I can't wait for the Snakes and Arrows Tour, because I'm going to the first stop in Atlanta.
Because I'm only in high school, I've never been to a rush concert. I've been a rush fan since I can remember, but never been to their shows. On a average how many songs do they play at concerts. I know that they'll probably do some of their older stuff too, but can anyone ease my concerns.

Are they going to play more than Snakes and Arrows?

you can bet your IPod they will.

they're not-so-lean and not-so-mean as in the 70's, but they're still master showmen.

Go to school.....

Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Mad Mad Mad House!

And they play about 3 to 3 1/2 hours. You are in for a treat! I took my daughter to her first Rush show when she was 10 and the guys sitting behind us told her, "This is the best it gets - a Rush show - it's all downhill from here, kiddoe!" That about sums it up.

not only do I feel better, I pretty much shat my pants and creamed my jeans. Now I'm so pumped to go to this show, I have to beat up my mom to take my excitement out.

For the record, I'm only kidding about that whole mom thing.

Preist, if you want to feed the Hairball, it's stale mustard crackers he likes best. Just so you know.

39 more days until my first rush concert. Everyday I keep thinking about it more and more. Today while taking the SATs, Cinderella Man and Xanadu kept on playing in my head. I kept tapping the drum part on my desk with my pencil, and then I stopped when I caught myself doing so.

To keep myself pumped, I've been watching R30 and Rush in Rio almost everyday. When I'm not doing that, I'm playing Rush songs on my bass.

This concert's really taking a lot of time away from me, but who cares it's worth it!
