Yep, you heard that right: not only are Rush and k.d. lang coming to the Great White North this summer but Slash of Guns N' Roses fame will be here too.

Slash will be hitting a number of Canadian cities with his band The Conspirators and their Apocalyptic Love tour. Performances will be held in 10 cities including Vancouver, Quebec City, Edmonton, Calgary, Saskatoon, Winnipeg, Thunder Bay, Belleville, London, and Montreal. Tickets for most of the Canadian shows will go on sale this Friday through Ticketmaster.

Another major concert announcement comes from the Canadian band Rush, who have been around since the 1960s and are still drawing major crowds. Their most recent tour Clockwork Angels is in promotion of their 20th studio album (by the same name), and northern stops will include Winnipeg, Saskatoon, Edmonton, Toronto, and Montreal. Rush has won a number of awards and was inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame in 1994. Their last tour, the Time Machine Tour, wrapped up last July.

And finally, if that weren't enough, Canadian songstress k.d. lang will also be embarking on a new tour and has included several stops in her home country like Victoria, North Bay, Kingston, Ottawa, and Kitchener (as well as others). Tickets will go on sale this Friday through Ticketmaster outlets. Lang's infamous rendition of Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah" was sung live at the opening ceremony of the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver, Canada, and she, too, has amassed a number of awards, such as Junos and Grammys.
