Sebastian Bach covering Closer to the Heart on tour

As you may know, Guns and Roses (what's left of them) recently embarked on their first tour in over a decade. Opening for them is former Skid Row frontman Sebastian Bach. Sebastian Bach is a big Rush fan and has performed covers of the band's songs on various tribute albums. Apparently he's been covering Closer to the Heart on this most recent tour. There were also guest appearances from some notable friends of Alex Lifeson. Lynn Saxberg of the Ottawa Citizen had this to say in his review of last night's show at Ottawa's Scotiabank Place:

... There was also a jolt of recognition at [Bach's] Geddy Lee impersonation on Rush's Closer to the Heart, and a hearty laugh at the surprise guest appearance by Trailer Park Boys Julian and Bubbles (hey, was that Ricky or Axl lurking in the background?).

GNR's Friday-night rock marathon began shortly after 8 p.m. with a valiant performance by Die Mannequin, whose singer-guitarist played hard, but like she was just trying to get through the night. ...

The Die Mannequin singer referred to is none other than Care Failure, who sang on the Lifeson-produced cover of I Fought the Law for the Trailer Park Boys movie. And we should all be very familiar with Trailer Park Boys Bubbles, Julian and Ricky by now. :)
