Unison Fund Announce Rush are to Donate Portion of Sales from Canadian Tour Dates -
Rush have announced they'll be donating a portion of their ticket sales to struggling musicians in their homeland of Canada.
The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame inductees will donate $1.00 from each ticket sold for the Canadian leg of the upcoming Clockwork Angels tour in July.
The money will then go to the Unison Benevolent Fund, a non-profit charitable organisation that provides struggling music industry professionals who are struggling to makes ends meet.
"Whether it's a favourite song or an album by a treasured artist, music impacts our lives. Every recording and show requires an invisible network of professionals working collectively to create all the music that is important to you.
"The majority of this team are self-employed or freelance contractors. They usually live without the support of a safety net and when a crisis occurs its impact can be devastating.
"Thanks to Rush, Unison will change that."
