More details about the lineup for the 28th annual Rock And Rock Hall Of Fame induction ceremony have been announced, and part of the news is that the Seattle connection will be in full effect when Heart are inducted next month.
Pearl Jam's Mike McCready and Jerry Cantrell of Alice In Chains will perform with Heart at the event, which will also see Soundgarden’s Chris Cornell induct the group.
Four of this year's inductees — Heart, Randy Newman, Public Enemy and Rush — are confirmed to perform at the event, which will also honor Albert King and Donna Summer; as well as Lou Adler and Quincy Jones, this year's recipients of the Ahmet Ertegun Award for Lifetime Achievement.
The star-studded event will also feature appearances by Usher, who will perform for Quincy Jones; Spike Lee and Harry Belafonte, who will pay tribute to Public Enemy; Carole King, who will perform for Lou Adler; comedy legends Cheech & Chong, who will present Adler with his award; and Jackson Browne and John Fogerty, who will perform with Randy Newman.
John Mayer and Gary Clark Jr. will perform for Albert King, with Mayer giving the induction speech; 1998 Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame inductee Don Henley will induct Randy Newman; Christina Aguilera and Jennifer Hudson will perform in honor of Donna Summer; and Dave Grohl and Taylor Hawkins of the Foo Fighters will present Rush.
The induction ceremony will be presented on HBO on Saturday, May 18 at 9 p.m. ET/PT. More talent will be announced prior to the show.
