    The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum is gearing up for the big event in April and has announced the initial presenters, performers and ticketing information for the 28th Annual Rock and Rock Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony, to be held at Nokia Theatre L.A. LIVE in Los Angeles on Thursday, April 18, 2013.

    The ceremony will honor this year's recently announced inductees: Heart, Albert King, Randy Newman, Public Enemy, Rush and Donna Summer; as well as Lou Adler and Quincy Jones, this year's recipients of the Ahmet Ertegun Award for Lifetime Achievement.

    Special guests at the 28th Annual Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction should stoke fan fires, and are set to include John Mayer and Gary Clark, Jr., who will perform for King, with Mayer giving the induction speech; 1998 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Don Henley, who will induct Newman; Christina Aguilera and Jennifer Hudson, who will perform in honor of Summer; and Dave Grohl and Taylor Hawkins of the Foo Fighters, who will induct Rush. More details about performances, additional presenters and special guests will be announced at a later date.

    Advance tickets for American Express Cardmembers will be available from Thursday, January 24 at 10AM PST through Sunday, January 27 at 10PM PST.

    Can't make the ceremony, like many of us? Well, we can still watch the HBO broadcast on May 18 at 9PM ET.

    What's your opinion on this year's class of inductees? How about the special guests and performers?
