TORONTO - When Rush is finally inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame this April, Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl and drummer Taylor Hawkins will be on hand to pay tribute to the Toronto power trio.

Joining Rush among the honourees are fiery New York rap pioneers Public Enemy, disco innovator Donna Summer, influential blues guitarist Albert King, singer/songwriter Randy Newman and American-Canadian rock outfit Heart.

John Mayer and Gary Clark Jr. will be on hand to perform for King with Mayer giving the induction speech, while Don Henley will induct Newman.

Christina Aguilera and Jennifer Hudson will perform in Summer's honour.

Advance tickets for the event go on sale Thursday and the public sale begins Feb. 1, with tickets ranging in price from $75 to $750.
