Geddy has announced another book signing, this time in Toronto. ( He added the explanation of how the ticket was actually the book after some woman was complaining all over Instagram that she had already spent enough money on Rush over the years and didn't want to have to buy a ticket!  :wtf: )

The link doesn't give us the price for the event...I guess I'll find out in a few minutes anyway, but how much did you end up paying for your event?

I will not miss the chance of mentioning it to him, of course. But I doubt he'll remember, man...

You’re basically just paying for the book at both signings I’m pretty sure—no extra fee at all that I’m aware of, just full retail price plus tax.  Nice that he was able to work it out for 2 days in a row, and at home a day earlier than official release day.

My son who goes to U of T is going to get a book signed for me, how cool is that. Saves me flying up from New Jersey (I don't need to meet him again, done that already, thanks Laura).

Hoping for one in Vancouver! So if the book is the "ticket" and they already have your money, could you bring a record and have him sign that instead of the book? I figure he's signing something either way and it shouldn't make a difference. Anyone have experience with this?

Generally they don’t let you bring anything,  because if everybody had something they wanted him to sign besides the book, you could be there all day and night. But, if he’s only going to sign one thing and  you switched it out, maybe it would be ok?
I know that the bookstore in New Jersey doesn’t let people bring in backpacks, probably because they think people are going to still try to get other things signed, and it would just slow down the process.

At the Grapes Under Pressure we were told not to bring anything because we'd be getting a special item signed by Geddy and Alex. We got the bottle of wine with the label signed by them, and now I don't know how to properly preserve it. Some of us broke the rule and brought items anyway, which they gladly signed...I wish I had done the same!
