2015 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Presenters and Performers Announced
We already know that Green Day, Joan Jett, Lou Reed and Stevie Ray Vaughan are among the acts getting inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame this year. But who will induct them and what acts will provide musical tributes? That info has just been announced.
The list of presenters includes Paul McCartney (inducting Ringo Starr), Stevie Wonder (inducting Bill Withers), Patti Smith (inducting Lou Reed), Peter Wolf (inducting the Paul Butterfield Blues Band), Fall Out Boy (inducting Green Day), John Mayer (inducting Stevie Ray Vaughan) and Steve Cropper (inducting the 5 Royales). It was not revealed who would be doing the honors for Joan Jett and the Blackhearts.
And one of the biggest draws of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony is often the performances. Among those joining in the rocking for the night will be Dave Grohl, Tom Morello, Joe Walsh, Jimmie Vaughan, Beck and John Legend. The performers have not been attached as of yet to specific artists.
Grohl has been busy with the Rock Hall in recent years. He was on hand to induct Rush two years ago and went into the Rock Hall himself as a member of Nirvana last year. Morello, meanwhile, has been a Rock Hall favorite. Last year, he delivered a memorable speech inducting KISS into the Rock Hall.
The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony will be simulcast online and you can purchase tickets to the viewing party at this location. The 30th Annual Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony returns to Cleveland's Public Hall this year, taking place on April 18. For more details on this year's event, click here.
