This year’s Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony just got even more star-studded.
When music greats gather to honor the likes of Pearl Jam, Tupac, Journey and more on April 7 at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center, Lenny Kravitz will also be in attendance to perform a special tribute to the late Prince.
Along with Kravitz, the Rock Hall also announced Wednesday (March 29) that Alicia Keys, Mary Chapin Carpenter and the Indigo Girls will be performing as well.But the big news doesn’t stop there. Pharrell is also set to present Chic’s Nile Rodgers with the Award for Musical Excellence, Train frontman Pat Monahan will induct Journey, and Dhani Harrison — son of The Beatles’ George Harrison — will induct Electric Light Orchestra.
Kravitz, Keys, Pharrell, Harrison and Monahan join a previously announced list of famous guests, with Snoop Dogg revealing earlier this week that he will induct his friend and rap legend Tupac Shakur. The first round of presenters was announced in January, including Neil Young (introducing Pearl Jam), Rush’s Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson (introducing Yes), and Jackson Browne (introducing Joan Baez).
Although the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony will take place April 7, the recorded event will air on HBO April 29 at 8 p.m. ET/PT. Prior to the ceremony, a special exhibit honoring the 2017 inductees will open at the Rock Hall in Cleveland on March 31.
