Rush and the Rock HallToday is the big day. Rush will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in a ceremony to be held tonight at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles at 7PM PST (10PM EST). The band will be inducted by Dave Grohl and Taylor Hawkins of the Foo Fighters and will be performing. An edited 2-hour version of the ceremony will air on HBO next month, but there will not be any kind of live streaming of the event. Also - Rush has unfortunately decided to have a closed rehearsal today, so those few who purchased VIP packages including viewing of rehearsals won't be seeing Rush... although they will be seeing the other performers rehearse. From thee looks of this Tweeted photo Rush will be sitting next to Public Enemy tonight (thanks David J). I'll be at the ceremony and will be posting live updates and photos - mostly via Twitter @rushisaband. I'll also be updating this thread as I am able to. You can follow my updates on Twitter or via my Twitter feed widget below. The Cleveland Plain Dealer will also be covering the event live at this location beginning at 9PM EST. See you in LA!
