Geddy Lee's long-awaited memoir My Effin' Life was officially released last week and last Monday night Geddy kicked off his spoken word In Conversation book tour at the Beacon Theatre in New York City with guest speaker Paul Rudd. The tour then continued Wednesday night at The Met Philadelphia in Philly with guest interviewer duties shared by showrunner/producer Brian Koppelman and WMMR DJ Pierre Robert, then on to National Harbor, MD with Canadian actor Eric McCormack. Show #4 took place Saturday night at the Orpheum Theatre in Boston, with Eric McCormack sharing interviewer duties with Boston journalist Geoff Edgers. The tour then wrapped up its first US leg in Cleveland, OH at the State Theatre in Playhouse Square, where the guest interviewers were music journalist Rob Tannenbaum and Donna Halper. Tonight Geddy heads back north to hit up a couple of Canadian dates while US fans are busy celebrating Thanksgiving. He'll be at the Théâtre Maisonneuve in Montreal, QC tonight and then Vancouver on Thursday. 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 the format and highlights from the first 5 shows, view the links below for RIAB's coverage of each night. After tonight's appearance, Geddy will head west to Vancouver, then onto a few shows on the US West Coast before heading back east to Denver, Chicago and Detroit, and wrapping up the North American leg on December 7th at Massey Hall in Toronto. He'll then cross 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).
