Rush 2008 tour ticket sales update

Thu, Feb 28, 2008@11:39AM | comments

S&A liveUPDATE - 3/1@10:00AM: The Music Today fan pre-sale for Charlotte is now up on the Music Today website. It will take place from Tuesday, March 4th at 10AM to Thursday, March 6th at 12PM.

UPDATE - 2/29@11:05AM: The password for the KQRS-sponsored radio pre-sale for the St. Paul show is SNAKES.

Round 5 of the Music Today fan pre-sale is nearing completion (noon today local venue time) although several AMEX presales are ongoing and will continue through tomorrow for the shows in Los Angeles, St. Paul, Kansas City and St. Louis. AMEX pre-sales for Quebec, Toronto and Washington DC end today. Remember, for the AMEX pre-sales the password is just the customer service 800 number (8003272177) on the back of your Gold Card.

Radio pre-sales for both Toronto and Washington DC are going on right now. The Toronto pre-sale is sponsored by Q107 and runs through 10PM tonight; the password is SNAKES (thanks entrenous). The Washington pre-sale is sponsored by 94.7 The Globe and runs through 6PM tonight; the password is GLOBE (thanks Hank N).

There will also be radio pre-sales for the shows in Los Angeles, St. Paul and Kansas City tomorrow. I'm not sure about LA and KC yet but the St. Paul pre-sale will be sponsored by KQRS. No passwords yet.

Regular tickets for the following shows will go on sale tomorrow:

Jul. 9: Molson Amphitheatre - Toronto info
Jul. 19: Nissan Pavilion - Bristow info

Regular tickets for the following shows will go on sale Saturday, March 1st:

May. 8: Nokia Theatre - Los Angeles info
May. 22: Xcel Energy Center - St. Paul info
Jun. 7: Starlight Theatre - Kansas City info
Jun. 12: Bell Centre - Montreal info
Jun. 28: Verizon Wireless Amphitheater - St. Louis info

So after this weekend the only show yet to go on sale is Charlotte, which will go on-sale next weekend with pre-sales next week.

Just a quick note/reminder that all times given on this site and Ticketmaster are LOCAL to the venue.

And as a final reminder, Music Today has graciously offered to run a promotion exclusively for Rush Is A Band readers - just like on the last leg. Three lucky readers will be randomly picked to receive a Limited-Edition Rush T-Shirt. To enter the Rush Is A Band T-Shirt Giveaway, email the following information to

* First and Last Name
* T Shirt Size

Email entries will be accepted until tomorrow. Winners will be picked and notified by Music Today the week of March 4th - March 8th. A big thanks to Music Today for doing this again - it was a big success on the 2007 leg.

That's all for now. I will have some more non-tour-related updates tommorrow.
