The late Rush drummer Neil Peart will be honored this Saturday with a tribute concert featuring famous musicians such as Mike Portnoy, Carl Palmer, Stewart Copeland, Taylor Hawkins, Chad Smith and more.
The tribute event will be held as part of this year’s Modern Drummer Festival, and will stream live at midnight UK time Saturday, September 12th at 8pm EST. Tickets allows you to stream the event stream the show on your mobile phone, tablet or computer, and can be purchased at the link here.
Peart passed away in January this year from brain cancer aged 67. The event is pay-per-view, tickets costing $12.99 and all proceeds going to brain tumor research at Cedar-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. Also set to appear are Chicago’s Danny Seraphine, Carmine Appice, Def Leppard’s Rick Allen, Kenny Aronoff, Greg Bissonette, Todd Sucherman and more.
A Night For Neil, the Neil Peart tribute concert originally planned for May, but scuppered by the COVID-19 pandemic, will now take place in April 2021.
