A Night for Neil: The Neil Peart Memorial Celebration concert and charity fundraiser was originally planned to take place on Saturday, May 16th at the Meridian Centre in Neil Peart's hometown of St. Catharines, Ontario. However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic the event has now been rescheduled to October 17th. Here's the official statement from the event organizers:

March 30, 2020 - The team at A Night for Neil has been diligently working with the venue, speakers and performers to secure a new date for our event. We watched and waited while the unprecedented events happening around the world unfolded before us. As COVID-19 and its effects swept across the globe, we knew ultimately we would need to make the decision to postpone our event. The fans have proven their love for Neil is great as they continued to buy tickets even during these times of uncertainty. We are thrilled to announce a new date of October 17th has been secured. Please hold on to tickets that have already been purchased as they will be valid for the new date. If you require a refund, we ask you to visit this link to find out how to ensure that happens. These times are challenging, but we know the fans need live entertainment and we look forward to celebrating Neil with all of you!

In addition to Overtime Angels, the charities chosen by the Peart Family as beneficiaries of this event are: St. Catharines Hospital and Walker Cancer Centre, The Juravinski Hospital & Cancer Centre in Hamilton, and the Royal Victoria Regional Health Centre in Barrie. Please follow the event on social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram) and/or subscribe to the email list at this location to get the latest information.
