Rush Time Machine Tour 2011UPDATE - 2/1@7:05AM: The fan pre-sale is now listed at the Music Today site and will begin at 10AM PST.

UPDATE - 1/31@1:13PM: The show is now listed at Ticketmaster. As expected, there will be RUSHVIP and AMEX Front of the Line pre-sales beginning tomorrow, February 1st at 10AM PST. They also listed that other various pre-sales will begin on Wednesday, February 2nd. Although not yet listed at the Music Today website, I expect there will also be a fan pre-sale beginning tomorrow morning at 10AM.

There has been a lot of confusion over the last couple of weeks regarding the status of the supposed Rush show on June 30th at the Rogers Arena in Vancouver. When the dates for the 2nd North American leg of the 2011 Time Machine Tour were announced a couple of weeks ago it was mentioned that a Vancouver date would occur but no details were given at the time. Then later that week the Rush iPhone app began listing the show as scheduled for June 30th at Rogers Arena, but sometime last week the date was removed from the app's listings. Now it looks like this June 30th date at Rogers Arena has finally been officially confirmed as reported by Classic Rock 101 and listed at Tickets go on sale this Friday, February 4th through Ticketmaster although it's not listed as of yet. That means that if there are pre-sales they will take place this week, likely starting tomorrow. I'll keep this thread updated with information as we learn it. Thanks to hermy for the heads up.

I am not trying to be on the fence about attending the show.

I just remember when I saw Santana in 2008 at Roger's Arena with a friend of mine. The one drawback was trying to get out of the arena without getting separated from my friend.

I don't like getting lost in things that feel like complicated mazes with trying to escape out of.

The Rock 101 radio station in Vancouver ran their first 40th Birthday Bash at The Commodore Ballroom with a performance from Bachman & Turner.

The Rush announcement and gig is the second big treat as part of the 40th Birthday Bash of the radio station.

DJ Brother Jake Edwards mentioned briefly in the announcement of Rush coming to Vancouver to perform that he was at Geddy Lee's house in Toronto and could not believe the size of his backyard.

At last Vancouver confirmed! Dont know why it took so long as venue didnt have anything around that date! Bit cheaper as well which is welcome. Nice end to a trip to LA & Vegas-nice venue as well!! lovely city-30 yrs since my first visit there-I missed RUSH by weeks then!!
Anyone debating whether to go-its worth it judging by last yrs Quebec/Toronto shows! If only it was $60 like Quebec for the whole 11 days inc Maiden, Santana, Rush etc!!

Got tickets for The Gorge first I guess that I must look into the logistics of going to Vancouver show first!
