Hey, I accidentally "found" Xanny and myself at the Garden concert yesterday! :shock: Well, sort of. Actually, it's the back of our heads. :roll:

I was Googling to see if I could get a DVD boot of the MSG concert and came across Between the Wheels at the Garden. It's filmed near Geddy on his side and you can see the heads in the front row pretty clearly. I'm the "sort of" strawberry blond/red head in front of Geddy's keyboards bouncing around while I'm singing and grabbing the rail, Xanny with ?darker? reddish hair doing a quieter version (we took turns being nuts) of the same next to me on my right.

I remember during this song at one point Geddy was singing down "to" me (Xan had the same experience many times too) and I smiled and sang up ?to? him (trying to look cool, RIGHT!). He smiled back but then I "lost it" (of course) and I mean the words. :oops: I went blank and totally messed up. I thought I would die right then and there. :oops: :shock:

What a memory! What a show! :-D

Geddy can sing ANY way he wants to to me and I'd still bum-rush him if I could. :lol:

I'm trying to get the entire show.
Waiting for a trade response.

Kares if I ever learn to burn the DVD's on my 'puter,
(I can rip movies but can't burn them yet) I'll give you each a copy if you're interested.

Course then there will be a lot of bum-rushing the TV I guess.
:-D

That's so fun, Kares. I wish I could have been at that show with you and Xan. Looks like you were having a GREAT time! :-)

No doubt! Oh that would be so COOL, MK!!! :shock: 8) Let me know if I can send something in return. I would LOVE to bum-rush my TV! :-D

I'll send you Yankees tickets! Not so you can go to the game but so you can burn them in Effigy. :razz: :twisted:

Elf and t, I was too busy looking elsewhere than the camera but thanks. :oops: ;) I can post a picture of what my face looked like, tho. :shock: :-D

Hairy, you were THERE!!! I keep telling you!!! 8)

Oh and BTW, my original comment read as "funny" to me. I don't think Geddy was really singing "to" me as if I was a private audience. :roll: And I didn't mean that. I just meant that in the excited confusion of that night it "felt" like that because to see him looking directly at me (or us) with those kind eyes, smiling and singing...it "felt" like that and that was enough for me to get tongue-tied and lose the words. :oops: :razz:

Don't worry, I think we all understood what you meant.

But, anyway, if he is looking at you and singing, he IS singing to you! lol

I wonder how long or if we will ever see the footage Geddy took at the shows over the tour. I thought it was great to see his tech come out with the digital video camera for Ged to shoot at alla us.

actually Kares6, I was talking to Ged the other night on the phone, and he mentioned you. He was in fact singing to you, Xan too. He said he had trouble remembering the words too because he was stunned by your beauty.. :-)


wow, you guys were close. I am a bit envious.. :-D
Happy 2015!
