Geddy Lee finished off the North American leg of his My Effin' Life spoken word book tour back on December 7th with a very special show at Toronto's iconic Massey Hall with his BFF and band-mate Alex Lifeson. The show featured a number of cameras set up around the venue along with signs warning attendees that it was being filmed. According to a paragraph buried in this article featuring an interview with Geddy Lee, the footage will be used for an upcoming special episode of CBC Music's Live at Massey Hall (thanks RushFanForever):

... On December 7 the "In Conversation" tour brought him back to Toronto's Massey Hall - the iconic venue where Rush recorded their landmark live album All The World's A Stage in 1976 - and the special guest interviewer was none other than his wise-cracking bandmate and friend of 57 years - Alex Lifeson. The evening was filmed for a CBC Music Live at Massey Hall series special, while Lee now heads to the U.K. for five more appearances. ...

There's still no word on exactly when the special will air, but we'll be sure to let everyone know when we do. Geddy will be wrapping up the UK leg of his tour this coming Monday at London's Barbican.
