UPDATE - 3/28@10:20AM: It looks like current Barenaked Ladies keyboardist Kevin Hearn will also be participating in the show according to this Instagram post where he's rehearsing with Alex and the Rheostatics. Hearn has a long history of collaboration with the Rheostatics and has performed live with them many times in the past (thanks John R).

Dave Bidini's West End Phoenix monthly community newspaper for Toronto's West End launched this past October and Rush's Alex Lifeson contributes a "storytelling comic" titled The Meaning of Lifeson to the publication, which is illustrated by artist Casey McGlynn. The newspaper will be holding a Phoenix Rising concert fundraiser on Thursday, March 29th at The Great Hall on Queen Street in Toronto, and Alex Lifeson will be one of the participants. The event will be hosted by Tom Wilson (Lee Harvey Osmond) and also participating will be the Rheostatics, Whitehorse, Nasim Asgari and Special Guests. For ticket information visit this link.
