Ended up just getting lawn seats to get us in the gate, hoping they'll release some seats on Thursday so we can upgrade. 


But we did get the "Fast Lane" which gets us in early so at least we'll get a good spot on the lawn if it comes to that.

Sir Clinksalot, what time are you leaving Camarillo tomorrow for the show? Any extra room in yer ride? I know you don't know me from Adam, but not having to drive down there after working all day would be sweet! I'll buy gas and beer! I just decided to catch this show too.

Just saw this, I'm already in OC, came down earlier to work down here.

No worries, I ended up working a lot later than I intended, and at 5:15 with no ticket in hand and every conceivable route getting me there from 8:15-9:00, decided to shine the whole thing. Hope you and your buddy enjoyed the show! I have LA tomorrow to look forward to.

So here's my take on last nights show. My first concert was Rush in 1978 in San Bernardino. I've seen them every year except for the last two tours for various reasons. Rush has never put on a bad show IMO and this tour is probably one of their best productions ever! Between all the changes to the set ongoing throughout the show to the crew performing all their little parts in the show is just amazing.

I've never heard Rush sound bad at a show, this show was no different, but....  The first few songs Alex's guitar was way too loud. Now as a guitarist I loved it and his tone was so cool! But after a few songs the mix got way better. The band played nearly flawless, Alex made a few mistakes during the solo in Subdivisions, he is human after all! LOL I loved the setlist but was sad not to have gotten Camera Eye one of my all time favorites. I noticed the new light pattern (green, yellow, red) during the reggae part of SOR, cool! Also on a lot of the older songs Howard used the same light patterns he did back in the day and it was awesome I thought.

Throughout the show the I felt a bit of melancholy several times. Thinking how Rush was my live first band to see and maybe my last and how glad I was to be part of it. How Rush has been there through every step of my life. Glad I got to meet each member at least once in a friendly setting. It brought me to tears for a guy of 51 years old. I was sad, but at the same time proud to have been there since 1978 and a fan of their music since 1976. They've never let me down in any direction they've gone. They still have it for a bunch of old farts like me.

I took a ton of photos using a pretty good camera, no phone shots for me. PS: Irvine is a near perfect venue, except for the long walk LOL

Here's a link to 116 photos from the show.


Life long Rush fan,
Dave
