Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony ticket sale and pre-sale information released
7:05PM EST | comments (68) |

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.

Rush and the Rock HallThe 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.

Bucklemyshoe...are you drinking and posting like I often do?
#62 - Posted 1/21/13 @11:48PM by Enigmaticus [contact]

Why not have three time inductee Eric Clapton induct Rush. Wouldn't that be appropriate?

Rush is my favorite singer. I hope he plays two-one-one-two at the RRHOF.

I turned on the tv briefly tonight and caught a snippet of some band playing at the Inaugural Ball---made me think how cool it would be to have Rush play "Second Nature" at one of these. Ridiculous, i know....

Off topic... I'm assuming one or two of you out there in RIAB land have a copy of the extremely limited screen print of "Rush Cleveland 12" by legendary Cleveland artist Derek Hess. If you have one, you're probably hanging on to it. If ever you need some cash and want to let it go please, please, e-mail/PM me via this site. I really want this 1st edition print and I will buy if the price is reasonable and you will know it's going to a true fan and not just an investor.
