The numbers are in. Rush’s July 24th show raised $575,000 for victims of the recent floods in Canada.

Originally scheduled for the Saddledome in Calgary, the concert was moved to the Enmax Centrium in nearby Red Deer, Alberta after flooding in the Canadian city damaged the arena.

Not only did Rush go on with the show, they donated all the proceeds to various relief organizations. The citizens of High River, who were hardest hit by the floods, will receive $125,000, while $400,000 will go to the Canadian Red Cross to support Alberta Flood Relief. The other $50,000 will go to local charities.

In a statement, Geddy Lee said, “It is important to be a good neighbor in situations like these, and we are very grateful that we were able to amass such a huge sum that will undoubtedly help many of our fellow Canadians in need.”

Rush wraps their current tour with shows Friday in Denver and Sunday in Kansas City, Missouri.
