Well, if the $250 price includes the 7 or 8 merch items, like the North American shows do, then yes. Otherwise, no.


No such things man! And I bet you payed for a seat not a piece of ground you have to defend with your teeth...


Yes, I paid for a reserved seat. But for the Vegas show, most of the fans were standing for most of the show and didn't mind (including me)...

I'm still wallowing in the 80's. Wow they got lame after Grace Under Fire! WOW!!! I'm told Roll The Bones is a turning point, so that's next on my list. I can't help but think if I was following them at the time, I wouldn't have bought another album after Presto, it would have been the last straw! If you can find it though, the Grace Under Fire live video is an awesome document of what 80's Rush should have sounded like for the rest of the decade!

Got the boot from the Omaha concert. I wish I would have gone now. La Villa started out as a polka. (They probably do that at every concert.)

Yep. Let's just hope they don't keep it that way... :wink:

One thing I noticed...and well, I hate saying this, really....but Geddy didn't sing like I've heard him sing before. Kinda off all night.

A friend of mine was telling me they started playing 2112 in drop D because Geddy can't hit those notes anymore.

Wtf? Really? Then why did you say you wish you would've gone?

That's true, or at the very least in a lower key. But he certainly sung ALL the high notes after Alex's solo in Freewill though...

That's only one aspect of the whole show.

For sure. As impressive as Geddy's voice is, it's of very little interest compared to the actual instrument playing!

And I forgot to add, that his voice is not off for the whole show.

I have been to TEN Rush concerts since 1980. Incuding their final show at the L.A. Forum in Aug. 2015.
