Bruce Springsteen is set to honor and perform with the E Street Band when they are inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame at Barclays Center on April 10.

Linda Ronstadt will be inducted by Glenn Frey and saluted by Stevie Nicks, Bonnie Raitt, Emmylou Harris, Sheryl Crow and Carrie Underwood performing her songs since the singer is unable to attend due to her battle with Parkinson’s disease.

Kiss will be inducted by Rage Against the Machine’s Tom Morello, though they will not perform due to a disagreement with Rock Hall officials over which members of the band should be inducted and which should perform at the ceremony. At this point, no one is scheduled to perform the band’s music.

Nirvana will be inducted by Michael Stipe, though it is still not clear who, if anyone, will take the late Kurt Cobain’s place when Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic perform.

Coldplay’s Chris Martin will induct Peter Gabriel, who is set to perform, while Questlove will induct Daryl Hall and John Oates, who will also perform. It’s not clear who will induct Cat Stevens, now known as Yusuf Islam, though he is also set to perform.

This year’s induction ceremony will be the first ever open to the public in New York. It will air on HBO on May 31.
