Rush to play the Ottawa Bluesfest on July 8th
7:09AM EST | comments (27) |

The lineup for this year's Ottawa Bluesfest was just announced this morning and Rush will be headlining the Festival on Monday, July 8th. Tickets go on sale tomorrow at 10 AM via Capital Tickets. We are still expecting Rush to add another Canadian date on July 10th, possibly as part of the Quebec City Summer Festival. I'll be adding the show to the tour section this morning. More details as we learn them.

Sure, Sundin had hands of gold and was a great goal scorer but that was all.
Alfie had the total package.... O and D and was a far better leader than Sundin. Mats was given the C because he was the best player on the Leafs, not necessarily because he was a leader. That's minor hockey stuff.

alfredsson never was close to sundin's talent. ever.
i love rush.

This is new ground for you as it is March and the Leafs aren't sucking hind teet.
Still plenty of time to implode.... and they will.

Go Sens Go

I scored row 9 in the Gold Circle seats....... no promo code needed.
Tickets were $150 each.

Anyone have the Promo code Capital Tickets are asking for?

1/2 hour to go and I will check back often.

I was at the 2010 Bluesfest show. I was in the Gold Circle seats seperated only by a metal barrier. Those in GA were packed in like sardines. I had a few offers from people to get them a water etc as they could not get out.
After the show I saw that people improvised their bathroom needs in the form of hundreds of plastic water bottles that were not full of water.
GA is a young mans game as far as I am concerned.

#15 - Their yours. I will contact you offlist.

#17 - From all i've read and heard about the 1979 concert, so many unfortunate factors involved pre-show before the doors even opened (or were smashed through in this case by the force); numbers of people, not enough doors opened to deal with the flow, poor crowd mgmt and security, etc. I remember when i first saw Rush in Rio (i'm assuming GA in that instance?) can only imagine the magnitude of crowd control necessary to keep a crowd like that safe. One of my favorite DVD's.
