Rush bassist Geddy Lee announces US book tour

Rush frontman Geddy Lee has announced a handful of US dates this month for a series in-store signing events in support of his latest project, “Geddy Lee's Big Beautiful Book Of Bass”

The book celebrates the history of the instrument alongside Lee's personal collection of vintage electric bass guitars, which dates from the 1950s to the 1980s.

Lee’s week-long series will begin in Nashville, TN on July 14, where the rocker will sit down for a question-and-answer session with hosts and previous Rush producers Nick Raskulinecz and Peter Collins; he’ll then travel for in-store events in St. Louis, Chicago, Boston, Philadelphia and Atlanta.

One ticket grants you admission and one copy of "Geddy Lee's Big Beautiful Book Of Bass" for Geddy to personalize; no Rush memorabilia will be signed. Candid photos are permitted, but not while at the signing table.

Order tickets for the US events via rush.com.

Fans will get a behind the scenes look at the making of Lee's new book during a worldwide screening of the Rush theater event, “Cinema Strangiato.”

Billed as the first "Annual Exercise In Fan Indulgence", the screening will present material from the band’s 2015 R40 40th anniversary tour, including live performances and unreleased backstage moments alongside unseen soundcheck footage of the fan-favorite "Jacob's Ladder", and exclusive new interviews with Tom Morello, Billy Corgan, Taylor Hawkins, producer Nick Raskulinecz, violinist Jonathan Dinklage and more.

Full theater event details are available at cinemastrangiato.com.
