Get yourself to St. Catherine's in Ontario if you can:
The family of Neil Peart has authorized an official memorial concert to honor the late Rushdrummer, who passed away last month following a private battle with brain cancer. The event, dubbed “A Night for Neil – The Neil Peart Memorial Celebration”, will take place in the Canadian musician’s hometown of St. Catharines, Ontario.
Peart’s family is working with Rush’s charity organization, Overtime Angels, as well as the city of St. Catharines to coordinate the tribute show with event producer George Roche. The celebration will take place May 16th at the Meridian Centre hockey arena.I would think that this would give a number of performers a chance to adjust their schedules and appear. Plus, all of this will be for a good cause:
The show will not only benefit Overtime Angels, but also St. Catharines Hospital and Walker Cancer Centre; The Juravinski Hospital & Cancer Centre in Hamilton, Ontario; and The Royal Victoria Regional Health Centre in Barrie, Ontario.
“A Night for Neil” tickets go on sale to the public this Friday (February 28th) via Ticketmaster, with pre-sales beginning as early as Tuesday (February 25th).
