Tour Link is a three day conference where professionals in concert touring and related industries spend time networking with their peers. Part of the three day session includes the Top Dog awards ceremony where awards in numerous categories are bestowed upon the very best of the best in the touring community as voted on by their peers.
This year, long-time Rush engineer Brad Madix, who has been with the band since the Presto days and Video designer David Davidian, who has been with Rush since the Vapor Trails era, won three separate awards for their work during Rush's Clockwork Angels tour.
Brad Madix shared the award with Ken Pooch Van Druten (Linkin Park) in the category of "FRONT OF HOUSE ENGINEER OF THE YEAR."
David Davidian took home two awards, in the categories of "VIDEO DESIGNER OF THE YEAR" and "VIDEO DIRECTOR/OPERATOR OF THE YEAR"
Howard Ungerleider, who won the award in 2011, was on hand at the ceremony and accepted all three awards on behalf of Brad and David.
