    In addition to the two concerts, the 12th annual RushCon fan convention took place. The popular convention featured a weekend of Rush-related activities including a performances by the Rush Tribute band Lotus Land, guest speakers John Arrowsmith and Kevin J. Anderson, a tour of Anthem Records and more. A great article about the convention can be read at this HERE.

    And while the band was in town, several members of the Clockwork Angels String Ensemble appeared as guests on Kim Mitchell's radio show on Toronto's Q107. The ensemble spoke about touring with Rush and even performed for a few minutes. You can check out their performance via this YouTube Video.

    Finally, here are a couple of great photo galleries from both Toronto shows:

    1. Did anybody hear Geddy sing "The boy pulls down his Blue Jays cap and covers up his eyes" in The Analog Kid during Sunday night's show??

    2. Of the four times I saw Neil throw his stick into the air, one time went too far back and landed between his drum set and the orchestra. Another time it went just a little to far forward and landed in his set just out of his reach. The other two times were successful!
