The memorial celebration for Neil Peart has been postponed until November

No surprise here. Organizers of a memorial celebrating Neil Peart have decided to move the event to November as a result of the COVID-19 situation. This is the second time the date has changed because of the pandemic. It’s now set for November 6, 2021. Here’s the statement from Overtime Angels, the non-profit behind the event.

“Though we live in trying times, we’re the ones who have to try…” We hope this message finds you all healthy & safe as COVID-19 restrictions force us to once again postpone “A Night for Neil” until the Fall of 2021. The new date, with a flexible plan, is scheduled for Saturday, November 6, 2021. Overtime Angels, in coordination with the Meridian Centre, will be evaluating any quarantine protocols or travel restrictions to Canada three months prior to the new date so that all the fans who have purchased tickets have a reasonable amount of time to reschedule any associated travel/hotel reservations. We are so grateful for our fans and appreciate your patience, understanding and heartfelt passion as we hope we can soon hold A Night for Neil – The Neil Peart Memorial Celebration. Tickets purchased for this event will be honoured for the new date. Should you require a refund, they are available at the point of purchase and may be done so up to 30 days prior to the event. Click here for more details.

“This event is being coordinated with the cooperation of the members of the Muskoka and St. Catharines Peart families.”
