Rush Flood Relief T-Shirts Apparently Sold Out

flood shirtRush’s flood relief T-shirts to help benefit flood damaged Calgary are sold out, according to a note at the the Rush Backstage Club’s website.

UPDATE: But the merchandiser says it will have new stock by the end of the month and says you can pre-order the shirts for later delivery. “Due to high demand, this item is currently out of stock.  However, we will be getting more stock in this item on July 31st, 2013 and this shirt is available for pre-order.   If you pre-order this shirt and any other items, your entire order will ship on July 31st, 2013.” Price is $34.99. Sales proceeds go to flood relief.

Also, it appears the T-shirts are also available at the Long & McQuade music stores in Edmonton and Calgary, although it doesn’t look like you can order them online.

Rush made the T-shirts available to help relief efforts. Calgary was hit with severe flooding on June 21, forcing Rush to cancel its concert scheduled there tomorrow at the Scotiabank Saddledome.

Rush instead is playing at the Enmax Centrium in Red Deer tomorrow, which is about 140 kilometers from Calgary (about 90 miles). Rush is covering all its costs and donating all concert proceeds to the Red Cross for flood relief.

“Another restoring faith in humanity,” says TomTomGPS on the My Les Paul guitar forum. “Those guys were always humanitarians.”

I’m “immensely proud of this incredibly generous Canadian act ,” says KS 5150 on the same forum.

Thanks to RushIsABand for the head’s up on the Long & McQuade T-shirt sales.
