Rush Guitar Center RockWalk induction set for November 20th
As we'd first learned back in August, Rush will be inducted into Guitar Center's RockWalk in a ceremony to take place on November 20th in Los Angeles. Guitar Center posted a press release earlier today with more details regarding the ceremony along with some comments from Geddy Lee:
... The exclusive, invite only induction ceremony is set to take place on Tuesday, Nov. 20, at Noon at Guitar Center's Hollywood location on Sunset Boulevard. A special guest speaker will open the event by reflecting upon Rush's musical impact and welcoming the band to the stage.
"We are very pleased to have been chosen by our peers and fellow musicians for induction in Guitar Center's Rock Walk," said Rush's Geddy Lee. "It is an honor to have our names added to this illustrious list of great and highly talented musicians."
"Not only is Rush extraordinary as a band, but each member is incredibly talented in their own right," said Dave Weiderman, Chairman of Guitar Center's RockWalk. "With nearly thirty years together, this group has consistently delivered skilled musicianship, experimental-drive and stylistically diverse rock to music fans worldwide. In short - Rush is long-deserving of being honored by Guitar Center's RockWalk." ...
Rush will be in Los Angeles to play the Gibson Amphitheater on November 19th and remain in town for the ceremony the next day.
