Geddy Lee Joins Bob & Doug McKenzie to Perform Take Off! at Fundraiser Event
Last night, the Take Off, Eh! – Bob and Doug McKenzie Live Reunion fundraiser event for spinal research took place at the Toronto Mainstage Theatre in downtown Toronto, Ontario:
Join Canada’s greatest comic stars for a once in a lifetime evening of music, comedy and special guests. Join Dave Thomas, Rick Moranis, Martin Short and many more at The Second City’s iconic cabaret theatre for this one night only benefit raising funds for Spinal Cord Injury Ontario and Jake Thomas’ Road To Recovery.
Geddy Lee made a surprise visit towards the end of the evening, where he joined both Moranis & Thomas on stage where they sang their early '80s hit Take Off!. A Facebook video of the performance is available below, or directly at this LINK.


Fun fact: Take Off! peaked at #16 on the Billboard Hot 100 charts back in 1982. In contrast, the highest charting Rush single, New World Man, only reached the #22 spot.

Thanks to Ed from RushIsABand for passing along the news.
