For my first time in the photographers' pit at a concert, it's Rush, probably my all-time favourite band.

Rush hasn't been to Halifax since 1987, so the fans were so rabid, the band added a second show. Here are some of my best shots from the first night at the Halifax Metro Centre.

Very exciting! I had a great time shooting these pictures and learned a few things along the way.

Big thanks to the promoters for the photo pass and to the other photographers for being so welcoming and generous with their advice! I hope to do it again. They say I should come back for KISS on August 1, but my sister's in town, so that's probably a no-go. One day, though, I'll be in the pit again!

  1. Awesome pics! Did all the steam punk doohickeys work? Did being there help bring the new material to life for you? looks like a blast...
