Neil Peart, the drummer for Rush, passed away in January 2020 (ah, January – feels like a lifetime ago), and drummers across the planet have been mourning his death ever since. In honor of Peart, this year’s Modern Drummer Festival will feature a live-streamed event on Saturday, September 12th, to pay tribute to the late drummer, with special guests Chad Smith (Red Hot Chili Peppers), Rick Allen (Def Leppard), Taylor Hawkins (Foo Fighters), Charlie Benante (Anthrax), and more scheduled to perform. Tickets are being sold for $12.99, and for additional fees could include meet & greets, and other fun add-ons.

The purchase of a ticket allows viewers to stream the event on their phones, tablets, computers or TV. The event will benefit Cedar-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, specifically for brain-tumor research, since Peart passed away of a brain tumor in 2015. A Night For Neil, the Neil Peart tribute concert originally planned for May, but put on hold due to COVID-19, will now take place in April 2021. Check out the full story here.
