Rush bassist made a rare on-stage appearance Wednesday when he sat-in with The Claypool Lennon Delirium featuring Les Claypool and Sean Lennon. Lee’s guest spot took place at the Danforth Music Hall in Toronto.

Last night’s show was The Claypool Lennon Delirium’s first stop on a spring tour that ends on May 2 in support of the recently released South Of Reality. Geddy emerged at the end of a 13-song main set for a cover of the Beatles’ “Tommorow Never Knows.” The Rock & Roll Hall Of Famer stepped onto the stage shortly after The Claypool Lennon Delirium began the song from the Fab Four’s 1966 album Revolver and went on to engage Les in double bass action for most of the jammed-out “Tomorrow Never Knows.” Claypool left the stage towards the end of the cover to allow Geddy a chance to shine. Lee’s friendship with Claypool dates back to a period in the ’90s when Les’ band, Primus opened for Rush.

The Claypool Lennon Delirium went heavy on the covers as they also fit songs by Pink Floyd, King Crimson and The Who into a set that featured two tunes off South Of Reality and four from their 2016 debut LP, Monolith Of Phobos. Wednesday’s concert came to a close with a “Southbound Pachyderm” encore. Watch fan-shot video of Geddy Lee joining The Claypool Lennon Delirium for “Tomorrow Never Knows” captured by TimmyB707:
