UPDATE - 3/23@11:55AM: The CBC just posted a nearly hour-long video interview with Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson where they discuss their induction into the Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame with Laurie Brown.

UPDATE - 3/22@5:21PM: The ceremony will air on radio the day after the Gala on March 29th at 7PM on CBC Radio 2 as a special presentation of Canada Live and at 4PM on Espace Musique.

UPDATE - 3/22@4:07PM: I've confirmed with a representative of the Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame that all three members of Rush will be present at the Gala. They also told me that the show will be recorded but there are no details as of yet regarding any type of TV broadcast. However, they did confirm that it will be broadcast via radio on CBC Radio 2 and Espace Musique in Canada. More details as I learn them.

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 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. Tickets are now available for the Gala and can be purchased via ticketmaster at this link. There is a special offer for Rush fans; simply enter the pass code SONGS when requesting tickets and get a 20% discount.
