geddy lee talks about massey hall in toronto

Discussion in 'Bassists [BG]' started by johhn smith, Sep 27, 2009.


  1. In June 1976, Rush ended their 2112 tour with three sold-out concerts at Massey Hall, an historic event at an historic venue. These shows were recorded for the double-live album All the World is a Stage an album that broke the band in the U.S., becoming their first Top 40 Billboard hit and paving the way for a string of famous Rush live albums. It was a first for Rush, but not the first time singer/bassist Geddy Lee felt magic on the stage at Massey. Geddy takes us on a tour inside the legendary concert hall and back to the 1970s to reminisce on how getting to watch Cream and Genesis rock Massey Hall as a star-struck teen set the stage for him to make rock music history there himself.

    Director: Bruce McDonald, 2009

    Massey Hall has always had a magical mojo about it , so many amazing shows have been played there. What was call the best jazz concert of all time was played there , with Mingus , Bird , Dizzy , Bud and Max the recording was amazing.
