Oh no!  Let me know if you would want to spend the money for the autographed book. The ticket is $ 97.00.  My husband is going with me  (as far as he can) to the Philadelphia one and could be the second ticket and get the book signed for you.

Thanks, but I'm good. I met Geddy in '97 and got the autograph and photo. Spending four hours to stand in line for a 15 second meeting is more than I'm willing to do at this point in life.

I would love to be there, especially since I'm only 50 miles away, but as always - no money.

Somebody here that's going, do me a favor.  Ask Geddy if the "Hey Now!" from Headlong Flight is based on Hank Kingsley from The Larry Sanders Show.  (Don't everybody jump to commit to this now.)

97 dollars??? Is he going to play Entre Nous and The Analog Kid?  I want some deep cuts for that kind of scratch.

Oh it includes the book. That's a better deal. But it would be better if Terry Brown was there.

G.A.
Includes a Q&A (hosted by Rush producers Peters Collins & Nick Raskulinecz) + a copy of the Big Beautiful Book of Bass. Candid photos are permitted, but not while at the signing table. Geddy will not sign memorabilia.

$95.00

Collins & Raskulinecz will be at the Nashville appearance only.

Yeah, I swear that it was $85.00 for signings earlier in the summer! I guess 12 bucks is 12 bucks . . .:lol:

My former employer has a store on RUSH Street, just 20 minutes south of the B & N  book-signing location. I'll be making a stop there before I catch up with Geddy...

Tom Healey got one for Chicgo all right, thanks to Blueschica, one of the finest people I know!  Thank you for thinking of me and sending me the heads up, as I would have missed this!  There are truly some amazing people on this board.  In fact, it looks like I'll be meeting a friend for dinner before the signing.  He's taking his son to it.  They're not huge Rush nuts per se, but are huge music fans who appreciate Rush's musicality (and are amused no end by my Rush ardor).  Woop!  Can't wait!   Thanks again Blueschica!!  I owe you one!

I'm so glad you are able to go!  My husband is going with me and is much the same as your friend and son. (he hasn't decided if he is going to borrow one of my larger Rush shirts to wear, lol! ). Thanks for the kind words, and if I ever manage my long planned trip to see my cousins in Downers and Naperville I may make you pay up!  ;)   :)

That’s right—retail book price plus sales tax.

Apparently the kid in this photo was trying to eat sand. You can see it in his hand. That's how his mother got the shot.

Peart must be pissed that Geddy's got a bigger book tour than he's ever been able to muster!

Peart should’ve been doing book signings too but it’s just not in him to meet people like that. If I were him I’d go out of my comfort zone and do a limited book signing fandango. Fans would shit themselves then kill each other for those limited tickets.

Peart is really good at hide and seek. Well he's good at hiding but he doesn't bother seeking...
