Springsteen, U2 for Rock & Roll Hall of Fame celebration?
Bruce Springsteen, U2, Simon & Garfunkel and Aretha Franklin are among the acts rumoured to be performing at a huge 25th anniversary event celebrating the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame in New York.

The event is apparently taking place at Madison Square Garden on October 29 and 30, according to showbiz411.com, and will also feature slots from Paul Simon (also as a solo act), Stevie Wonder, Crosby, Stills, Nash, Young and friends, Metallica and Eric Clapton.

A DVD is reportedly being filmed over the two nights, and four hours of coverage will be shown on HBO in mid-November.

Paul McCartney, The Eagles and Prince are also among the acts tipped to take part.
