Cat Stevens May Not Attend Rock Hall Induction


Well…it looks like very few members of this year’s Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction class won’t be performing at the induction ceremony in April, including potentially Cat Stevens

According to ShowBiz411, the singer, now known as Yusuf Islam, is still not sure if he’ll even attend the show. 

The Rock Hall induction ceremony usually includes performances by the inductees themselves, but if Islam is a no-show, that means the only acts performing will be Hall & Oates, the E Street Band (which we assume will be joined by Bruce Springsteen, but there’s no confirmation yet) and Peter Gabriel

Obviously, Nirvana won’t be performing.  Inductee Linda Ronstadt also won’t be performing due to her Parkinson’s disease diagnosis. And of course, KISS definitely won’t be performing for a myriad of reasons.

It’ll be interesting to see how the time is filled at the April 10th show, that’s for sure.
