D'Oh! I knew it was inevitable, me still being a relative noob. Wait - have I really been here for a year?!

Anyway, tix go on sale Saturday (3/31)!

Shall we all gather on the lawn? Mrs. Medic8r hates Rush (Oh, unenlightened wife...) so I'll be looking to hang out with friends who can appreciate the best damn band on the planet.

JP - Check on the "PreSale Info Here" link on the tour dates page. The internet presale for the VA started about 90 minutes ago. Today. I think all you have to do is register on the Rush site.

Thx Tom - I registered, but all the orchestra seats were sold out, and I think I'll go for the lawn, which is not for presale. Guess I'll pounce on lawn tix on Saturday, and fall back on home theatre viewing of R30 if I need to see them all big and close-up ...

Hey where did my post go? Did a crazed Rush fan delete it? Knowing me I forgot to hit [Continue] before closing the window. Anyways, what I said was...

Rush! The biggest Canadian band ever and only three Canadian dates in the whole tour! I think they have forgotten thier roots.

No more guest appearances on "The Trailer Park Boys" for them!

Murph,
I am a little pi$$ed at the tour schedule as well! Rush are playing in Calgary and two nights later in Seattle. I wonder if they think that their fan base has shrunk in Edmonton and Vancouver? They did the same thing on the R30 tour. Unfortunately, I do not have the time to be flying somewhere to see my favorite band.

So THAT'S what it takes to bring Mike out of the woodwork.



It's been an interesting year. April 8 marks one year since the tornado here, and I think that's the last time I posted. My house escaped unscathed, but it killed 13 people and this little town was turned upside down for a while. That kind of contributed to keeping me from posting, and then I had a early mid-life crisis and bought an old Porsche. So that ended up occupying a lot of my time, too. Plus, I ended up spending a lot of time on Rennlist (Porsche forum).

I also met a guy who plays bass last June, and we started playing together on a regular basis. One thing led to another and I realized I'd forgotten how much fun can be to play with other people as opposed to noodling on the couch while I'm watching TV. So what started as a lark has turned into a band currently auditioning drummers. I finally got up on stage for the first time in over ten years about a month or so ago, and I've been having a blast.

To summarize, the gear acquisition syndrome has shifted from home audio to car stuff and music gear. But I still love my Axioms!

Well, I'm going to sit in section 206, row 9 of the White River Amphitheatre on Friday, July 20. I've seen them several times, but the thrill is always there.

Mike, those of us who were unaffected by those types of disasters forget them too easily. Thanks for the reminder.

I must say that I'm terribly envious of your musical and automotive pursuits. I hope they remain joyful for you. Seems like we have some drummers around here somewhere...

I've got section 201 row D for the USANA Amphitheater show in Salt Lake City, Monday August 6th.

Looking forward to it!

I also noticed the new album 'Snakes and Arrows' to be released May 1st on both CD and DVD. The DVD contains "high-resolution audio", as well as a 5.1 mix. I hope the mastering is done well this time around (less compression to the dynamic range).

They play Calgary, then London, Quebec City, Montreal, Toronto and Ottawa a bit later.

Odd too that they use the non-standard Separatist "PQ" for La Belle Province and not the postal abbreviation "QC"... for the Americans, PQ stands for Pays du Quebec... or "the country of Quebec."

I didn't know that. I have *always* used PQ; I thought it was the standard abbreviation for Quebec.
