The seemingly endless wait for new season of That Metal Show is finally over! Rush’s Geddy Lee will be the featured guest for the season 14 premier, which airs on Saturday, February 21st on VH-1 Classic in the show’s new 9:00pm EST time slot.
Lee, who hasn’t appeared on the show since he and Alex Lifeson visited the set during the first season, will be discussing Rush’s 40th Anniversary Tour. This historic tour will visit 34 cities across North America, kicking off in Tulsa, OK on May 8th.
“I couldn’t be more honored to welcome back Geddy to the set to celebrate 40 plus years of Rush and the return of TMS!” states host/co-producer, Eddie Trunk.
Dream Theater’s 7-string guitar virtuoso, John Petrucci, will be making his TMS debut as the musical guest. With Lee and Petrucci, TMS is ushering in season 14 with prog rock royalty, and setting the bar very high for the following 11 episodes.
TMS fans can expect the return of some notable segments throughout the season with Trunk and fellow co-hosts, Don Jamieson and Jim Florentine, including: “Metal Modem,” “TMS Top 5,” “Rank” and “Take It Or Leave It.” Of course, no episode of That Metal Show would be complete without the most famous show segment – “Stump The Trunk.”
