These are the rumors, nothing confirmed as of yet!!!

Tentatively scheduled for the Thursday show are Bruce Springsteen, Simon & Garfunkel, Paul Simon as a solo act, Stevie Wonder, and the whole posse that includes Crosby, Stills, Nash, Young and friends.

Then on Friday: Aretha Franklin headlines, with U2, Metallica, and Eric Clapton. Those are the names I’ve heard so far, but we won’t be surprised if Paul McCartney, Sting, the Rolling Stones and a few other big names like Bob Dylan. I’d like to see some more black acts– like Earth, Wind & Fire, Al Green, Sam Moore, Gladys Knight and Smokey Robinson, and Mavis Staples.

Of course, there are all the great acts who have never been inducted into the Hall of Fame, almost too many to name including Hall & Oates, Linda Ronstadt, Chicago, Moody Blues, Carly Simon, Todd Rundgren, etc.

As I wrote last spring, Jann Wenner let this past year’s induction ceremony take place in Cleveland at the Rock Hall Museum because he knew he had this event coming up, Very clever, no? The question is, will the proceeds from these shows go to the Cleveland museum or into the Hall of Fame’s $14 million war chest for distribution by Wenner at his will. Maybe ticket buyers should specify that their donations — you know the ticket prices will be very high — go to the Museum itself.

Still unknown: whether the shows will be broadcast on Fuse TV, which has a three year contract with the Rock Hall. Fuse TV and the Garden are each owned by Cablevision.

Don't think Dylan will show, he has confirmed dates on his current tour for 7.23, 7.24 and 7.25...in NJ, MD and VA respectively.

On a side note, I just visited the RRHOF and loved it.

Two Duane guitars and one from Dickey that I noticed...they had a special ABB equipment setup.

I had a great time there along with my teenagers...you get a full dose of rock history, that is for sure.

Oh and Johnny Cash's tour bus is parked out front, you can go through it...it is a bit tiny compared to what extremely modern ones must look like.

I'd like to know where these rumours are coming from!
Will tix go on-sale before the MSG Springsteen concerts?
Will the common folk even be allowed to purchase tickets?!

Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Celebrates 25 Years with Two October Concerts in NYC - Eric Clapton To Appear
News entry published on 22 July 2009 / Last modified on 22 July 2009

On Wednesday July 22, 2009, Jann Wenner (Founder of Rolling Stone and Chairman, The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Foundation) hosted a morning press conference in New York City. Held at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Annex in Soho, it was to announce two concerts on October 29th and 30th at Madison Square Garden to celebrate the 25th Anniversary of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Performing on the 29th will be Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band, Simon & Garfunkel, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Friends, Paul Simon and Stevie Wonder. Eric Clapton will be performing on Friday October 30th along with Aretha Franklin, Metallica and U2. The shows will be packed with guest stars and unique collaborations designed to tell the story of rock and roll. American Express Cardmembers have access to advance tickets starting 9 a.m. on Monday, July 27th. Tickets will be on sale to the general public beginning Monday, August 3rd at 9 a.m.

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum is a non-profit organization that exists to educate visitors, fans and scholars from around the world about the history and continuing significance of rock and roll music. The main museum is located in Cleveland, Ohio. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Annex opened in New York City in December 2008. All proceeds raised from the concerts will go towards creating a permanent endowment for the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Foundation and Museum.

The Rock and Roll of Fame Foundation and Museum's 25th anniversary celebration will also extend beyond the concerts, with both a book and a deluxe nine-DVD boxed set of highlights from past induction ceremonies to be released this year.

The official press release is as follows:

THE ROCK & ROLL HALL OF FAME CELEBRATES ITS 25TH ANNIVERSARY WITH TWO GROUNDBREAKING CONCERTS

U2, Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band, Simon & Garfunkel, Metallica, Paul Simon, Aretha Franklin, Stevie Wonder, Crosby, Stills Nash & Friends and Eric Clapton along with Special Guests Set to Perform in Concert at Madison Square Garden

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - July 22, 2009: Music's biggest stars - Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band, U2, Paul Simon, Metallica, Eric Clapton, Aretha Franklin, Stevie Wonder, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Friends, Simon and Garfunkel - will come together on October 29th and 30th at Madison Square Garden for two unique concerts celebrating the 25th anniversary of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The shows, presented by American Express, will be packed with guest stars and unique collaborations designed to tell the story of rock and roll. American Express Cardmembers have access to advance tickets through ticketmaster.com or by calling 800-745-3000 starting 9 a.m. on Monday, July 27th. Additional sponsorship support for the event is being provided by Bacardi.

