Alex Lifeson was a guest on Toronto radio station Q107's Derringer in the Morning earlier today to chat about the upcoming R40 Live tour, his involvement in the 1972 Allan King documentary Come on Children, the snubbing of Cleveland and other cities/regions on the tour, and more. The entire interview is now available for listening online at this location (thanks TheSphere1729). When asked about the format and setlist for the R40 Live tour Alex had the following to say:

... That's always a tough one. We've already gone through a couple of different setlist scenarios. We've been doing some editing. Dropping some stuff. We have an idea about how we want to approach it in terms of the whole show from front to back. We're working on these production ideas. It's gonna be really, really cool. We're gonna have a lot of fun with it, and I think our fans are gonna really, really like this little musical trip that we're planning. ...

You can listen to the entire interview below or at this location.
