Rush bassist/vocalist Geddy Lee has confirmed that the band is unlikely to play any more shows.
Speaking to Rolling Stone, Lee said, “I can’t really tell you much other than that there are zero plans to tour again. We’re very close and talk all the time, but we don’t talk about work. We’re friends, and we talk about life as friends. I can’t really tell you more than that, I’m afraid. I would say there’s no chance of seeing Rush on tour again as Alex, Geddy, Neil. But would you see one of us or two of us or three of us? That’s possible.”
The band have taken a sabbatical since ending their North American R40 tour in 2015. Rush guitarist Alex Lifeson had in January said that Rush were “basically done.”
When asked about whether a follow-up to his 2000 solo album My Favorite Headache is on cards, Lee said that he is been recording few parts here and there when he is playing in the studio, but he has not given much thought to a possible follow-up.
“I’ve been so busy the past three years with the Geddy Lee’s Big Beautiful Book Of Bass book project, which consumed my entire being, that I haven’t been thinking about another music project at this point.”
“I say that, and at the same time, another part of my brain is always thinking about another music project. But when you’ve spent 42 years working closely with the same people and formed the kind of bond and friendship that the three of us have had – and maintained to this day – it’s a big decision and a big question what you want to do next… or if you want to do something next.”
