RUSH To Play Benefit Concert For Alberta Flood Relief

Due to recent flooding and water damage at the Scotiabank Saddledome, the RUSH concert originally scheduled for Wednesday, July 24 had to be canceled. RUSH has been moved by the situation in Alberta, Canada and has decided to perform its "Clockwork Angels" show at the closest location possible on the same date — Wednesday, July 24 in Red Deer, Alberta at the Enmax Centrium — and has all proceeds to go to Alberta Flood Relief. RUSH will donate its fee and pay for all its expenses. Their promoter partner, Live Nation, will also donate its time and fees towards this cause. The venue, Enmax Centrium, will donate goods and services to the event as well. It's an all-hands-on-deck situation to donate time in order to raise as much money possible for our Alberta friends and fellow Canadians in need.
