Geddy Lee's long-awaited memoir My Effin' Life was officially released earlier this week and Monday night Geddy kicked off his spoken word In Conversation book tour at the Beacon Theatre in New York City. The tour continued Wednesday night at The Met Philadelphia in Philly, and tonight will be show #3 at The Theater at MGM National Harbor. If you want to attend but don't have your tickets yet, tickets are still available at this location. Geddy will be joined onstage by a surprise guest interviewer; the opening night interviewer was Paul Rudd, and showrunner/producer Brian Koppelman and WMMR DJ Pierre Robert shared the duties in Philly. All attendees will receive a copy of Ged's book, along with a 16 page color tour book upon entering the venue. Rush has set up an online form where attendees can submit questions for Geddy prior to the show at this link. For a complete rundown of what went down on opening night, and how the show is put together, check out this post, along with this post from the Philly show. After tonight's appearance, Geddy will then hit another 11 dates across the US and Canada throughout late November and early December (see links below for tickets). The North American leg ends on December 7th at Massey Hall in Toronto before crossing the pond for the UK tour in Wolverhampton on Sunday, December 10th. You can get all the details and learn how to get tickets at (North America, UK).
