Rush Fan Day
Join us and 2013 Inductees Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson of Rush for a Fan Day on Saturday, January 19th at the Museum
Having played the bass guitar for over four decades, Lee has spent years collecting hundreds of vintage bass guitars. The sizeable collection turned into the impetus behind Lee’s new book, Geddy Lee’s Big Beautiful Book of Bass, and the Rock Hall’s Rush Fan Day, which features a new exhibit of Lee’s basses, a Hall of Fame Series interview with Lee hosted by bandmate Alex Lifeson, a book signing with Lee, and a rebroadcast of Rush’s Hall of Fame Induction.
Event tickets are now sold out for Rush Fan Day. Visitors can buy a General Admission ticket to the museum but will not be able to join the book signing or designated interview viewing area.

Available to event ticket holders only, tickets for Rush Fan Day include a copy of Lee’s new book, Geddy Lee’s Big Beautiful Book of Bass, and access to an exclusive book signing with Lee only. The 408-page, coffee table-style book documents the history and characteristics of Lee’s basses from 1968 to 2017, including mainstream Fenders, Gibsons and Rickenbackers to more obscure and lesser-known treasure in his collection. It features interviews from other musicians, including Led Zeppelin’s John Paul Jones, U2’s Adam Clayton, Metallica’s Robert Trujillo, Primus’ Les Claypool and Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy, and includes a graphic timeline of the bass guitar.
