Everyone Scored at the Rush Time Machine Tour
8/16/10I had purchased tickets to see Rush play at Red Rocks a few years back and I had to sell them last minute due to a unexpected family vacation. That show at Red Rocks would have been my first time enjoying the Canadian trio live.
It was completely overcast and drizzling all day and I figured it would rain at some point during the evening.
Brad and I arrived about two hours before the concert started, prepared to do a little tail gat’n.
Set up like a street corner show a few vehicles down from us was a bare bones Rush cover band. These thoughtful musicians were pumping out Rush tunes and entertaining folks as they walked by.
Here they are jamm’n out Tom Sawyer. Brad and I both agreed the dudes should have had a tip hat out.
While these dudes were spitt’n out the Rush tunes the clouds broke and a rainbow formed. It was at that point I knew everything was gonna be just fine 🙂
Here’s another video of the parking lot trio..At least they can say they Rocked the Rocks at Red Rocks right?
What do you do when your the only guy in a suit at a Rush show and you’re too embarassed to stand in line at the Port-O-Pottie?
I call this set of pictures:
“Bald Guy In a Suit at Rush Concert Look’n For A Place To Pee”
Here’s the first couple of pictures I took once we reached our seats.
The characters in the video are the guys from Rush, keep watching as it gets better as it gets going.
All was great until the big screen flickered off and stayed off. You can see it at the end of the video.
At first we thought it was part of the show, but after several minutes the crowd began to get restless and Rush creeped out on stage and began the show without the big screen.
No worries it came back on after the second song.
Here for you is a mixture of pictures and video.
The launching of the “Official Rush Beach Ball” (I always wanted to do this).
“Closer to the Heart”
I’ve had these Rush tickets for months, but in reality I’ve waited my whole life to see this trio.
Funny how my three favorite bands are all three piece bands.
2. ZZ Top
3. Kings X.
Mock me if you will, but I likes what I likes. I’ve seen ZZ Top and Rush now at Red Rocks but as much as I dig King’s X, they probably couldn’t fill Red Rocks anymore…Who knows?
Anyways, props to Brad for catching this show with me and thanks to you for tagg’n along. Better go wash your shirt now because after an evening at Red Rocks your ears hurt and you’re smell’n like “OttoMan”.
