The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame has just announced most of the presenters for this year’s induction ceremony, taking place at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center on April 10.

KISS, who have quite publicly announced that they will not perform at the event, will be inducted by guitar virtuoso Tom Morello from Rage Against The Machine.

Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Michael Stipe of R.E.M. will come out of retirement to do the speech for Nirvana; there’s still no word as to whether or not there will be some sort of tribute to that band at the event.

Daryl Hall and John Oates will perform at the ceremony; Roots drummer Questlove will present them. Peter Gabriel, being inducted for the second time (the first was as a member of Genesis) will also perform; Coldplay‘s Chris Martin will do the honors there.
