Re: Front row for Rush, July 29th-Miami


Row A, Seat 3-

Arrived at the Sound Advice Amphitheatre at about 7 p.m....

Bought 2 beers and 2 cheeseburgers- $25!!!

The show started at about 7.30 p.m. and lasted till about 11....I just got home and it's 12.17 a.m.

The show, the band.....AWESOME!!!!

Geddy Lee, Alex Lifeson, and Neil Peart are definately among the best musicians in thier fields.

Alex has a guitar tech on his side of the stage, tending to the 10+ guitars he plays during the show... A red SG, Les Pauls, Fender Telecaster, double neck Gibson, Alvarez, and acoustics....

Geddy didnt bust out a Rickenbacker, prefering a black Fender jazz bass with white pick guard, a red one, and a sunburst one.....

Neil Peart had a revolving drum set-up. Played an absolute amazing drum solo on both!!

The show was GREAT.
Top notch musicians, these guys.

I enjoyed Alex singing happy birthday, and I liked the stage set-up that included 2 drying machines and a snack machine....loved the dominatrixes that came on stage!!!

Catch the 30th Anniversary- dont miss it Rush fans!

Cool!Is that 3.30 hours of Rush or was there a support act?
Anyway...Still have to wait a couple of months before I see them in the Netherlands.

They play just over three hours. There's usually a break right after Neil's drum solo.

Only five weeks to go and I get to see em twice in two days.
Sounds like I will require a day off work to recover!
