Nearly 2 years ago we learned that Rush would be awarded a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. The campaign to get Rush their star was spearheaded by long-time Rush friend Donna Halper - the woman who is credited with discovering Rush while working at WMMS-FM in Cleveland back in 1974 - and Rush fans extraordinaire Keith and Kevin Purdy. Since being awarded the Star we've been awaiting word on when the ceremony would take place and on Friday I'd mentioned hearing that it would occur on August 10th, the day before their concert in Los Angeles. Later that day I received word from Kevin Purdy letting me know that this date was not correct, and that the ceremony would instead occur on Friday, June 25th. Artisan News Service also mentions this date in a recent video news story on the Rush documentary. No details regarding the ceremony have yet been released.
