Complete Alex Lifeson Renman Live web show interview now available online

Fri, Apr 24, 2015@4:09PM | comments

This past Wednesday evening Alex Lifeson was the guest on Steve Rennie's Renman Live web show. The interview lasted a little over an hour and was streamed live on YouTube. Alex touched on several subjects, answering many questions from fans (via phone and the chatroom) and from Rennie himself. He was fairly tight-lipped on the subject of the upcoming tour, but did reiterate that the band will be taking an old school approach, and that they dug deep for material. He mentioned that they'll be playing a good number of older songs that they haven't played in a while that will include a comprehensive cross-section of material spanning their 40-year career. He also mentioned that since they covered a lot of the '80s material on the last tour, they won't focus on that as much for R40. He didn't mention any specific songs or any other details though. He also confirmed that the band plans on filming a couple shows, as we expected, although he didn't mention which ones. The entire interview was made available on YouTube earlier this afternoon (thanks Thomas P), and you can watch it below or on YouTube at this location:
