UPDATE - 6/15@9:15AM: Here's some video of Alex doing a quick introduction before the band started playing.

UPDATE - 6/13@9:07PM: The Coppinwood Facebook page posted some photos and video from the event, which looks to have been a 10th anniversary bash of some sort. There's this photo of Alex and Tom Cochrane, along with this video snippet of The Spirit of Radio (thanks RushFanForever). Also of note, Canadian band The Carpet Frogs - featuring Jeff Jones on bass - also played at the event. Jones was briefly a member of Rush just before Geddy Lee joined the band, and later played with Cochrane in Red Rider.

UPDATE - 6/13@3:42PM: Tom Cochrane posted this photo of himself, Lifeson, the Trailer Park Boys and others to his Facebook page:

Last night Alex Lifeson performed at a private fundraising event that took place at Coppinwood Golf Club (Lifeson is a part owner). Rush fan Kurt Sunn posted a number of photos from the event to the Clockwork Angels Facebook group (closed group, membership required). Also in attendance were the Trailer Park Boys, Tom Cochrane, Gerry Finn (Killer Dwarfs) and others. They played the Rush songs Distant Early Warning, The Spirit of Radio, Limelight, Tom Sawyer and Closer to the Heart (with Bubbles from Trailer Park Boys). Alex then came out to play with Tom Cochrane on Life is a Highway and Lunatic Fringe (Alex played the solos on each song). Gerry Finn of the Canadian heavy metal band the Killer Dwarfs posted this photo of himself with Alex Lifeson at rehearsals to his Facebook page (thanks Mandi B).
