Rush 30th Anniversary Tour

Well I am hopefully going to take advantage of the pre-sale today for Rush’s 30th Anniversary tour date in Montreal August 21st. I know you might be thinking that the same guy who loves watching garage bands at the local dive is going to see Rush, a prog rock dinosaur of dubious musical merit but trust me it’s not all that strange. I have always been a big fan of Rush and just because I love one type of rock and roll doesn’t mean I don’t enjoy the odd bombastic “big rock show.” Rush know how to put on one hell of a sound and light spectacle and that is not a “bad thing” if the bottom line is always the music. I make no excuses for any rock and roll that I choose to listen to and I won’t start know. Rush are just one band of many in my internal iPod that makes listening to rock and roll so interesting. I mean, I’m not going to see Poison but then again, when I’m in the mood, I don’t mind them either! All part of the fun, fun, fun!
UPDATE! The first time I saw Rush was when I was in high school and it was the Moving Pictures tour (with Max Webster opening, a dream lineup for me at the time). I slept outside the old Montreal Forum the night before tickets went on sale and ironicaly enough, the tickets I just bought through the American Express pre-sale are in almost the same location (but at the new Bell Centre). Weird.
Later.

  5. I along with my sons who are 12 and 7 and nephew who is 8 and brother-in-law are going to see Rush in Phoenix this coming Friday. I’ve been a Rush fan since I was in high school and now my sons enjoy their music. They really enjoy it and we’re all looking forward to the concert.
