Geddy Lee and Ed RobertsonIconic Canadian band The Barenaked Ladies along with their former bandmate Steven Page will be inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame by Rush's Geddy Lee at the 2018 Juno Awards ceremony TONIGHT in Vancouver. Barenaked Ladies founder Ed Robertson was interviewed for Billboard earlier this week and had this to say about getting Geddy to induct the band:

Oh man, for me that's like an actual dream come true. I reached out to Geddy and said, 'Hey, listen, this is an actual, literal teenage dream, but I am an adult now so I understand if you can't make this work.' And he's just been awesome. So he's going to do the induction, which is beyond a thrill to me. There's so much to look forward to -- we're gonna play, Geddy's doing the induction. It's a total dream weekend.

This year's ceremony will be hosted by multi-Juno Award-winner Michael Bublé and will be broadcast live from the Rogers Arena in Vancouver just a short time from now at 8PM EST, on CBC, CBC Radio One and CBC Music, and streamed globally at cbcmusic.ca/junos. Rush has won numerous Juno Awards over the years, including being inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame themselves back in 1994. As a matter of fact, in the video introduction from when Rush was inducted, the Barenaked Ladies are one of the many artists who offered up their congratulations as seen here.
