    Rush extends Snakes and Arrows Tour into 2008

    I know this will make PirateMunkee (and some others VERY happy).

    As long as they come to SoCal/Vegas I'll be happy (and there).

    Although, a trip to Orlando for some WDW and Rush wouldn't be so bad either.

    After a hugely successful 2007 run, Rush are pleased to announce they will extend their Snakes & Arrows World Tour into 2008. The band will begin rehearsals in March to revamp the set list before kicking off the tour with their first ever appearance in San Juan, Puerto Rico in April.

    2008 will see Rush tour in over 40 cities throughout the United States and Canada making stops in many where they havenít performed in well over a decade including: Orlando, Oklahoma City, New Orleans, Austin, Jacksonville and Winnipeg to name a few. Along the way, Rush will play new venues in Chicago, Detroit, Philadelphia and Seattle and will revisit some familiar ones in Boston, Washington and Charlotte amongst others. Rush fans can look forward to a complete tour announcement in mid January. As details develop more information will be made available at www.rush.com and www.livenation.com.

    Re: Rush extends Snakes and Arrows Tour into 2008

    LA/Irvine dates aren't annouced yet, but I'm assuming somewhere between May 4th and May 10th since they are in Concord on the 4th and Vegas on the 10th. I'm quite tempted to get tickets for the Vegas show, but they are on Sale Saturday, and I'll be kinda busy.

    Thanks ALIASd.

    For some reason it seems the tickets already went on sale for the Nokia show. But I never saw it and I get alerts. Brokers are already selling the tickets, and the least expensive is $300.

    I didn't really want to see them at Irvine again.

    Sorry , it was probably an Amex cardholders pre-sale or similar program. Verizon is always at least an option, if not the most desirable.

    Yeah, I should have gotten that alert too.

    The Vegas pre-sale went on sale today ... least expensive ticket ... $130.

    Sigh ...

    For those of you interested, the LA show wasn't on sale before. The pre-sale is in 18 minutes.

    I'll be getting tickets for me and Brian this morning. Were going to have a man-date.

    Cool, so glad you still had a shot at it. They should be great as always.

    and

    P.S. whenever I take a guy to concert downtown we have dinner at the Pacific Dining Car on 6th Street they have a free shuttle for patrons, the best-kept secret Happy Hour around and their baseball steak is a true deal-closer...

    Three-time MVP Larry Bird, noting that Bryant has been the NBA's premier player for years, told Sports Illustrated's Dan Patrick before this week's announcement, "When someone told me the other day that Kobe hadn't won an MVP trophy, it sort of made me feel like I wanted to throw mine away."

    Got my tickets a few weeks back. Got nice loge seats dead center.

    I'm also going with Lil' Clinks to Irvine on that Sunday or on the newly added 2nd Nokia show on Thursday.
