Top 10 Hits Tour presented by Bell: Neil Peart “Hockey Night in Canada” Drum Kit

Explore the Top 10 Hits of NMC’s collection online with musically trained tour guides presented by Bell.

Custom-built for Neil Peart of the band Rush, this iconic drum kit was used during Peart’s percussion-heavy rendition of the “Hockey Night in Canada” theme song, seen in the opening sequence of the hockey telecasts on TSN. Inspired by Canada’s national pastime, the kit incorporated centre ice, the face off circles, and all 30 NHL logos into its graphics—complete with icy-blue metal hardware. On display at the Hockey Hall of Fame in Toronto since 2010, the drum kit recently accompanied Rush on all Canadian dates of their 40th Anniversary tour.
