Sit back and immerse yourself in the awe-inspiring anecdotes from one of prog rock’s most respected musicians! Geddy Lee will pull back the curtains of the Orpheum Theatre to reveal his most well-kept secrets on Saturday, November 18th, as part of his fourteen-city “My Effin’ Life in Conversation” North American book tour in support of his new memoir.
Geddy Lee is the lead vocalist and bassist for the legendary Canadian rock group Rush. His work with the band produced several platinum and multi-platinum records, including their GRAMMY Award-nominated eighth studio album, Moving Pictures. Alongside his bandmates, Lee was inducted into the Juno and Rock and Roll Halls of Fame while also earning a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
“My Effin’ Life,” published by HarperCollins, chronicles Geddy Lee’s many personal histories, from distant childhood memories to his storied career as Rush’s fabled frontman. It features never-before-seen tales and photos, including his family’s WWII experiences, off-stage details of rock star life, and recollections of his time with friends and bandmates Alex Lifeson and the late Neil Peart.
Lee will read aloud passages from the book in each of the tour’s shows, where he’ll be joined by a special guest interviewer for a riveting back-and-forth discussing the musician’s insights. The reading will also include a special Q&A session with fans, not to mention free 1st edition copies of the memoir.
“... You need a lot more determination to proceed in the world of music without the comfort of your bandmates, and I can only hope that finishing this book will release me to return to what I do and love best,” Lee said in an official statement.
