Members of Journey have confirmed Perry will indeed be onstage at the induction ceremony in Brooklyn, but were mum on whether he'd sing with the group.
What time: The induction ceremony is April 7 at the Barclays Center in New York City.
According to reports, the remaining members of the band are open to the reunion. "I know that he's supposed to be there, but nobody's heard [if he's performing]". The band is slated to perform three songs: "Lights", "Separate Ways" and "Don't Stop Believin'" with Perry on vox for at least one of the songs.
When the induction was announced on December 20, Journey guitarist Neal Shon told Rolling Stone he has not been in regular contact with Perry, but was hoping he would perform with the band at the ceremony. "But what we've done over the years is quietly just continue to be relevant, so maybe they weren't right about us". We probably won't find out until he gets there. That was going really well.
Sessions Hits Pause on Enacting Police Reforms
MCEVERS: But this law requires that the federal government investigate patterns of unconstitutional policing. Chicago insists it'll push ahead with reforms no matter what the Justice Department does.
Perry was replaced as the band's vocalist in 1997 after he injured his hip and postponed surgery to correct it.
Following the ceremony, the band will take some time off and then spend May performing at The Joint at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas before hitting the road again this summer.
There has been no indication if, or when, it will be released.
Schon said that he's honored that Journey has been recognized by the Hall of Fame, but owes their success to their fans. The simpler explanation: A lot of people like those bands - as well as recent inductees Kiss, Chicago and Rush - and more and more of them are Rock Hall voters. Other artists being inducted are Pearl Jam, ELO, YES, Joan Baez and the late Tupac Shakur as well as Nile Rogers.
