Part of Grand Prize for the Rush covers contest I entered is 2 front row tickets, plus a M&G for this show.

Not getting my hopes up. Lots of good, trendy entries to contend with.

But if I win that will be insane!


...I'm the whole source of everything.

Area around the Forum has improved a bit, but I still wouldn't suggest walking around there after the show (before will be ok as it will still be light). 

 

Advice, if you are going to be boozing it up in the lot, get stuff before you get anywhere near the Forum.

Going to the LA show, booked a room in Lawndale, about 8 miles south of the Fourm, I know nothing about the area, is it a safe area?

I practically live in Lawndale. It's safe in virtually every area. You're not far from Manhattan and Hermosa Beaches too. Those are nice areas.

Artesia Blvd, west of Hawthorne has some inexpensive eateries and bars. My suggestion is spend a day at the beach, check out the Redondo Beach pier etc. PM me if you'd like more info.

North of Lawndale at night - nothing worth your while.

If your into the craft beer scene, Torrance has about half dozen great brewery's to check out. Or closer to the LAX area you have Three Weavers Brewery and El Segundo Brewing Co on Main St, El Segundo.

There's also the Abigaile in Hermosa. Great spot next to a Fender Guitar dealer.

Dammit!!! The rotation has changed and we'll be getting the A set in LA. The tinkering in NJ/NY changed the rotation from B to A.

I have a feeling that this being the last show of the tour and with the rumors of it being the "last" show that we might get a special show, maybe all songs they've been playing.

I'd like to believe that, but it is Rush and the love sticking to a plan.

Last minute plan and me and 3 other friends will be rolling in for the show. Any advice on getting tickets? Is the Forum good about releasing tickets the day of at the box office or online? Need 4 tickets.

Bonzo died the day before tickets for the Chicago stop on the 1979 In Through The Out Door tour went on sale.

Turns out that I was sick as a dog on the day I would have been going to see them......

It was never meant to be....

That surely would be AWESOME but unfortunately with the time constraints with the crew, the show can't run longer.

Did you check ticketmaster's resale section for that show? The prices are INSANE!!!

I'm looking for a pair for LA too. The best seats I've ever had for many shows have been purchased on the day of. I scored great seats, 3rd row Loge at the Forum for Counterparts tour, 2nd row right in front of Geddy's mic in Baltimore for Presto, and front row all access pass for Pink Floyd at the Rose Bowl in '94.

Being close up is cool, but not really that important for me. So if peeps want to upgrade and find a deal before Saturday, and need to get rid of what you have, hit me up. I'll be playing the Tickbastard game all day Saturday otherwise or worse dealing with strangers in the lot.

Here in Seattle a bunch of seats became available on Ticketmaste right around 3 pm day of show.  Really good seats.  We scored 7 th row behind the mixing board.  Totally unbostructed view of stage.  It was great.  I think I could have scored floor seats but the guy I was with didn't want to.  Oh well.  Great show either way.  

 

Have a great time you guys! It is going to be one hell of a last show!
