My long time friend and Rush traveling partner Brian were at the LA show. We could only get separate seats, both on Als side of the stage, same hundreds level, but different sections. We were bummed not to be sitting together at our last Rush show, but we were there in the building, cant complain really.
I was standing with Brian at his seat pre-show, no one was in the seat next to him yet. The show video started, no one yet, I tell Brian, I'm staying there till the person comes for this seat. No one ever showed! Great bit of luck along with scoring seemingly the last 2 available show posters. We hit every merch stand we could find and the last one we came across had 2 left, We checked a an others we saw after that, we wanted to grab one for a friend but no luck. This wasn't long before showtime, so no surprise they would be gone by then. I don't recall if the band advertised those posters, so we had no reason to get there early, we were packing in as much sight seeing as possible. Also, thankfully, the anime show that was recently at the Forum left a load of poster tubes behind so the merch peeps were giving those out with the posters.
So many little victories that night............see what I did there.
