REM frontman Michael Stripe will induct Nirvana into the Rock And Roll Hall of Fame, it has been confirmed.

The ceremony, which will take place at Brooklyn's Barclays Center on April 10, will also see Rage Against the Machine guitarist Tom Morello induct Kiss and Bruce Springsteen induct the E Street Band, Rolling Stone reports.

Coldplay's Chris Martin will pay tribute to Peter Gabriel, and Glenn Frey of the Eagles will induct his former bandleader Linda Ronstadt. Stevie Nicks, Carrie Underwood, Emmylou Harris, Sheryl Crow and Bonnie Raitt will perform a tribute to the singer.

Questlove of the Roots will pay tribute to Hall and Oates, and Peter Asher is will induct Brian Epstein and Andrew Loog Oldham.

This year's event marks the first time the general public has been able to attend the ceremony in New York City. Previously, the closed ceremony took place in New York's Waldorf Astoria's grand ballroom.

Artists are eligible for induction 25 years after the release of their first record, meaning Nirvana, who released debut album 'Bleach' in 1989, have been nominated at the first possible opportunity. Last month, original Nirvana drummer Chad Channing said that he would not be inducted with his bandmates.
