11:56AM EST | comments (61) |

Rush and the Rock HallLast Wednesday 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 which will be conducted via Ticketmaster at this location. AMEX pre-sales along with VIP package pre-sales began last Thursday. Those pre-sales have since ended but the fan and Rock Hall member pre-sales will kick-off today at 10AM PST (1PM EST). Public ticket sales will begin this coming Friday, February 1st. Rush revealed details regarding the fan pre-sale via the Rush newsletter last Wednesday 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. ...

If you are a Rock Hall member, you should have received information via their newsletter regarding the member pre-sale. Multiple price levels will be offered from $75 all the way up to $750 as shown in this Nokia Theatre seating chart. As 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. Reader (and author) Phil Simon has also created a Facebook group and associated event for the induction for those who plan to attend.

#60 - Last year each group played 2 to 4 songs and then they all played together at the end of the ceremony. I'd love to see the FF play along with Rush. Not sure how Christine Aguilera or Jennifer Hudson would fit in...It could be REALLY interesting.

Although I am solidly in the camp of Rush fans who think the induction is meaningless, I am interested in how the inductees' performances work. Does every inductee get to perform, followed by all of them performing one song together? If so I hardly think a Rush song is likely to be performed. Far more likely something like Barracuda, imo. You know... something people watching from their armchairs will know...

a possible explanation may that i was standing in line with 6' fence posts, talons were kinda going, this isn't wood... Angels obviously knew RUSH was significant in this life for a long time, gotta love Nature, and the flight was silent, love telling that story peace all

Speaking of (#54)...
In the past few years (for the first time in history) Great Horned Owls are attacking lumbermen/operators heads (hoping to surprise attack when hard hats are off)...Scientists that have been observing and studying conclude that the owls definately recognize them as responsible for destroying their habitat/nests
and deaths of their offspring (owlets)

"Fly by night away from here" no shit, eh ?

Geddy could just hang stage left w/ his Ricki'...
Alex stage right with Nancy on their Gibson/Fender (respectively)
And Ann could (with ease) belt out "No One At The Bridge"

Had a revelation last night. First, I saw Rush back in November (10th show I think for me) and then saw Heart for the first time six days later. Clearly two totally different shows, but both equally kick ass rock shows in their own right. If you have ever heard Ann Wilson sing live, you now what a treat it is, she truly kicks ass and Nancy is great on the guitar. With hall of fame show coming up soon, and knowing there is always collabrative tunes, everyone jamming, etc. Well last night I had a vision of Ann and Nancy joining Rush on stage for some classics, and I am now totaly amped up for this hoping Ann will get to belt out some Rush classics? Working Man? Anthem??? yes yes yes please let this happen. On that note, know Dave Grohl and Taylor Hawkins will be there, got me thinking.... well I've always thought at some point I'd hear Grohl and the Foos cover Headlong Flight, just seems up their alley, so wondering about maybe those guys jamming with Rush on that tune and taking some verses....just seems like a perfect fit. make this happen!!! I need HBO asap. smh....

love how you all make this blog community so normal and cool at once, the music always inspires, driving this caravan along, so wanted to share a true story, once in a Hawaiian garden, at eye level, a huge owl flew straight at me, thought it was going to take my head off, but i stood still, and it was dusk, could not believe what was happening, just at the last second it flared and landed on my head for about 4-5 seconds and flew off, coolest thing ever, big bird, talons of mercy, angelic time, hope to see you in Austin

I had originally considered going, due to the fact that I have been supporting their induction for the past 15 years. However, the logistics of the situation have caused me to reconsider. First of all, I would have to fly from Tucson to Los Angeles. Then, I would have to stay overnight in a hotel, plus I would need to eat out. Then add the cost of purchasing 2 tickets @ $750 a piece and I am looking at spending $2,500 or so. If the members of Rush were being inducted by Robert Fripp, Steve Howe, Peter Gabriel, or David Gilmour, I might reconsider. At the present time, I am far more interested now in seeing them receive the Kennedy Center Honors.
