#59 - i laughed when i read your post, and in the words of a well known band "It takes some time and trouble to separate from the stock, you sometimes have to listen to a lot of useless talk". Not that the care for a childs ears is not important, but i have a feeling the dad's got it covered.

Come on people, help the guy out here. I only went to the Indy show and didn't see the time, but there's a 20 minute window to get there before the 2nd set starts. With all the movement in the concourse with beer refills, he may be distracted enough, not realizing something just happened in the arena.

#51, #53

Agree that the mandatory considerations are safety and respect for others(starting to sound like The Garden here). I and not on the floor, off on the side. If there was a lawn I'd be there but it's and indoor show (arena) so this seemed the best compromise.

Glad everyone had a great time, sounds like another amazing show. To my initial question, did anyone happen to notice what time the second set started?

The Caravan thunders onward. To the distant dream of the city Rush Rocks!

#54, What a great review. Sounds like this reviewer actually "likes" Rush! What a refreshing comment. So tired of these people reviewing the band, when its fairly apparent that they don't even like their music. Like "Big Al" oncesaid,"who cares what somebody who doesn't stay for the show thinks"Thanks for sharing the great review kj.

#51, I agree that if you pay a lot for your ticket, especially on the floor, where everyone is standing on one level, people should be considerate of others viewing experiance. It's just the polite thing to do, and Rush fans are g enerally polite people, as compared to other rock concert goers. IMO. #53, you are not the first Rush fan to enjoy the boys through teary eyes. I know that this rush chick tears up just listening to them on an MP3 player.
