Merry Rushmas!

Rush rocks!Wow! This is by far the best Christmas present I've gotten in a long while. Today as I was scanning my in-box I found out that one of my all time favorite bands will be visiting Puerto Rico for the very first time. Rock legends Rush will kick-off a 40 date extension of their "Snakes & Arrows" tour with a concert, most probably at the Choliseo in April of 2008.

According to the press release, the band is responding to popular demand with the tour extension, which has been Rush’s highest grossing tour ever and the best attended in many years. No kidding, according to Billboard Boxscore, the tour has already grossed $29.7 million. The band will begin rehearsals in March to revamp the set list before kicking off the tour in San Juan.

It's been around 21 years since I last saw Rush in San Antonio and around 28 years since I first saw them on their Permanent Waves tour. During that period I saw them another three times. Hey we're talking about three of the best musicians ever to play rock! To witness Neil, Geddy and Alex in action once again, is amazing to consider. Merry Christmas, indeed!

Rush is my fave band ever. Their music is like a soundtrack to my life. Neil's books helped me deal with the loss of one of my twin sons. So yeah, I will be there!
He, I dound about two months ago from Facebook and AFAIAK it justified having a account just to find about this!
