Iconic Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall Of Famer Geddy Lee will host a series of In Conversation intimate events across the UK this December. During this spoken word tour, the acclaimed Rush singer/bassist will vividly share insights from his upcoming memoir, My Effin’ Life, which is set to be released on November 14th by HarperCollins.
“Writing this book has meant spending so much time living in the past,” Geddy told us. “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.”
Lee will be reading key passages from his book My Effin’ Life and will share thoughts and stories taken from his life. Fans also have the chance to participate in a special Q&A with Geddy Lee.
The tour will kick off in Wolverhampton and will end in London, with North American dates to be announced.
Each UK ticket purchased will include a copy of the book via the tour partner Waterstones. Full dates are below, and tickets will be available from the Rush website here.
