Front Row for Rush, Columbus, OH, Sunday 9/2, 1 free ticket available

Hey guys, I won a contest on the Rush website, and I’ve got two front row seats to see Rush, Sunday 9/2 in Columbus, Ohio at the Germain Ampitheater. Who’dve realized they are already naming things in Columbus after Joe Germaine?

I want the ticket to go to a big fan, and I don’t know anyone up for making the drive on short notice from where most of my friends live in PA.

So let me know if you want the ticket, it’s free. For now I’d like to keep it to huge fans of the band, but if there aren’t ...
