RUSH Added To Toronto STONES Gig

Canadian rock legends RUSH have been confirmed for the ROLLING STONES concert in Toronto on July 30 at Downsview Park.

The announcement was made on the band's official website, where in a one-sentence blurb they confirmed they will be joining the ever-growing list of artists for the special gig to help Toronto's SARS-scarred economy.

The concert also features AC/DC, THE GUESS WHO, JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE, SAM ROBERTS, THE FLAMING LIPS, KATHLEEN EDWARDS, THE ISLEY BROTHERS, SASS JORDAN and LA CHICANE.

Tickets for the nine-hour show — which went on sale today (June 27) — are available through all Ticketmater outlets for $21.50 plus service charges. Starting July 4, tickets can also be purchased at A&P and Dominion stores in Ontario.

The bash will be hosted by Dan Aykroyd and Jim Belushi and organizers hope to draw 300,000 revellers, including 100,000 from outside Ontario.
