An Evening With RUSH

What do you get when you combine three guys from Canada, Guitars, Drums, and lasers?

A rockin' Evening with RUSH! Wow - this show rocked! Who knew so much rich sound could be produced from only three people? Above you'll see their front man, Geddy Lee.

RUSH is my husband's favorite band. (Mine is Duran Duran - a completely different genre!) However - I have become a RUSH fan by marriage. Their songs are thought provoking & their music is incredible.
If you look carefully, you'll see Alex Lifeson there on the left - stunning guitar work!

Fun lights add to the ambiance.

RUSH has been around for over 30 years (we went to their 30th anniversary tour back in 2004). We're trying to figure out how old Geddy Lee, Alex Lifeson, and Neil Peart are. If they've been around for over 30 years, they have to be in their 50's we reckon. My father is in his mid-to-late 60's and I have such a hard time imagining him rockin' out on the stage. Crazy.

Wade was in 7th heaven. Okay - he says he was in 8th heaven.

I saw the same show and was equally blown away. I posted a review on my Blog at http://isorski.blogspot.com/2007/07/concert-review-rush.html if you are interested!

Oh my! I am now a bit envyous :-) Rush is coming to Holland in October, but I can't go, alas...I'll stick to listening to their CD's though.
