"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 honored for the new date. Should you require a refund, they are available at point of purchase and may be done so 30 days prior to the event.

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.
