Foo Fighters have been confirmed to induct veteran rockers Rush into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame at this year's ceremony next month.

Frontman Dave Grohl and drummer Taylor Hawkins will honour singer Geddy Lee, guitarist Alex Lifeson and drummer Neil Peart at the event at LA's Nokia Theatre on April 18. Organiser Joel Peresman said the pair may also perform with Rush.

He told Rolling Stone: "Dave and Taylor were one of the first people we thought about to induct Rush. They said 'yes' in about two seconds. I'm hopeful [they will perform]. More than a few times in the past, people have got caught in the moment and decide to perform. That’s what happened last year with Green Day - they were just there to present an award to Guns N' Roses, and after hanging around rehearsals, they decided to play. You have Dave around, Don Henley there – who knows what will happen? We have some very interesting people."

It has also also been confirmed that Don Henley of the Eagles will induct Randy Newman while John Fogerty and Jackson Browne will perform with him. Pearl Jam's Mike McCready and Alice In Chains' Jerry Cantrell will appear with veteran girl rockers Heart, who will also be inducted by Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell. Christina Aguilera and Jennifer Hudson will also perform in honor of the late Donna Summer.

The full list of inductees this year are as follows:

Rush
Public Enemy
Heart
Randy Newman
Donna Summer
Albert King
Lou Adler
Quincy Jones
