"I thought it would never happen", Journey guitarist Neal Schon said in his acceptance speech. So David Letterman - who had the band on his show seven times - will fill in instead.

The sold-out ceremony will be edited down for broadcast April 29 on HBO, but Harris says that this year's inductees will be celebrated all summer long at the museum with a special exhibition and musical tributes, because people still have a vested interest in the event and museum. Snoop Dogg and YG performed "Gangsta Party", Treach from Naughty by Nature did "Hail Mary", and T.I. - decked out in Tupac's signature bowtie bandanna AND a leather corset - gave an affecting cover of "Keep Ya Head Up" that was clearly very meaningful for him.

The induction ceremony will also contain a Prince tribute by Lenny Kravitz and a ceremony honoring lifetime achievement recipient Nile Rodgers that will be led by Pharrell.

Pearl Jam, which like Tupac was inducted in the first year of eligibility, invited all five drummers from the band's career for the gala and played for the first time in 25 years with the original one, Dave Krusen.
