McGee will lead conversations between fans and the frontman of the Bristol band at a trio of shows across November and December.
The talks will begin in The Y Theatre in Leicester on November 19 before heading to The Foundry in Sheffield and finally wrapping up with a pair of matinee and evening London shows on December 4.
