According to a Rush Instagram post and a post from the band Arkellsmusic, Alex played with the Arkells Saturday night at Massey Hall.  The occasion was the Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony honoring Neil Young, Bruce Cockburn, Beau Dommage and Stéphane Venne.  (Don't know who the last 2 are!  Oops!). Below is a pic of Alex with the Arkells.  

On the Rush IG site there is also a very short clip of Alex, during the Neil Young part, playing Cinnamon Girl with the Arkells; it kills!  I've been trying to figure out how to put it up here but I can't figure out how to get the Instagram embed code into the BB code thing.  Maybe Maverick or someone can figure it out.

I'm inclined to say that with Geddy and Alex making appearances on stage in the past few months, maybe a return to Rush as a whole?

I'm inclined to say the opposite: separate appearances mean they're doing their own thing and enjoying it. Good for them.

I still think Geddy & Alex together will happen at some point...but not all 3 together.

Dark colored clothing and sucking in one's gut does wonders. I know from practice. :P

It's too bad Alex's solo was as high in the mix as the pedal steel was.
