Hi letterj - uh, yeah -agree with your sentiments on #5

I did go see Andrea Bocelli two Christmas's ago (i know, different ballpark, my musical tastes are a bit bi-polar). I paid a pretty penny, but it was a rare opportunity and a long time dream come true since 1997, when he released "Romanza" . I guess it's not too bi-polar - i like true talent and musicianship. What was funny was just a few months before I saw Bocelli in Columbus, Oh, Rush was at the same venue. I do have to say, different crowd - different crowd LOL. Nobody stood up until the very end to give respectable claps. I told my hubby, though it was a fantastic experience, i wouldn't see him again unless we happened to be in Lajatico,Tuscany, his hometown, and he was performing at the open air amphitheater.

I think Barbra`s top price was $500 and Stones were $800 in NY.These were not Hospitality which were £950 in London! The Stones only did 5 shows and would have trounced anyone on price alone as most were £400 in London even in upper tier-you had to be right at back of roof for bargain £100!!Needless I didnt waste any time on them-shame been to every Stones tour since 1973 but refuse those greedy prices-the excuse given was it costs more to put 5 shows on than do a short tour-maybe but you dont need the whole production scene-just some music.I wisely had 2 week vacation to see 4 RUSH shows in September-real music for real fans.

Interesting that among the rock bands that started in the 70s, Van Halen, Elton, RUSH, Aero, Journey, Kiss, Who, Iron Maiden, - RUSH did pretty well with 9,736, just short of leader VH 10,108.

Exception is Bruce and Roger Waters, who made mega bucks.

Rush should headline Jazz Fest in New Orleans on May 5th. It would be a perfect high profile showcase right in between their RR HoF Induction and European Tour. The Eagles and Foo Fighters headlined last year, so it does not have to be a jazz band(tho Rush is kind of Jazz Metal).

But it would have to be one set. They could play the first set(A or B) of the CA Tour with Spirit/TS/2112 Encore. 100,000+ crowd, it would be great. They could let the string section enjoy a few more weeks off before bringing them to Europe.

Also, do you guys think there could be a possible SNL Appearance in April to coincide with the RR HoF? Seems like a few NYC Dates are coming, so they will be in the neighborhood.
