|Guns n' Roses|
Guns N’ Roses lead the list of 2012 inductees into the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame. GNR enter on their first year of eligibility, 25 years after the release of their debut, 1987’s mega-selling “Appetite For Destruction.”
Joining GNR in the Class of 2012 performers category are The Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Beastie Boys, The Small Faces/The Faces, Donovan and Laura Nyro.
Bluesman Freddie King will be inducted in the “early influence” category; Don Kirshner enters under the non-performer Ahmet Ertgun Award; while three producers receive the Award for Musical Excellence: Glyn Johns, Tom Dowd and Cosimo Matassa.
All eyes will be on Cleveland for the 2012 event: the 27th annual Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony will take place on Saturday, April 14, 2012. The ceremony and concert will be recorded by HBO for broadcast in early May.
The question on everyone’s mind is what happens with GNR: can the original lineup pull themselves together for the occasion, be cool with each other...and even perform at the show.
The 2012 event will be open to the public, as it was – for the first time in the event’s history – at the 2009 Inductions in Cleveland.
Tickets to the 2012 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony go on-sale to the public on Saturday, December 17, 2011 beginning at 10 a.m. EST. To purchase tickets, visit rockhall.com or call (877) 212-8898 (please note, this number will not be activated until 10 a.m. EST on 12/17).
Tickets are expected to sell-out quickly. Individual tickets to the Induction Ceremony are available for $50 and $100. There will be a two ticket limit on all orders.
