A new date for the hometown tribute to Neil Peart has been announced

Earlier this year, an event commemorating the life and career of Rush’s Neil Peart was set for his hometown of St. Catharines. Then COVID-19 hit, which meant that everything needed to be postponed.

We now have a new date. A Night for Neil will take place Saturday, April 17, 2021, at the Merdian Centre. And before you ask, yes, this is being done with the blessing of Neil’s family.

From the press release:

Tickets purchased for this event will be honoured for the new date. Should you require a refund, they are available at point of purchase and may be done so up to 30 days prior to the event. Click here for more details.

We are also thrilled to announce a handful of confirmed artists for the event including; David Barrett, Brandon Dyke, Rush Tribute bands Solar Federation and Permanent Waves, Devah Quartet, Jacob Moon and Hannah Burkholder. We continue to work on securing more artists and special guests and will announce them once their re-scheduled tour dates are confirmed.
