Watch ALEX LIFESON Perform RUSH Classics With CHICAGO's JASON SCHEFF

On Sunday, October 28, RUSH guitarist Alex Lifeson took part in the 11th annual Scott Medlock-Robby Krieger Golf Classic's All-Star Concert to benefit St. Jude Children's Research Hospital at the Saddlerock Ranch in Malibu, California. Lifeson performed RUSH's "Freewill", "The Spirit Of Radio" and "Limelight" with the help of CHICAGO's Jason Scheff on bass and vocals. Check out video footage below (courtesy of California Rock News).

Longtime friends Scott Medlock and Robby Krieger (THE DOORS) organized the event to support St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, which is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. It has become one of the largest, single event fundraisers of the year for the hospital. Thanks to generous donors, families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food — because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.

RUSH bassist/vocalist Geddy Lee recently confirmed that the band is unlikely to play any more shows or make new music.

RUSH's chronic tendinitis-suffering drummer Neil Peart hinted during a 2015 interview with Drumhead magazine that he would no longer tour with the band, revealing his daughter had already started referring to dad as "a retired drummer."

Lifeson and Lee said that the band will never do a show unless all three musicians agree to take part.

On November 16, UMe/Anthem/ole label group will continue its extensive RUSH 40th-anniversary album series with a new, expanded edition of the band's groundbreaking 1978 release "Hemispheres".
