Rush's Geddy Lee Announces U.K. Spoken Word Tour

Rush singer/bassist Geddy Lee has announced a U.K. Tour in support of his upcoming memoir, “My Effin’ Life.”

“Geddy Lee In Conversation,” a series of intimate dates across the U.K., will begin in Wolverhampton on December 10.

On every evening of the tour, after the curtain rises, Lee will give his fans a peek into the very fabric of his life: from a deep reflection into his family and childhood, to a steep dive into the history of Rush; from the determined pursuit of music, to the personal memories of his life-long friends and bandmates Alex Lifeson and Neil Peart.

Joined on stage by a special guest interviewer, Lee will read key passages from “My Effin’ Life.” He will then share thoughts and stories taken from his experience. Fans will have the chance to participate in a special Q&A, with Lee answering their questions.

“Writing this book has meant spending so much time living in the past,” said Lee. “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.”

He continued, “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.”

Harper Collins will publish “My Effin’ Life” on November 14.

Each U.K. ticket purchased will include a copy of the book via the tour partner Waterstones.
