The footage includes Paul McCartney playing with Ringo Starr; sets by Journey, Rush, Pearl Jam and Cat Stevens, reunions by past and present members of Chicago and Cheap Trick; and the surviving members of Nirvana joined by Joan Jett, Sonic Youth's Kim Gordon and St. Vincent. Deep Purple, Peter Gabriel, Green Day and Yes also perform.

“From the first induction ceremony in 1986, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame has sought to honor the top names in all genres of rock ’n’ roll,” Joel Peresman, president of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Foundation, said in a press release. “These ceremonies have provided unique once-in-a-lifetime moments as the inductees and presenters come together to celebrate the legacy of these artists and it’s a privilege to produce this important part of music history and to share it with you!”
