I'm interested in getting some good seats if anyone has a couple available for the KC show. At least two or as many as four tickets would work for me.

Heard on the radio today that the show was sold out, until the venue opened up more tickets on the side of the stage. Wonder if they sold the upper level. Regardless, glad there will be a good turnout for the last show.
If you see a guy with two small boys, one of which wearing a red Rush tshirt (present for his 9th b-day tomorrow!), that's me!

Just got back from the show. Outstanding. Really impressed with the string section. They were so into it, rocking out, singing along. I dug how Neil switched kits mid-song during Clockwork Angels and then switched back. His solos were really excellent, I think splitting them into shorter solos was very effective. LIght show was awesome.
YYZ was epic. They tore it up. And Paul Rudd came out and goofed around with the string section, pretending to conduct them, and doing his "slappin' the bass" thing. Headlong Flight was another high point for me.
Hard to believe these guys are as old as they are and playing at the level they're playing at. I've been seeing them since the Signals tour and they've never played better, IMO. And Geddy was hiting all the high notes. He really gave it his all. He was hoarse when he said his good nights at the end of the show.
Although the upper deck was curtained off, the place was filled and the crowd was great. Glad I got to see the last show of the tour! I hope they've got at least one more tour in them!

I agree with everything said in the previous post. The show was a real treat and the band just seemed to be so carefree and happy (probably because the tour was finally over). My fourth show of the '13 leg of the Clockwork Angels tour and this one would be hard to beat.
If anyone comes across a bootleg of this show please drop me a PM. There were some real "moments" last night that I would like to re-live.

I'd like a second opinion of the KC show.
I saw them this year in Austin and then in KC. The KC show sounded like they were playing that songs a little too fast. like in a hurry.
the second set seemed more restrained (probably for timing & cues). but that first set was too fast and a litle sloppy.
not that I minded. it made it interesting. perhaps they were excited?
Geddy's voice had no middle range. He could hit those high notes, but just under those-he had problems. The Austin show seemed smoother, vocally.
KC is a nice litle town. cool downtown area. that Pizza Bar across from the Sprint Center was very cool. Shame the Rainmakers weren't playing that weekend.
