excited!

My best friend and me are coming in from Virginia.

 

We hit a bunch of shows in the 80s when we were in high school.

 

Needless to say, we both really dig Rush. We also dig deep dish pizza thus the trip. http://www.therushforum.com/html/emoticons/trink39.gif

I can't wait now! I just saw Time Machine DVD in HD and 5.1 surround sound. This is going to be quite the epic first Rush concert for me!

Who else is going out and getting a Chicago pizza after the show?

Haven't decided on wardrobe yet...Rash T-shirt or new CA shirt?

 

So where's an awesome pizza place in Chicago near the venue? (Nope, never been this close to downtown Chicago!)

I'm not as excited as I should be - I'm not a fan of concerts at the United Center. Saw Van Halen there earlier this year and the sound isn't all that great. Might be down on the floor, but where I was it was pretty terrible.

 

 

I hope the rumor floating around here is true - Rush, Summerfest 2013!!

 

 

I am looking forward to meeting up with ILSnwdog for the concert though!

It could have also been the sound guys. You never know, so many things can go wrong at a concert.

 

I'm just excited for it being my first Rush concert and all. lol...And the pizza.

Excitement definately building. We leave Australia on Mon. A few weeks touring Alaska, then the mid west culminating in CHICAGO!!! http://www.therushforum.com/html/emoticons/trink39.gif http://www.therushforum.com/html/emoticons/2.gif http://www.therushforum.com/html/emoticons/653.gif http://www.therushforum.com/html/emoticons/2.gif

 

Being from a country that doesn't know Rush exists, I'm relaxed about the sound at the venue, I want it to be great, but will be fairly easily pleased.

 

So have we identified a suitable beer / pizza venue yet ?

Well at least I can spoil the setlist in 5.9(?) and watch some youtube vids and listen bootlegs. It's better than nothing. And I got my money back which was a nice surprise. Maybe next year?
