Rod Stewart to Miss Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction
Rod Stewart will miss tonight’s Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony due to illness, according to a statement posted to his website. The singer was slated to reunite with the classic lineup of the Faces at the ceremony. The statement reads:
Unfortunately Rod is battling the flu this week and regrettably he is unable to accept his induction in person in Cleveland.
The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame congratulates Rod on his 2012 Induction and wishes him a speedy recovery.
“I’m absolutely devastated,” Stewart said. “Shattered that I’m going to miss my second induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame – and this time alongside my mates.”
Faces will play a short set after they are inducted with Simply Red’s Mick Hucknall singing vocals. He’s a friend of the band and has played with them before. We are thrilled that Mick dropped everything to hop on a plane to be here to play with Faces on Saturday night.
