Geddy Lee Announces North American Book Tour

The Rush vocalist will visit three Canadian cities on the 'My Effin' Life' tour

Rush's Geddy Lee has announced a short North American tour in support of his upcoming memoir, My Effin' Life, due November 14 via Harper Collins. Each evening will find Lee joined on stage by a special guest interviewer, reading passages from the book and answering audience questions in a Q&A.

Lee said in a statement:

Writing this book has meant spending so much time living in the past. I've never lived my life looking anywhere but forward, which is why I resisted doing this kind of thing for so long. Being in a band all those years was reassuring because it was an ongoing thing. It felt like it was forever. There was always unfinished business: the next record, the next set design, the next tour. It's been the theme of my life. But you need a lot more determination to proceed in the world of music without the comfort of your bandmates, and I can only hope that finishing this book will release me to return to what I do and love best.

The trek begins in New York City the day before the book's release (November 13) and will take the bandleader to Philadelphia, Boston, Seattle and several more US cities along the way. Canadian dates come in Montreal, Vancouver and Toronto, the latter closing the run at Massey Hall on December 7.

Tickets go on sale to the general public on Friday, October 6, at 10 a.m. local time. See the schedule below.
