Please come to the pacific northwest!!!
#102 - Posted 12/1/10 @11:40AM by VapourTrail [contact]

Ordered 4 tickets for my friends and me, half an hour ago for the Rotterdam show.
See you there!!
#101 - Posted 12/1/10 @8:11AM by Agent Rush.v2 [contact]

I hear you...I try to be very considerate when it comes to people behind me. But bottom line is I paid for my ticket just like they did. When your on the floor you stand for 3 hours and everyone knows that going into it. Most cases I think we all have good seats...its a crap shoot as to who ends up next to you or more importantly - in front of you.
I'm just happy to be going to see them again so soon. Good luck with your tickets.

If you are bothered by heads in front of you, that doesn't bode well for me, because I'm 5'0". My husband is 5'8" and he thought the seats we had in Seattle were great. I still think they should have a special section for us short people :) Thank goodness for the big screens, otherwise I would hardly see anything. Hey, maybe that's why there aren't very many female fans - we don't want to pay big bucks if we can't see anyhow!
#99 - Posted 11/30/10 @10:53PM by Agent Rush.v2 [contact]

Well Im 6'2" and hate seeing heads in front of me. Sorry for the typos in my last post. I typed a huge reply then for some reason it locked up on me. I could not bear to retype it all again. But you get the idea.
#98 - Posted 11/30/10 @10:48PM by Get up and go the distance [contact]

#97 Thanks for the info. I'll keep that in mind. I am very short, and even though we were in a sloped arena, I had to stand on tiptoes to peer OVER the heads in front of me, then DOWN onto the stage. That meant I could see Geddy the best, Alex sometimes and Neil not at all. I'm hoping the floor area will be better if I can get close enough to the front. I'll be looking for a set of 2 for my husband and myself when they the tickets go on sale for the shows in the west. It would be great to be in a VERY steeply sloped arena, but I don't know if one exists.
#97 - Posted 11/30/10 @9:20PM by Agent Rush.v2 [contact]

I always see sest or 4 or 6 on the various ticekt sights...mayeb a set of 2 if your lucky. I would love to find 3 other true RUSH fans who want to same thing I stand in the front row and mess with Alex and Ged and and have nones head in the way. Together we can get them..alone we are on a witch hunt

# 95 Is it really true that it is easier to get front row seats if you buy 4 at a time? I wish I lived on the east coast, but I'm thinking ahead to when they return to the west coast. I so badly want front row seats, or at least close to the front next time. The closest I could get for the Seattle show was row 23, even though I logged on the minute the pre-sale started.

#89. kill me man.

We each pay a fabulous price
For our visions of paradise
But a spirit with a vision
Is a dream with a mission...

My mission (short notice and all) is to:
~ride shotgun with you to MSG
~attend what im sure will be an all day event on Apr 22nd and enjoy seats near the front if not in the front row A.

that said...these seats can be abtained easier when buying 4 it seems...what I need is 3 others willing to join me in my quest for front...anything can happen

We must suspend our disbelief
you we are not alone brother

#90 You're right. I must have gotten too excited typing my comment!
