Tonight a two-night celebration marking the 25th anniversary of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame will kick off at New York’s Madison Square Garden. Artists who have been inducted into the Hall will be sharing the stage with guests and collaborators, honoring their influences and essentially retracing the history of rock in the process.

Bruce Springsteen will share the spotlight with Tom Morello and John Fogerty tonight. Stevie Wonder will be joined by B.B King and John Legend, plus Simon & Garfunkel and Crosby, Stills and Nash will perform. The next day’s lineup boasts U2, Aretha Franklin (with Lenny Kravitz and Annie Lennox) and Metallica joined by Ozzy Osbourne. Plus, Jeff Beck will be stepping in for Eric Clapton, who had to cancel his set due to minor surgery.
