Rock Hall inducts Pearl Jam, Tupac and Journey

NEW YORK — Seattle rockers Pearl Jam, the late rapper Tupac Shakur and 1970s hitmaking band Journey were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on Friday night.

Joan Baez, Electric Light Orchestra and Yes were also part of the 2017 class inducted at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, which kicked off with a tribute to Chuck Berry.

The new inductees closed the multihour event with a group performance, and before that, Pearl Jam electrified with a performance of its well-known songs.

David Letterman inducted the band, and brought a small guitar and letter onstage he said Vedder gave to his son days before his late-night show ended in 2015.
