The 11th annual TJ Martell World Tour of Wine Dinner & Auction took place yesterday evening at the Capitale in New York City. The event honored Rush and Doug Shafer (President of Shafer Wines) for their charitable efforts, and Alex Lifeson was in attendance as seen in the above photos (thanks to Press Pass NY's John DeNobile for the photos). According to reports, one of the auction items donated by Rush was a pair of VIP tickets and a meet-n-greet to a future Rush concert. So this would seem to indicate that - despite the lack of any official announcement - the band does plan to tour at some point in the near future. Great news! Proceeds from the event and auction will go to benefit the TJ Martell Foundation efforts to support Leukemia, Cancer and AIDS research. For more information visit the TJ Martell Foundation website.
