Pacific Northwest Ski blog (and a few other places!)

Lots or reports from skiing around the Pacific Northwest, with some East Coast excursions thrown in for good measure

Rush at White River, Seattle

In the mid-70’s, Rush were playing at the Apollo Theatre in Manchester. I was a fan and had a ticket. Unfortunately, illness struck me down and I had to sell my ticket to a school mate. I was not happy.

When I went to Sheffield after school, my mate Steve Duke was a big Rush fan, and he kept me in touch with their music. But for the last two decades, they dropped off my musical radar and I really hadn’t followed them much. Steve Duke did however introduce me in Sydney in the late 90s to Stuart, who is a Rush tragic. And that’s the short version of how Jan and myself went to White River Amphitheater with Stuart and Jale to see Rush.

An atypical Seattle summer rain storm made getting to Auburn a bit of an ordeal, but once there, the shuttle bus worked well and we were at the venue in plenty of time to get some food and beer. Unfortunately the basic food selections bordered on the inedible – sogginess being the defining style of everything we ordered. The beer was no better – $11 for a 750ml hefeweizen is a rip-off by any standard. Jan bravely sampled the wine, but quickly discovered it was a wine for laying down and avoiding. Which she did.

The show was rather good though. I only knew maybe 8 songs from a set of 2.5 hours, but the performance captured my interest throughout. These guys obviously enjoying playing together, and are very impressive musicians to watch. They played a good chunk of the new album, and the material came over very strong. And the light and video show was impressive throughout.

I must admit I enjoyed this performance much more than I had expected. I might even find myself buying a new Rush album for the first time in three decades.
