The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony takes place this evening at Brooklyn's Barclays Center, with a pre-recorded telecast subsequently airing on HBO on April 29th. The band is slated to perform three songs: "Lights", "Separate Ways" and "Don't Stop Believin'" with Perry on vox for at least one of the songs. We were up for it like 17 years ago.

In related news, other rumors surrounding the ceremony have indicated that original Journey frontman, Steve Perry, may be joining his long estranged bandmates during their performance. And, now it will be for Journey, where he was the original lead singer.

While Perry was slated to be at the induction ceremony and on stage to accept the award, there were no plans for him to perform with the band.

But a rep for the band has countered those claims, telling EW, "We have just spoken with Steve Perry's manager and he confirmed to us that he will NOT be performing tonight".

He took small dig at his predecessor, saying those coming in and leaving the positions should work to maintain stability. But he says this is to ensure such decisions can be owned, justified and defended by the party's leadership collective.


Since then, he has kept a relatively low profile.

Musician Neil Young was originally scheduled to introduce Pearl Jam but cancelled - because of an illness - and has been replaced by former Late Show host David Letterman, the Rock And Roll Hall of Fame announced on Twitter.

EW has reached out to Rock Hall organizers for comment.

How do you get in: According to the Hall of Fame, "Artists are eligible for inclusion in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame 25 years after the release of their first recording - 1991 for this year's inductees".
