The dates for the 9th annual Scott Medlock-Robby Krieger Golf Invitational and All-Star Concert to benefit St. Jude Children's Research Hospital were announced earlier this week, along with the release of this promotional video. The event - hosted by sports artist Scott Medlock and legendary Doors guitarist Robby Krieger - will take place on Monday, August 29th at the North Ranch Country Club in Westlake Village, California. The tournament itself will start at 11AM with a 19th hole post-tournament cocktail party, and a 7PM All-Star Jam featuring Krieger, Richie Sambora, Alice Cooper, Alex Lifeson, and many other musical guests. All the events are open to the public, so if you want to play in the tournament, attend the 19th hole cocktail party or attend the All-Star Jam you have to register and buy tickets via the website here. Alex Lifeson took part in the event 2 years ago back in 2014, but had to skip it last year due to Rush's R40 Live tour. You can check out full coverage from the 2014 event including photos, videos and more in this post. At the 2014 event Alex performed a number of songs including Rush's Working Man (video) and The Spirit of Radio (video) with an all-star lineup including Krieger, Sebastian Bach, Tommy Thayer and many others. He also played on I'm a Man (video) and The Doors' Hello I Love You. More videos can be seen on YouTube here.
