Geddy Lee Comments on the Festival d’ete de Quebec show

Rush have posted the following statement regarding last night's Festival d’ete de Quebec show, which was cut short due to weather:
“My bandmates and I are extremely disappointed and apologetic over the sudden and unexpected ending of our show last night at the Festival D’ete de Quebec. The lightning storm that was approaching made it extremely dangerous for all the technicians working the sound and lights and there was a high risk to the audience members as well as the musicians on stage. We were enjoying the show tremendously at the time and we were hoping we could get the whole show finished before the storm returned but unfortunately we were unlucky and were forced to end the show for the safety of all concerned. Thanks to all of our amazing fans for braving the weather and once again our sincere apologies for what had transpired. Hope to see you all again soon!!!” — Geddy Lee

  1. My girlfriend and I were there yesterday night. Thanks guys, the show was soooo great! Even tough it has been cut short by the elements, it was well worth the 350+ km we made.The sound was awsome, the band magestic! And BTW, thanks for caring about your public, your crew and yourself! Not much bands would have done so. Hoping to see you soon!
