A tribute show in honor of late Rush drummer Neil Peart will be held May 16 in the iconic musician’s hometown of St. Catharines, Ontario, Canada.

Dubbed “A Night for Neil,” the concert is being organized by Rush’s charity organization Overtime Angels. According to a press release, a “growing roster of artists and guest speakers” for the event will be announced at a later date.

In addition to honoring Peart, the show will raise money for a variety of Canadian hospitals and health centers.

“We are grateful for the team that Overtime Angels is assembling,” say Peart’s parents, Glen and Betty. “We are especially pleased to be able to support this charity event that will benefit some much-needed organizations that are close to our hearts.”
