It looks like regular tickets start from $140.50 CND, but with the special offer they are $100.50 CND.

UPDATE - 3/10@12:22PM: I added this video of the announcement of the inductees from back in January to the bottom of the post (thanks random_sample).

UPDATE - 3/10@10:25AM: The Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame website indicates that Alexisonfire will perform Tom Sawyer while the press release states (thanks RushFanForever) that they'll be performing Closer to the Heart.

A couple of months ago it was announced that Rush along with Quebec musician Robert Charlebois would be the 2010 songwriter inductees into the Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame. Rush will be recognized for their songs Limelight, Closer to the Heart, The Spirit of Radio, Tom Sawyer and Subdivisions. The 2010 inductees will be honored at the Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame 6th annual Gala on Sunday, March 28th at the George Weston Recital Hall, Toronto Centre for the Arts. The performers for the gala were announced this afternoon and will include Canadian hardcore rockers Alexisonfire performing Tom Sawyer; Primus frontman Les Claypool playing a version of The Spirit of Radio; and Canadian folk singer/songwriter Jacob Moon doing his rendition of Subdivisions. Thanks to Brad Hirsch of Used Bin Radio for the heads up.
