“Tonight Show” Featuring Rock Hall Inductees This Week

LONDON, ENGLAND - SEPTEMBER 21: Yusuf Islam performing at The Peace One Day Celebration 2011 on September 21, 2011 in London, United Kingdom.
It's "Rock and Roll Hall of Fame" week on NBC's "The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon," with several inductees and participants from Thursday's (April 10) ceremony in Brooklyn slated to appear.

John Oates of Hall & Oates, celebrating his 65th birthday, will sit in with Fallon's house band The Roots tonight (April 7), while Cat Stevens (aka Yusuf Islam) performs on Tuesday (April 8). Wednesday's show (April 9) will feature Fleetwood Mac's Stevie Nicks singing with the Roots (she'll be part of a Linda Ronstadt tribute at the Rock Hall ceremony) while former Nirvana members Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic will also be appearing, although it's not known if they'll perform.

Fallon takes a break Thursday for the induction ceremony, but the current lineup of KISS will hit "Tonight" on Friday (April 11) for a performance. Bruce Springsteen's E Street Band, Peter Gabriel, the late Beatles manager Brian Epstein and original Rolling Stones manager and producer Andrew Loog Oldham will also be inducted on Thursday.

The Rock Hall inductions will be filmed by HBO for broadcast in May.
