I've always been into Rush. Listening to the new Snakes & Arrows CD right now, and they've still got it! 8)

Dan, if Rush ever comes within a hundred miles of either one of us, the other better get a phone call that they purchased two tickets.

I'm sad to report that the last time I saw Rush live was thier Grace Under Pressure tour when I lived in Chicago. :(

Uh...well you got me by at least 10 years. Maybe longer. Last time I saw them Neil still had long hair.

These days he's starting to look more like Tom Hanks...

Why do I suddenly have an urge to knaw on a box of chocolate drumsticks?

Now that Alan brought up "Victor", Alex's solo album, I figured I'd mention it again if for no other reason than a song called "Start Today" featuring female guest vocalist Dalbetto. I'd never heard of her before or since but she does a very interesting Geddy impression with the vocal parts so it sounds much like an old Rush tune, at least vocals-wise.

Overall it's a very solid album.

That's not much of a tour. Where's the London dates? I'd even fly to Europe.

Harrumph, as they say in Blazing Saddles.

48 dates! Plus two or three in S. America soon to be announced.

No mention of UK/European dates yet, though last year they didn't start that leg until October IIRC. Patience, grasshopper.

Guess I'll be driving to Cincinnati and/or Atlanta. I saw them in Atlanta last year, which was the first show of the tour. Looks like Atlanta is the last one this time around.

I was hoping that they'd come to the Tweeter Center (formerly known as Great Woods). It's an outdoor venue and I love going there at least once a season.
