Bid on Neil Peart signed drum head used on "All The Worlds A Stage" tour

The owner of Chromey has put a 16" Evans hydraulic drum head up for auction that was used by Neil Peart on the All the World's a Stage tour. (Neil also signed the head in 2010.) All proceeds will go to the American Red Cross to support the relief effort for the EF5 tornado that struck Oklahoma on 5/20/2013.

The auction ends on Jun 06, 2013 17:24:18 PDT.

Neil Peart Used Autographed Drum Head from "All The Worlds A Stage" Tour | eBay


From the auction listing:

Up for auction we have a very rare and historical piece of music memorabilia for any Rush fan or collector. An original 16" blue hydraulic drum head that was mounted on Neil Peart�s first drum kit with Rush (1974 chrome Slingerland). This head was used during "All the Worlds a Stage" tour and was later signed by Neil Peart himself on 9/26/2010.

All proceeds from this auction will support the American Red Cross towards the relief efforts of the violent EF5 tornado that struck Oklahoma on 5/20/2013, destroying neighborhoods and leaving a path of destruction 17 miles long which may have created $2 billion or more in damage as it tore through as many as 13,000 homes, multiple schools and a hospital. This has been a major disaster, and the Red Cross will be there for the people in this state and this community, which helps provide food, shelter and emotional support to those affected by disasters like the recent tornado in Oklahoma as well as other disasters throughout the United States.

Last night, Rush completed the first leg of the Clockwork Angels 2013 tour in Atlantic City. As expected, the band has continued the same show as 2012. (Power Windows has a nice graph of the setlists played at each show, and it looks like Rush is alternating between 4 setlists so far.)

Here are some highlights from Photos of the Night (thanks John Arrowsmith and Rush), Neil and Michael's WestSideBeemerBoyz Twitter account, and a few other sources.
