Geddy Lee's best-selling memoir My Effin' Life was officially released last month and back on November 13th Geddy kicked off his spoken word In Conversation book tour at the Beacon Theatre in New York City with guest speaker Paul Rudd. He then headed to Philadelphia, Washington D.C., Boston, Cleveland, Montreal, Vancouver, Seattle, San Francisco, Los Angeles, and Denver over the last few weeks. Tonight he'll be hitting the Auditorium Theatre in Chicago, IL and tickets are still available at this location. RushCon is hosting a pre-show gathering at Reggies Bananna's Shack at 4PM, and a few tickets are still available. 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. Geddy has also been taking a high-res audience selfie from the stage after every show, and posting them for download on Rush.com here. For a complete rundown of the format and highlights from all the shows thus far, view the links below for RIAB's coverage of each night. After tonight's appearance, Geddy will head on to Detroit tomorrow, and then wrap up the North American leg this coming Thursday, December 7th at Massey Hall in Toronto. He'll then cross the pond for the UK tour beginning in Wolverhampton on Sunday, December 10th. You can get all the details and learn how to get tickets at Rush.com (North America, UK).
