Geddy Lee has announced a further run of dates on his book tour

The Rush (opens in new tab) vocalist and bassist has been touring in the US, Canada, the UK and Europe in support of his lavish publication Geddy Lee’s Big Beautiful Book Of Bass which was published earlier this year.

Geddy will visit Seattle, Denver, Phoenix and Austin at the start of November where he’ll hold further signing sessions.

Tickets for all the stops are now on sale through Rush’s website (opens in new tab), with the ticket price including a copy of the book for Geddy to sign. 

Speaking with Classic Rock about the book back in the summer (opens in new tab), Geddy said: “Initially it was a book for guitar lovers: lovers of vintage instruments. There are a lot of great, beautiful books on vintage guitars, but I felt there wasn't one real companion for the electric bass collector of the electric bass lover.”

He added: “Once I got more into it, the stories were very rich and revealing, and I included stories about the instruments I used throughout my own career because there's a hungry audience of Rush fans out there. 

“And that's how the whole project developed. It got bigger and bigger, and with me being a guy who doesn't think small, I ended up with a Big, Beautiful Book.”
