UPDATE - 11/10@11:46AM: Here is some more audio/video from the Q&A (thanks sooboy). This one was taken from the center so the video/lighting is a bit better, but the audio is still difficult to make out:

UPDATE - 11/9@9:34AM: Mark R has uploaded the entire Q&A as recorded from his iPhone in 3 parts. The video is dark and some of the audio is hard to make out, but it's all there. Geddy discusses touring in 2011 towards the end of part 2 at around the 9:15 mark.

UPDATE - 11/8@6:43PM: Mark R also recorded the Q&A and managed to transcribe a small portion for us:

... Thatís why we havenít fully decided on the tour, we are just going back and forth on how much recording we can get done - and still do some new shows because the way we are feeling right now is that we are so pleased with how the Time Machine Tour turned out and the way weíre playing this tour and were quite proud of that show and so we would like to bring that show to all the cities that we have not played yet ...

UPDATE - 11/8@6:25PM: Reader Mark R attended the screening today along with the Q&A afterward and gave me the highlights along with the photo. Geddy, Scot and Sam spent about 35 minutes answering questions following the film. When asked about whether the band will be touring the UK next year Geddy said that they are in negotiations to tour Europe in the Spring and may even hit a festival. He mentioned that it would likely be a continuation of the Time Machine Tour since the band has enjoyed the set so much and want to take it to places they missed the first time around. He was then asked how that fit in with their schedule regarding recording the new album Clockwork Angels and Geddy said that the band is enjoying alternating between recording and playing live shows and will probably continue with this pattern. So far all of this jibes with various rumors I've been hearing and have been touching on in some recent Friday updates.

UPDATE - 11/8@1:02PM: According to Analog Rockin' Hard at TNMS the Planet Rock interview with Geddy Lee was conducted by Planet Rock DJ Darren Redick earlier today but won't be broadcast until Thursday night on Nicky Horne's show. He also posted a couple pics of Geddy with Darren Redick from the interview.

Geddy Lee will be making an appearance at a UK screening of the Rush documentary Rush: Beyond the Lighted Stage at the Cineworld Haymarket in London today at 6PM (1PM EST). Geddy along with filmmakers Scott Mcfadyen and Sam Dunn will be conducting a Q&A after the film. According to zoony at TNMS.com Geddy will also be appearing on UK digital radio station Planet Rock today sometime between 2-6PM (9AM-1PM EST). Geddy is in town to accept the Living Legend award for Rush at the Classic Rock Awards this coming Wednesday, November 10th. The Rush documentary has also been nominated for for DVD/Film of the Year. The Classic Rock Awards will take place at The Roundhouse in London and be hosted by Alice Cooper. Previous recipients of the Living Legend award include Iggy Pop, Ozzy Osbourne, Jimmy Page, Alice Cooper and Lemmy.
