The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame will be opening a 2013 inductees exhibit on April 16th, 2 days prior to the induction ceremony in Los Angeles on April 18th. The Rush portion of the exhibit will include a Neil Peart snare drum, Alex Lifeson's double-neck guitar and a Geddy Lee bass along with various other items. The exhibit will also include a three-screen multimedia presentation that tells the stories of the inductees. You can check out a short video tour of the new exhibit along with some photographs at the Cleveland Plain Dealer website. The induction ceremony will take place at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles on Thursday, April 18th and then be broadcast on HBO in the US and Canada on May 18th. In addition to Dave Grohl and Taylor Hawkins of the Foo Fighters inducting Rush, John Mayer and Gary Clark Jr. will perform for inductee Albert King, with Mayer giving the induction speech; Don Henley will induct Randy Newman, who will perform with Jackson Browne and John Fogerty; and Christina Aguilera and Jennifer Hudson will perform in honor of the late Donna Summer. Pearl Jam's Mike McCready and Jerry Cantrell of Alice In Chains will perform with Heart, and Chris Cornell of Soundgarden will induct them. Also, Usher will perform a tribute to Quincy Jones and Cheech and Chong will induct producer Lou Adler in honor of both artists' Lifetime Achievement Awards. The show is sold out but tickets are still available on a number of broker websites, and VIP ticket packages are also available (see for details). The Rock Hall is running a contest through Facebook where the winner will get a trip for 2 to LA for the ceremony. And Chicago's WLUP is also running a contest of their own where they'll send one lucky winner to LA for the induction. Just listen in to WLUP Friday at 4PM and be the 97th caller. You can get all the details at the WLUP website (thanks Dave S).
