Kicking off a day before his memoir is set to release, the Live Nation produced My Effin’ Life, Geddy Lee tour will begin in New York on November 13. The 14-city tour will include stops across North America in Boston, San Francisco, Chicago and more before wrapping up in Toronto on December 7.

According to an official press release, “the evening promises to be a once-in-a-life-time event.”

“After the curtain rises, Geddy Lee will give his fans a peek into the very fabric of his life: from a deep reflection of his family and childhood, to a dive into the history of Rush; from the determined pursuit of music, to the personal memories with his life-long friends and bandmates, Alex Lifeson and Neil Peart.”

Set to be joined on stage by a special guest interviewer, Lee will also take time to read some key passages from his forthcoming book My Effin’ Life, and then share thoughts and stories taken from his experience. Audience members and fans will then have the chance to participate in a special Q&A.

“Writing this book has meant spending so much time living in the past,” Lee expressed about the experience of composing his memoir. “I’ve never lived my life looking anywhere but forward, which is why I resisted doing this kind of thing for so long. Being in a band all those years was reassuring because it was an ongoing thing. It felt like it was forever. There was always unfinished business: the next record, the next set design, the next tour. It’s been the theme of my life. But 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.”

Various ticket pre-sales options will be available — HERE — starting October 3, as well as General ticket sales beginning Friday, October 6 at 10AM local time.  Every ticket purchased includes a copy of Geddy Lee’s My Effin’ Life which will be provided to the ticket holder upon entry into the venue (4 ticket limit per person).
