The class of 2022 has been admitted Rock & Roll Hall of Fameand we have the pictures to prove it.
It was a star-studded night in Los Angeles as the Hall’s newest members accepted their honors. Duran Duran, Judas Priest, Pat Benatar and Neil Giraldo, Eurythmics, Carly Simon, Dolly Parton, Lionel Richie and Eminem were among the recorded artists. With the exception of Simon, who sent an acceptance letter which was read by Sara Bareilles, everyone attended and performed at the event.
Highlights of the evening included a host of surprise guests. Dave Grohl joined Richie for one reproduction of the Commodores’ “Easy” while Eminem’s set featured appearances by Steven Tyler and Ed Sheeran. Bareilles and Olivia Rodrigo did a commendable job honoring Simon, performing “Nobody Does It Better” and “You’re So Vain.” Duran Duran’s opening set was memorable, if a little uneven. After some technical issues, the band delivered a rousing performance with songs from across their impressive career. As expected, Judas Priest brought the thunder during their powerful set, reuniting with some estranged band members in the process.
Parton was the last inmate to be honored on the night. The country icon’s performance includes guests Pink, Brandi Carlile, Crow and the Zac Brown Band. Many of this year’s honorees shared the stage together at the end of the evening and collaborated in an all-star rendition of Parton’s “Jolene.” Springsteen and Mellencamp closed the event with a two-song tribute to Jerry Lee Lewis.
