The 14th annual Andy Kim Christmas in support of CAMH Gifts Of Light took place last night at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre on the Exhibition Grounds in Toronto, and Alex Lifeson was one of the many artists to participate. Alex sat in with Kim on performances of his hit songs Rock Me Gently and Sugar Sugar, and also played a couple of songs with Max Webster's Kim Mitchell including Lager & Ale and their 1980 Rush collaboration Battle Scar as seen in this video (thanks RushFanForever). The event was hosted by Russell Peters and also included performances from Broken Social Scene, Billy Talent, Ron Sexsmith, Tom Cochrane, Hayden, Kim Mitchell, Mary Margaret O'Hara, Bif Naked, Theo Tams and Peter and Leah of July Talk. Alex has also performed at the event in the past, but his last appearance was way back in 2010 for the 6th annual show.
