I was due to see Rush at Wembley last night but couldn't go because I developed an infection in my leg that prevented me from walking or sitting properly. As you can imagine I was less than chuffed at having to stay at my brother's home while my best mate, my brother & my nephew went to see them.

They couldn't get anyone else to go to use my ticket and, rather than sell a £35 ticket to a tout for £10 (who would then sell it for £100), they gave my ticket away - which is fair enough, I have done that before. They bought me back a t-shirt which didn't help my mood in anyway - especially as the infection broke an hour after they got home. I missed the gig of the year by 4 hours - I was in the mood to kill.

I was packing my stuff up, ready to drive home, when my best mate called - he managed to get tickets for us to see them tonight!!!!!

Geoff doesn't come here at all but I just wanted to say that although I don't have a wide circle of friends, the ones I have got are the best.

What a star!

Enjoy :) And I'm sure we all expect a full concert review after the event.


Yes, it's me. I'm back.

All's well that ends well:) I know how it feels to be disappointed about a missed show and I am very happy for you right now. Plus you got the free T-shirt on top of it:)

Bob, I think this goes to show how deservant you are of a great friend like Geoff. You are a pretty ok guy and pretty ok people usually attract the same.

;)

Have a wonderful time tonight!!!

Will you bring me back a Tshirt????

pweeeeeeeeeeeeease!!!

Awesome to hear it worked out for ya, Bob! As I'm writing this, they're probably about to walk onto the stage within the next half hour! You will be blown away... that's a guarantee.

Ah, his name was Geoff was it? He must think a lot of you Bob, as I made a tidy sum on those tickets.

They're genuine by the way. But if you get stopped on the door, they were bought in good faith and I don't give refunds.

Enjoy the show! Good to see Ian Rush still getting work, despite that nose of his.

Sir GH - you were not wrong, what a show!!!!! From the opening video sequences it was pure entertainment all the way - fan-fucking-tastic.

Lisser - 'pretty ok guy' is not high enough praise to earn a t shirt. Acceptable wording includes: handsome, adorable, wonderful, exceptional. I'll have to hang on the the 3 t shirts I got ;-)

I would highly reccomend this gig to anyone who has a chance to see it, even if I have a biased view. It's a hell of a show.

I'm surprised he's got time for all that now that he's managing Chester.

Just search for a website of any Rush bootleg trader, and soon you'll find a setlist from the tour. For all the shows I've seen, they all have had the same setlist.

If you can figure out Torrents, Bob, you can grab the show you missed out on.

Thanks for tracking that down Zeni. I will admit, I know absolutely nothing about Torrents and wouldn't have a clue where to start.

I am old - am I expected to learn this stuff?

I sometimes forget your age deficiencies, Bob. I'll grab it for you and send a copy if you'd like.
