Rush and the Rock HallYesterday the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame revealed details regarding the upcoming April 18th induction ceremony where Rush will be inducted, including the news that Dave Grohl and Taylor Hawkins of the Foo Fighters will be inducting the band. They also posted details regarding ticket sales and pre-sales:

Advance tickets for American Express Cardmembers will be available from Thursday, January 24 at 10 a.m. PST through Sunday, January 27 at 10 p.m. PST. Tickets can be purchased via Ticketmaster.

Preferred seating presales for members of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum, as well as members of the Heart and Rush official fan clubs, will begin on Monday, January 28 at 10 a.m. PST through Thursday, January 31 at 10 p.m. PST at Ticketmaster. Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum members should reference the official member e-newsletter for details.

The public on-sale will begin on Friday, February 1 at 10 a.m. PST. To purchase tickets, visit Ticketmaster or charge-by-phone at 1-800-745-3000. There will be a four-ticket limit on all orders. Additionally, three levels of VIP packages will be available through Ticketmaster. ...

All ticket sales and pre-sales will be conducted via Ticketmaster at this location. The AMEX pre-sale mentioned will begin today at 10AM PST (1PM EST) and the fan/member pre-sale will kick-off Monday at 10AM PST (1PM EST). Rush revealed details regarding the fan pre-sale via the Rush newsletter last night including the news that the password will be rushfan:

... We want to celebrate and share this moment with as MANY Rush fans in the room that night as possible! There will be a special Rush fan pre-sale that starts Monday, January 28 at 10 a.m. PST through Thursday, January 31 at 10 p.m. PST at Ticketmaster. The password for this pre-sale is rushfan. There will be preferred seating held in every price and seating area. ...

Also, Future Rock Legends tweeted a photo of the Nokia Theatre seating chart with ticket price levels. The upper balcony seats will be in the $75-$100 range, and then they jump up to $350-$750 for the lower levels!

As I'd mentioned above, Dave Grohl and Taylor Hawkins of the Foo Fighters will be inducting the band. Heart revealed yesterday via their Facebook page that Chris Cornell of Soundgarden will be doing the honors for them. Other artists that will attend the ceremony are John Mayer, Christina Aguilera, Jennifer Hudson, Don Henley, Gary Clark Jr., and Usher with more to be announced later. So what do you think about the Foo Fighters being chosen to induct Rush into the Rock Hall? Take the poll and let us know.

Got mine through Amex. Not cheap, $750 each, but primo seats. Orchestra level, midway. The big $$$ seats with rehearsals and after party were $2,000. I have always dreamed of going to an induction ceremony. Always have wondered how average schmoes like me could go? I think it's the Theatre venue in LA and the RRHOF can get extra profit. Don't care, seeing Rush get their due!!!!

I find it a bit odd that the HOF is in Cleveland and the ceremony is in LA. Not able to convince the "dignitaries" to go to Cleveland?

Do any of you think there would be the possibility to meet the guys even for a brief moment, and have a picture taken and a few words exchanged? Despite my objection to the HOF, I would possibly consider the premium ticket package for such an exchange.

Got tix as well. Looking forward to it!

utter rip-off! The only thing worth going to would be the rehearsals which would be fascinating to see (not just Rush).
