Geddy Lee's Big Beautiful Book of Bass European signing tour dates announced

UPDATE - 5/31@8:55AM: Prog magazine briefly spoke with Geddy about the European book signing tour in this article (thanks RushFanForever):

I was a little bit unsure of the best way to go out there and promote this book and we had a lot of different ideas Ė taking the basses on tour and doing a big show, but it just didnít feel right to me. Yet, at the same time, I wanted to get out there and support independent bookstores and music stores and see if I could get out there and meet some fans. One thing lead to another and the experience, I think, for the fans and for myself, was so sweet and so gratifying, that I decided to just keep doing them every once in a while. ... We just go out there and get to meet some fans and itís really nice. They come out and get a couple of minutes with me, and we chit-chat. Itís a really nice vibe for me.
