I will have some tickets to sell shortly for the Wembley concerts, just need to check who can make it or not, but likely to have 2 or 4 for the first night and 2 for the second. Happy to sell them at face value to a real fan on here. Front block A2 Row 9 for the first night and front block A3 Row 20 for the second. May have one NEC ticket also, front middle block Row 3. Also, may have 2 for Madison Square Gardens going spare.

Rush trivia No 1. - the newspapaper on that album cover was an edition that reported the wrong winner in the US presidential elections

Rush trivia again - the signs in the back of the photo that say "Geddy" "Neil" "Alex" originally said "Pepsi" but PepsiCo threatened a lawsuit.

Something about their logo being so close to a woman's crotch.

Hmmm.

Sitting in the hotel in NY and four hours away from the opening bars of Limelight at Madison Square Gardens... just got the tickets delivered, only a few rows from the front. Smile Smile Smile Smile

Tickets above have gone on eBay now by the way...

Fab band- got me started on the whole prog rock thing (i don't think TT is ready for a "Yes" thread,but there looks to be takers for Marillion)

I gave up listening after Power Windows but fave albums Moving Pictures and Grace under Pressure- Still got the poster of the cover somewhere.

Discovery from 2112 is my test peice when poncing about in guitar shops- slightly less obvious than Stairway and I haven't yet been bottled or thrown out for playing it.

Nearest I got to a live performance was a tribute band called Red Barchetta in a bar in Port of Spain, Trinidad. Absolutely fantastic they were too.

now how bizarre is that ... Surprised

I had an odd tribute experience in Malaysia where a band in a hotel did a stonking rendition of Highway Star. Afterwards I congratulated the lead singer and said how surprised I was to hear that song out there. He looked at me blankly as he didn't speak a word of English and had done the whole thing phonetically. The barman assisted in translation to tell me that " Of course we do a good version, if you don't play Highway Star at a gig in Kuala Lumpur you get lynched" Confused

A bit off the thread, sorry but hey ... it's my thread.

BTW, Thanks for the ticket offers FnF, unfortunately I cant make the dates this time around - hope the boys do good.

Rush trivia No. 4 (I think most people know this one) YYZ is the International code for Toronto Airport and the opening beat of the track is the morse code beacon signal

Just back into work after overnight flight. Best concert I've been to and I go back to the Signals tour. Great performances all round. Slight change to the opening setlist. The new stuff was tight and a bit mechanical. Natural Science, Circumstances and Bangkok were the highlights for me but there were no lowlights. You do need to know the new stuff though, I think they played 9 / 14 new tracks fro S&A. Had a great view though will be even closer at London and the NEC... cant wait for the same again to be honest, still buzzing from a great night.

Trivia 5: "1001" comes from which song? Well, I'm sure you know, but checking into the hotel suite on Saturday and finding that we were in room 1001 was well... well you know what I mean...

I lived and went through High School and Uni in Ontario in the late 70's and early 80's so therefore grew up with Rush.

Spirit of Radio is still among my favourite all-time songs, but Geddy Lee's best vocal performance was definately on the single Take Off (to the Great White North) Wink

That would be "The Body Electric": "One humanoid escapee, an android on the run ..."

Still sing the 12 Days of Christmas McKenzie-style every year:

Seven packs of smokes
Six-packs of two-fours
Five golden toques!
Four pounds of back bacon
Three French toast
Two turtlenecks
and a beer ... in a tree.

Rush trivia no.6 ... I used 2112 as a description of a modern oratorio in my music composition class at uni. I got a 'C' because the teacher didn't think so. "It's all in the same key," he complained.

My Mum's got a photo of me & my brother impersonating Bob & Doug McKenzie somewhere. Very Happy

Oh, and that's the first time I've seen or heard the word "Toque" in 23 years! Cripes I'm getting old. Sad
