    I plan on being there. I was kind of hoping that they'd play on the commons, but I'm just happy to be able to see them at all.

    If you look at their schedule, there's room for a second show. Maybe that will happen.

    We got lower bowl by the stage 4 rows up. Happy with our seats!

    A friend was getting the tickets - ended up getting them in nosebleed upper bowl - I told him to sell ours on Kijiji - already gone at a profit.

    Hoping for a second show now. :x:

    All of section 51 was sold in the pre-sale. The closest I could get on the floor was section 56. Lower bowl - 9 / 22 were gone so went with 10.

    I'm going with my dad and brother. We couldn't get 3 seats together, so we're all in separate sections :lol:
    I think the tickets we got are in sections 11, 15 and 18. Not sure how we're going to decide who gets to sit where yet lol.

    Concert is on July 12th - their next show after that isn't until July 24th - Checked Metro Center web site and nothing booked on 11th or 13th - Lots of potential for a 2nd show I hope.

    Our tickets are on the close side of Section 22, a couple rows up from the player benches. Very excited!! We may have two tickets for sale in Section 23, but I'm waiting to hear back if someone else wants them. We bought two sets to make sure we got some.

    Nice to see a bunch of Rush fans on RC! They're not only just one of the best bands in Canada, but around the world also. One of the best bands to see live too!

    Glad they're finally in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. They should have been in a long time ago.

    A few months back there was a series on HIFI on Bell TV, called Backstage Secrets, showing all the work that goes into putting together a Rush concert. There were probably 6 or 7 hour long episodes, all showing a different part of the setup, from the lighting, speakers, instruments, etc. It was pretty crazy how much work goes into setting up and tearing down all the gear.

    I couldn't go to their show in Hamilton last weekend due to work, but friends told me it was amazing as usual.

    Sounds like the Metro Centre is in for a couple of great shows this weekend.

    Awesome concert last night - we were one section over from the Trailer Park Boys - Ricky, Julian, Bubbles and Randy.

    I liked the "new stuff" it's real heavy. Nice.
