New Rush Backstage Club contest: Win a Rush meet & greet!
8:25PM EST | comments (26) |

Rush meet & greet contestThe Rush Backstage Club is running a contest to win a meet & greet with members of Rush! From the website:

The contest you have all been waiting for: Win a Meet and Greet with members of RUSH! We will draw one lucky winner for every city on the upcoming RUSH Clockwork Angels tour to win a pair of meet and greet passes to meet members of RUSH while on tour.

IMPORTANT: You MUST have tickets to the show already in order to be eligible to win the meet and greet passes. Tickets to the concert are not included with the meet and greet passes prize.

NOTE: When filling out the contest form, please fill in the "City" field with the city where you have tickets for a RUSH Clockwork Angels tour concert. Do not enter the city where you are from unless RUSH is playing a concert in that city and you have tickets to that concert.

Only one entry PER PERSON. This contest closes on November 23, 2012. Draws will take place approximately 1-2 weeks prior to show date. If you are selected as a potential winner, you will have 48 hours to respond to our email stating that you are a potential winner for your city. If you do not respond within this window of time, your prize will be forfeited automatically.

Entrants for Manchester NH, Washington DC and Pittsburgh, PA must stay tuned to their email very closely as winners for these dates will be selected sooner than a week prior to their show and will have a shorter window of time to respond to claim their prize.

For all the details and to enter go here. Rush kicks off the Clockwork Angels tour this Friday in Manchester, NH. Thanks to Louis2112 for the heads up.

Just sent in my entry. Looking forward to the show on 11-25-12. I'll stay away from the "spoilers". Thanks Ed for the heads up!

Was fortunate to get meet n greet through a connection on SnA tour -- as others have said, it is a quick in and out. Professional photographer takes a couple of pics (they won't take with your camera) and the pics are posted to a special website where you can go and download.

Maybe they can have a second place drawing to meet the string section!

Rules state " If you are going to see RUSH on this tour in several cities, you may enter ONCE for each show you are attending."

So for the Toronto shows, how do you enter twice.

#1, it's really quick, and Neil doesn't participate. Just enough time to say hello to Al and Ged, shake hands and get a picture. All of which is very nice, of course, but don't expect any long conversations.

Entered! Even for five seconds, just the chance to shake hands and say "thanks" would be grand. :-)

#19 - I have the Hemispheres poster that came with the album signed by Alex and Geddy (I got it signed at the Walk of Fame induction in Toronto back in the 90's), but no Neil. Like you said I would never send it off in hope of getting Neil to A) sign it, and B) actually return it.

There just are no opportunities offered to get it signed. I was getting hopeful thinking that Neil would show up at the book signing of CA, but no go. So I just don't see it happening.

I heard that on previous tours, the meet & greets were photo-op only, and no autographs (I know Alex usually keeps a black Sharpie on his lanyard anyway). Is that true? And if so, WTF is the point of even having a M&G in the first place?

P.S. Yes, I know the guys sign stuff send c/o the various venues; I got an 8x10 signed by all 3 on the Time Machine Tour. But as any thru-the-mail collector knows, you don't send "good" stuff that might get lost or not ever get sent back, so on the off-chance someone actually wins a M&G, it'd be nice to get something really cool signed.

These meet and greets don't usually take place outside of North America but I've entered anyways just in case they've had a change of heart.

I thought that you could enter more than once last tour??
