Both former Beatles, Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr, will be present at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony in Cleveland next month. The Rock Hall has announced most of their presenters and performers for the ceremony, and they’ve confirmed that Paul will be presenting to Ringo.
Other presenters include Stevie Wonder to Bill Withers, Patti Smith for Lou Reed, Peter Wolf of J. Geils Band for The Paul Butterfield Blues Bland, Fall Out Boy for Green Day, John Mayer for Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble, and Steve Cropper for the “5” Royales.
No word who will induct Joan Jett and the Blackhearts.
Performers will include Beck (sorry Kanye West), Dave Grohl, Ringo’s brother-in-law Joe Walsh, Tom Morello, John Legend, and SRV’s big bro Jimmi Vaughan, along with ‘others to be announced’.
The induction ceremony will take place Saturday, April 18 at Cleveland’s historic Public Hall. Tickets are sold out, with some VIP packages still available via (216) 515-‐1232 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more info.
The broadcast will premiere on HBO on Saturday, May 30. Visit the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, online for more.
