  1. Hey John or whomever, I need info on the presale protocol. I do not have a citi card but was able to get the code for ticketmaster a few years back for the '09 show at the Gorge in Washington. Can anyone enlighten me on how to take advantage of the presale? Thanks much, Jim in Seattle

    1. Hey Jim -

      Good to hear from you as always (by the way, you can enter in your name in the comments drop-down box so your comments don't appear as 'anonymous' :)

      Anyway - the best way to get specific Rush Fan pre-sale information is to sign up for the Rush News Letter at

      The details will be sent to all members of the News Letter - and of course I'll post them here as well.

      If history is any guide, the fan pre-sale will take place a day or two before the general ticket sales. It'll likely happen via a link through Live Nation and will possibly require a simple password.

      More information as I learn it..



  2. Great, Thanks John! It says the URL contains illegal characters. Duh, I must confess to not know what to enter in that part. :)

    1. Just leave the URL blank and enter in your name in the 'name' field -- it'll work :)

  3. Cool, got it and I signed up for the newsletter thanks very much. Onto my opinion of Headlong Flight. Well I have looked at other sites and many folks are negative: Alex paints a wall of sound with his guitar, too much. What a crock. This is one of if my favorite Rush songs of all time and I don't even have it to play on my gnarly stereo. My answer is if you don't have something nice to say, shut it and please do not buy tickets to the show. For the first time in many years in Seattle the show is not on a weekend, very strange as we sell the tix. I don't care when it is, I am there!


  5. Great to hear a tour is coming; however, very difficult to believe Milwaukee is not on the list seeing they've come here for every tour (or Alpine Valley - 30 miles). Certainly can see a show elsewhere but a bit disappointed at the moment. Here's hoping it's still to be announced at some future time.
