Chad Smith of Red Hot Chili Peppers and Taylor Hawkins of Foo Fighters are among the many drummers paying tribute to the late Rush icon Neil Peart during an upcoming livestream.

The online event, hosted by Modern Drummer magazine, will premiere this Saturday, September 12 via the streaming platform LiveXLive.com.

A ticket to watch costs $12.99, and you can also purchase virtual meet-and-greets with a selection of the performers, including Smith.

Other artists on the lineup include Korn‘s Ray Luzier, Anthrax‘s Charlie Benante and former Dream Theater drummer Mike Portnoy.

Peart, often regarded as one of the greatest drummers ever, died this past January at age 67.
