From First to Last… Join us at RushCon 16, the convention for Rush fans! We will celebrate the decades-long history of Rush and their music in the crisp fall air of Toronto in November. From first to last, RushCon is the best three-day Rush party, with all of the fun and friendship that is our hallmark. There is no better time to be part of RushCon, as this year will most likely be the last convention for a while. This is the year to attend; don’t miss it!
THURSDAY NOVEMBER 3:
Evening: Moving Pictures
FRIDAY November 4:
Please join us for the Making Memories Mixer at the Monarch Pub in the Eaton Chelsea Hotel. Come spend the evening with a drink and a friend, trivia and door prizes.
As we come together for what might be our last RushCon, we can reflect upon 16 years of friendships that have become families and making new friends. When Rush fans get together fun will follow! So please join us, have fun and join the Rush family reunion!
Saturday November 4:
Anthem / SRO Offices and Lee Lifeson Art Park Tour
Saturday day events include our signature tour of Anthem’s offices and a visit to the brand-new Lee Lifeson Art Park in Willowdale. We’ll head over to Rush’s record company offices (1.2 km) for a walk through the memorabilia-laden lobby and outer offices. Bring your camera because you’ll want to share your memories with friends and family. Special thanks to the Anthem/SRO family for allowing us to visit “the home of Rush” for so many years! After the Anthem tour, we’ll travel north to Willowdale (14 km). As Rush fans know, this neighborhood is the old stomping ground of Geddy and Alex and the locale of the new Lee Lifeson Art Park! Geddy and Alex received the Key to the City at the opening of this urban art park in September 2016.
Lotus Land Tribute Show at the Hard Rock Cafe
RushCon is very proud to announce the return of Lotus Land, The American RUSH Tribute. An authentic 3 piece tribute, Lotus Land has been heralded as the ultimate celebration of RUSH’s musical craftsmanship and spirited performances. Enjoyed by die-hard Rush fans, musicians, and casual music listeners alike, Lotus Land delivers what Rush fans expect. With the true set up and sound of the Canadian power trio, they were chosen to perform live on AXS TV’s “World’s Greatest Tribute Bands” earlier this year. We welcome Lotus Land back to RushCon on Saturday 5th November 2016 at the Hard Rock Cafe in Toronto. We’re thrilled they will rock our audience once more!
Don’t miss out on seeing this command performance; tickets to the show will be included in the price of the 3-day convention pass, Saturday Only pass, or you can buy tickets to the tribute show at the door.
All events subject to change.
