Rush's April 18th Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony will air on HBO this coming Saturday, May 18th at 9PM EST. The listed running time on the HBO website for the edited, televised version is 168 minutes - nearly 3 hours. The actual ceremony itself was around 4 and a half hours long so hopefully they won't need to edit out any of the Rush content. It will also be available on HBO On Demand the following day. HBO is currently featuring the upcoming broadcast of the ceremony on their home page along with this behind-the-scenes promo video.
