Rush commemorated on Canadian stamp

Rush Rush have been commemorated on a new postage stamp made available by Canada Post.

The band’s Starman logo appears as part of the post office’s Canadian Recording Artists series. It’s accompanied by stamps featuring The Tragically Hip, the Guess Who and Beau Dommage.

Meanwhile, Geddy Lee and co have confirmed they’ll play a benefit show on Wednesday night in Alberta, to raise funds for victims of recent severe floods in the province.

Bassist and vocalist Lee recently said of their current touring activities: “It’s that Malcolm Gladwell thing – after all those hours, you arrive at that place where what you can think of, you can play, pretty well. Which is a beautiful thing.

“The last two tours for me, we kind of hit a new level of playing with each other onstage. Just our ability to get the job done and raise our game. So it’s like, let’s just go with that flow.”
