    wow a real in depth interview....do these people know who Rush are?


  • Registered Users Posts: 166 ✭✭MollyZ


    Can anyone confirm the start time for this gig? It's 8 on the tickets, posters etc but they've just said 7.30 on Radio Nova. Are they going to start early so they can get it finished for 11.00? Pretty bad form if they are and haven't told anyone!

    MCD say Rush will be on stage at 8pm sharp.

    I'm guessing this will be a three hour show with a half-hour interval, to finish at half 11. Is that accurate?

    That's exactly what I thought, I was just a bit concerned when Radio Nova said 7.30 as all my plans are based on it starting at 8. I would be absolutely gutted if I missed any of it. But I guess MCD would know more than Radio Nova so I'm probably getting into a tizzy over nothing. :)

    Rush On Stage: 8.00pm sharp.
    A 3 1/2 hour show. No Support (30 min intermission)

    Taken from the 02 site info on Rush gig.
    So I would go with that and ignore everything else

    Show finished @ 10.45pm when I seen them last July. Intermission wasn't quite a full half hour. And there will be no Axl Rose type nonsense so expect the show to start @ 8!

    Still can't quite believe Rush are playing in Ireland...

    Geddy will be interviewed on Matt Cooper this evening, does anyone know if its live or a prerecord? Any sightings around town? where are they staying?

    Mines came yesterday, so you should def. get tommorrow.:D

    They are fine t-shirts I might add!

    Don't forget Geddy on the last word with Matt at 6.30 this evening, should be interesting as Matt is a big fan.

    Might be a better interview than Radio Nova's yesterday seeing as though Matt Cooper is an actual fan.

    Although I think he'll be hard pressed to beat Steve Colbert's questions :

    Opening question ...
    "You've been touring for over 30yrs - do you ever get tired of being so awesome and kicking so much ass ?"

    When asking Rush about their influences ....
    "Your known for long songs, have you ever written a song that was so epic that by the end of the song you were actually influencing yourselves ?":cool::D
