Rush tickets just went on sale - BOSTON

For their last big tour...show in June.

Ticketmaster wants over $1,200 for good floor seats. I remember when you could get them for 40 bucks.

Sigh...

There was a time (about 30+ years ago) I listened to Rush day & night and thought they were the greatest thing going.
Think I paid $20 the 1st time (of many) I saw them in concert.
Now you couldn't pay me to see them.
Getty Lee's voice is annoying and in my opinion Neil Peart does nothing for me as a drummer.

It amazes me that 3 guys can make that music, these days 15 people on stage...when you listen to them it's crazy that only 3 guys can do that...

Debating. I shelled out some coin for good seats to their last show at TD and the sound quality wasn't great.

To be honest the excellent quality of the recent blue-ray's with the entertainment system cranked and it's almost like being there...and the beer is a hell of a lot cheaper.
