RISE AGAINST ANNOUNCE FALL NORTH AMERICAN TOUR
BAND RETURNS TO ARIZONA FOR FIRST TIME IN OVER TWO YEARS
Rise Against has announced a fall tour of North America which will include performances in the state of Arizona, a place they have not been to since their July 14, 2009 performance at the Mesa Amphitheatre. Nearly two years ago Rise Against joined The Sound Strike, a coalition of Artists that have been committed to supporting the International Boycott of Arizona in the wake of the passage of the anti-immigration law SB 1070 and to raise awareness and opposition to the predatory and punitive treatment of immigrants in Arizona. Now that the ban has been lifted Rise Against will return to Arizona with performances in Flagstaff and Tempe during their North American fall tour (see below for all fall tour dates).
The Flagstaff show on September 27th at the Orpheum Theatre is a special evening to raise funds and awareness for the Florence Immigrant and Refugee Rights Project. 100% of the proceeds from this show will be donated to the Florence Project. For more information visit www.firrp.org
Rise Against released the Satellite digital EP in mid-April. Satellite is available exclusively at iTunes and includes the studio version of “Satellite” along with the video for the band’s third single off their sixth studio album Endgame. Additionally, live versions of “Savior” and “A Thousand Good Intentions” both recorded at the House of Blues in Boston are included on the EP.

Victoria, November 30, 2010 - Cirque du Soleil is pleased to announce that its newest arena show, Dralion (pronounced “Drah-lee-on”), will be performing in Victoria from June 22 - 26, 2011 at Save-on-Foods Memorial Centre for eight performances only.

Thrilling more than 8 million people worldwide since the show premiered in 1999, Dralion is the fusion of ancient Chinese circus traditions and the avant-garde style of Cirque du Soleil. In Fall 2010, Dralion will embark on a new journey, performing the same captivating production, but now in arenas throughout North America, giving more people the opportunity to enjoy a Cirque du Soleil show in their own town.
The name Dralion (pronounced “Drah-lee-on”) is drawn from its two main symbols: the dragon, representing the East, and the lion, representing the West.
