    The Unison Benevolent Fund ispleased to announce that Canadian music icons, Rush, have offered to support Unison's funding efforts by donating $1 from each ticket sold at 5 upcoming dates to the Unison Benevolent Fund.

    Over the course of their incredible career, Rush has released 25 gold records and 14 platinum records (3 of which have gone multiplatinum), placing them in the top 3 rock bands for the most consecutive certified rock album catalogue, with worldwide sales of 43 million units.

    The band's popularity has always been unwavering, and they are currently on their Clockwork Angels tour, having just finished a trek across Europe and returning to North America later this month.

    Long known for their support of various philanthropic causes, Rush have generously offered to support Unison by donating $1 from each ticket sold at 5 of their upcoming Canadian dates.

    Those dates are:

    July 6 Hamilton, Ontario - Copp's Coliseum

    July 12& 14 Halifax, Nova Scotia - Metro Centre

    July 24 Calgary, Alberta - Scotiabank Saddledome

    July 26 Vancouver, British Columbia - Pepsi Live at Rogers Arena

    The Unison Benevolent Fund is a non-profit charitable organization that provides counselling, emergency relief, and benefit programs for those in the Canadian music community who face personal or professional challenges due to hardship, illness, unemployment or economic difficulties.

    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.
