Geddy Lee Announces Book Tour Supporting New Memoir to Kick off in New York City
Rush singer/bassist Geddy Lee will kick off a book tour supporting his forthcoming memoir, “My Effin’ Lane,” in New York City at The Beacon Theatre in New York on Nov. 13.
The My Effin’ Life In Conversation tour will support the book, due for release on November 14th on Harper Collins. The musician will continue the tour in Philadelphia at The Met on Nov. 15.
Lee will give fans an inside look into his family and childhood with a dive into the history of Rush; from the determined pursuit of music, to the personal memories with his life-long friends and band-mates, Alex Lifeson and Neil Peart, according to a release.
Joined on stage by a yet to be announced special guest interviewer, Lee will read key passages from the book; he will then share thoughts and stories taken from his experience. Furthermore, fans will then have the chance to participate in a special Q&A, with Geddy Lee answering their questions directly.
“Writing this book has meant spending so much time living in the past”. Lee continues: “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”.
