LOS ANGELES — Heart, Randy Newman and Quincy Jones were among the first inductees to arrive at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony Thursday.

The rockers, the singer-songwriter and the producer-mogul are part of 2013 induction class, which also includes progressive rockers Rush, rap group Public Enemy, disco queen Donna Summer, bluesman Albert King and producer Lou Adler.

Heart, Newman, Public Enemy and Rush were expected to perform at Thursday night’s star-studded event, while Christina Aguilera and Jennifer Hudson were set to perform in honor of the late Summer at the 28th annual induction ceremony at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles.

Other artists scheduled to attend included the Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl and Taylor Hawkins, who will present Rush; Jackson Browne and John Fogerty, who will perform with Randy Newman; Pearl Jam’s Mike McCready and Alice In Chains’ Jerry Cantrell, who will join Heart; Spike Lee and Harry Belafonte, who will present Public Enemy; and Don Henley, who will induct Newman.

The event marks the first time since 1993 that the Cleveland, Ohio, institution has held its induction ceremony on the West Coast. The event will be broadcast May 18 on HBO.
