Rush bassist/vocalist Geddy Lee will bring to life his forthcoming memoir “My Effin’ Life”, due for release on November 14 by HarperCollins. In addition to the five dates in the U.K. announced last week, there will be 14 more cities added for North America that kicks off on November 13 at the Beacon Theatre in New York.

The evening promises to be a once-in-a-life-time event. After the curtain rises, 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 lifelong friends and Rush bandmates Alex Lifeson and Neil Peart. Joined on stage by a special guest interviewer, Lee will be reading key passages from “My Effin’ Life”; he will then share thoughts and stories taken from his experience. Fans will then have the chance to participate in a special Q&A, with Geddy answering their questions directly.

Geddy says: “Writing this book has meant spending so much time living in the past. 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.”
