Last month Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson were interviewed by Eddie Trunk for VH1 Classic's upcoming new program That Metal Show. Eddie recently posted the complete schedule for the 8-show inaugural season along with several behind-the-scenes pictures on his website. The show with Geddy and Alex will be the last show of the season and air on Saturday, December 27th. Eddie had posted an update to his blog last month talking about the appearance. Here's an excerpt:

... Yesterday's final two shows featured Ace Frehley and Alex and Geddy from Rush as in studio guests. What a way to wrap up Season 1! I can not thank Alex and Geddy enough. The guys flew to NYC in and out on the same day just to do my show only. It's an honor to be able to call the Rush guys friends over the last few years and I am so grateful. To have artists of this caliber willing to step up for me like this is unreal. We had some fun with the guys and talked about their new DVD. They both were entertaining and very funny and seemed to have a good time. Was also cool to see Ace and Rush interact backstage. Rush opened more shows for Kiss then any band in the 70's and the stories and old memories were flowing in the halls and around the makeup room. Was just great to watch these legends interact and catch up. ...

According to some secondhand reports of the taping, they were asked if they would be taking a break for a while and Geddy stated I think we will be doing one more tour. And he said it in a fashion as to not insinuate one more tour EVER, but rather one more tour before taking any extended break. So this seems to add credence to the rumor that the band will be touring next summer. Hopefully we'll be getting some more details on this front in the coming weeks. Thanks to TMMB for the heads up.
