Geddy Lee wrapped up his 10-city Big Beautiful Book of Bass Canadian signing tour yesterday at the Théâtre Rialto in Montreal. The Montreal signing event also included an interview and Q&A session conducted by Daniel Richler which is available to watch online below or on YouTube (thanks The Metal Voice). Geddy's Canadian signing tour kicked off on May 23rd in Victoria, and worked its way east across Canada over the past 2 weeks. CTV News was on hand for the tour kick off in Victoria and posted a short video news segment including some footage of fans and a short interview with Geddy which you can watch at this location. The Times-Colonist also published an article covering the event where they spoke with some of the fans who were in attendance. Ged then moved on to Vancouver and Calgary, where he opened up his Big Beautiful Bass Exhibition at Studio Bell with an interview and Q&A session conducted by writer and broadcaster Daniel Richler. You can watch a video of Geddy showing off the exhibit below or at this location. Geddy also spoke to Rob Brown on CBC Radio's The Homestretch for an interview previewing the Calgary event. From Calgary, he moved on to Edmonton and Winnipeg, where he took some time out to speak with CTV's Renee Rodgers about the book. Last week Geddy moved on to several signing events in Ontario, including a stop at the Ottawa International Writers Festival where he was interviewed by Allan Neal. That interview is available for listening as a podcast on the CBC's Ottawa All in a Day radio show website, and portions of the interview are included in this print article. This past weekend Ged did a signing at CosmoFest in Richmond Hill where he showed up with Dave Grohl, who actually drove him to the event as seen on Twitter and described in this blog post.

Geddy will now make his way across the pond for a 5-city European signing tour beginning this Saturday in London. He'll then make his way to Manchester and Glasgow in the UK, along with an event in Amsterdam and another in Hamburg, including a Q&A session hosted by Philip Wilding at the Manchester event.
