Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony ticket sale and pre-sale information released
UPDATE - 1/21@3:45PM: Heart has posted a promotional poster for the Rock Hall induction ceremony to their Facebook page. The poster lists special guests John Mayer, Christina Aguilera, Jennifer Hudson, Don Henley, Gary Clark Jr., Usher, Dave Grohl and Taylor Hawkins with more to be announced later. The fact that Grohl and Hawkins are included in this list tells me that the Foo Fighters will likely perform and might be inducting Rush. Thanks to Future Rock Legends for the heads up.
The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame has released some updated information regarding tickets for the April 18th induction ceremony at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in Los Angeles where Rush will be inducted. They had previously been reporting that tickets would go on sale to the public on Friday, January 25th but have pushed that back one week to Friday, February 1st. They also revealed that there will be a members-only pre-sale beginning on Monday, January 28th for those whose memberships were active as of January 1st, 2013. Information regarding member access and order details will be provided in an email to members next week. According to Seattle radio DJ Mark Christopher ticket prices will range from $75 up to $3000 for a VIP experience. Rush made it clear in several interviews following the induction announcement that they would be attending the ceremony and do plan on performing. The Rock Hall has not yet released any details regarding the ceremony itself as of yet, including who will perform and in what order, and who will be inducting the various artists. From what I've been hearing the band won't be kicking off the 2013 North American leg of the Clockwork Angels tour until after the April 18th induction ceremony.
