I am one of those people that loves to take pictures during concerts in an effort to capture the magic of a given moment.  Of the sixty Rush concerts I've attended a precious few images really show the glory of the band and Howard Ungerleider's lighting.  This is probably my single favorite image from the show in Indianapolis (September 13, 2012).

Another one of my favorite photos is this one from the Grand Rapids show (June 30, 2013).  At first I was annoyed by the arms in front of me but after a while I realized that this person exemplifies the joy I feel when seeing Rush play live.

And from the second Toronto show last year (October 16, 2012) at the Air Canada Centre I happen to catch the flames during the beginning of Caravan.

Brilliant shot!  Whether you meant to get the star burst effect or not, simply brilliant!

Nice shot!  The fans enhance the image.  Notice that he framed each member into thirds, well done!

Rather than attaching thumbnails why not just load pictures on a service (i.e. photobucket) and use direct links?

Just to throw in a non-Rush photo this is Thomas Youngblood of Kamelot during their show in Lawrence, Kansas earlier this year on the Silverthorn tour.  This photo always reminds me of the movie Alien for some reason.

This is probably my favorite ... from the S&A Tour. Even better considering how far back I was and that I was using a point and shoot. 

This show is special to me since it was my sons first show as well.
