The newest set of Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees will be revealed at a press event at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in Los Angeles this Tuesday at 11 a.m. PT.
Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea will announce the respected performers who will make up the Rock Hall’s Class of 2013. Flea also will disclose the luminaries who will receive the Ahmet Ertegun Award, which recognizes producers, songwriters and other non-performers who have had a major influence on rock and roll.
Among the artists who’ve been nominated for induction into the Rock Hall are Chic, Deep Purple, Heart, Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, Randy Newman, Procol Harum, Rush and Donna Summer.
Some of the honorees are expected to attend the announcement event. Next year’s ceremony will mark the first Rock Hall induction to take place in Los Angeles since 1993. The event will be held at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live on April 18. A special featuring highlights from the gala will air on HBO at a later date.
