The folks at RushCon have posted more details and registration information for this year's RushCon 15 Rush fan convention. The 15th annual convention will take place July 31st to August 2nd in Los Angeles - the first time it's ever been held outside of Rush's hometown of Toronto. There will also be a mini-con held in Toronto on June 19-20 to coincide with Rush's tour stops there. Earlier today they posted detailed event information along with all the registration information, and a call for street team volunteers, charity auction items, sponsors and submissions for tribute band of the month. The festivities for the main Los Angeles convention will include a Friday evening welcome party at the Club Nokia VIP Lounge, with Saturday's events taking place at the Belasco Theater and including Rush-themed games and prizes, guest speaker Kevin J. Anderson, a charity auction, and buses to and from Rush's Saturday, August 1st show at the LA Forum (tickets NOT included). On Sunday attendees will be treated to a Star Map of Hollywood bus tour of Hollywood, and a closing reception at the Grammy Museum. The Rush mini-con in Toronto will include a pre-concert party upstairs at the Hard Rock Cafe at Dundas Square before Rush's concert at the Air Canada Centre Friday night. The party will include games, vendors, a silent auction, drinks, snacks, and then a bus ride to and from the show. Saturday attendees will be taken on a bus tour of the Rush landmarks of Toronto, finished off with a closing party at Alex Lifeson's Orbit Room. There will also be a few bonus events for folks who get in town early. For all the details check out the RushCon website, and be sure to follow RushCon on Facebook and on Twitter for all the latest news and info. While on the subject of Rush fan gatherings, over the weekend the folks at Rush RatCon also posted details for their annual Rush gathering which you can check out in this post.
