A Night for Neil - The Neil Peart Memorial Celebration
Follow The Event On Social Media
Overtime Angels has been diligently monitoring what is happening with Covid-19 and the current travel restrictions. Even though travel is permitted into Canada with proof of a vaccine, the current seating capacity for venues is limited to 1000 people in Ontario / St. Catharines. Ticket sales have well superseded this seating restriction, so we are forced, yet again, into postponing “A Night for Neil”. WE ARE NOT GIVING UP HOPE!! There are way too many people that want to convene together and honor the man who was been an intricate part of their life’s portfolio, Neil Ellwood Peart.
“A Night for Neil” is being re-scheduled for Saturday, April 23, 2022. This event is being carefully crafted to include memorial and celebratory segments guaranteed to reach all of our hearts. Our confirmed artists for the event include David Barrett, Brandon Dyke, Devah Quartet, Jacob Moon and Fleesh as well as Rush Tribute Bands Solar Federation and Permanent Waves. More artists and special guests will be announced once their re-scheduled tour dates are confirmed.
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.Click here for more details.