Each night will feature entirely different line-ups, with artists performing their own songs and the music that inspired them - tracing the history of genres ranging from soul to hard rock. All proceeds raised will go towards creating a permanent endowment for the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Foundation and Museum. "Twenty-five years ago a group led by legendary Atlantic Records founder Ahmet Ertegun created this foundation to recognize and celebrate the music and careers of artists whose music helped shape and define our generation," said Jann Wenner, Founder and Chairman of Rolling Stone and Chairman of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Foundation. "These once-in-a-lifetime concerts are designed to celebrate the artists and their music."

A creative team of Tom Hanks and his producing partner Gary Goetzman, Wenner, singer-songwriter Robbie Robertson, Academy Award-winning screenwriter, director Cameron Crowe and several others will work with the artists to curate the show through the live performances and filmed segments. Joel Gallen, the producer/director behind the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremonies and the MTV Movie Awards (1995-2006), will direct the show and oversee the 25th Anniversary Celebration along with the creative consultants.

This event is being presented in conjunction with the American Express Concert Series. American Express offers Cardmembers the exclusive opportunity to purchase advanced tickets to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Foundation 25th Anniversary Celebration, prior to public. Tickets will be available for purchase with an American Express Card through ticketmaster.com or by calling 800-745-3000, from 9 a.m. Monday, July 27th, through Sunday, August 2nd at 9 p.m. Tickets will be on sale to the general public beginning Monday, August 3rd at 9 a.m.

The Rock and Roll of Fame Foundation and Museum's anniversary celebration will also extend beyond the concerts, with both a book and a deluxe DVD set to be released this fall. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame: The First 25 Years, chronicling 25 years of induction ceremonies, will be published by Collins Design (an imprint of HarperCollins) in September. In August, Time Life will issue a nine-DVD boxed set of highlights of the past induction ceremonies, featuring speeches and all-star performances, many that have never before seen by the public.

Performing on October 29th will be:
Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band
Simon & Garfunkel
Crosby, Stills, Nash & Friends
Paul Simon
Stevie Wonder

Performing on October 30th will be:
Eric Clapton
Aretha Franklin
Metallica
U2

About the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Foundation and Museum: The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Foundation was established 25 years ago by legendary record executive Ahmet Ertegun and a group of music business executives to honor the artists that have defined rock and roll and have inspired and continue to inspire a generation. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum is the nonprofit organization that exists to educate visitors, fans and scholars from around the world about the history and continuing significance of rock and roll music. It carries out this mission both through its operation of a world-class museum designed by I.M. Pei in Cleveland, Ohio that collects, preserves, exhibits and interprets this art form and through its library and archives as well as educational programs.

with those prices the regular fan has no chance of decent seats if any & the prices & scalpers eliminate many...another jann wenner ripoff--and i'm disappointed the musicians with any social conscious or concern for their fans...i'm sure it can be an awesome show,so why not rip us off on the dvd as well--if it's any good at least if you can afford it it's there.who's making the money on this one? Jann? the artists?disgusting but predictable...

not condoning the prices but it does state that "All proceeds raised from the concerts will go towards creating a permanent endowment for the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Foundation and Museum." so I guess its about raising money for the cause.

Hell for that 1st night, I will take a shot at the nose bleeds.LOL!

This is a once in a life concert. However like most Rock and Roll Hall of Fame events,
usually very difficult, and pricey to get in. So $ 79.00 for upper tier is quite reasonable.

There will be many surprises and "jams", so it should be very interesting.

Clapton will have a few quests, as well as U2, and Bruce, etc.

Some of the pairings will be "quite interesting".

And remember the highlights will be on HBO and after that on VH1.

Yeah, if it was for any sort of good cause, I would be more inclined to buy a ticket. I'd rather save my cash and wait for HBO than make any kind of donation to the Rock Hall though.



It is what it is, but to get into something like this for under $ 100 ain't too shabby.

Of course binoculars are required. At least if i can't get in my DVR will be set to record.

It's the pairings and the jams that make the R&RHOF shows interesting.

Of course your tastes may be different from many others

Too expensive for shortened sets and then a stage at the end of the night that resembles the #4 subway train at rush hour.
