This year's Rock & Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony is scheduled at Barclay's Center in Brooklyn tonight. That may have changed, according to the gossip site TMZ, which is reporting that Perry will be singing on at least one of the three songs Journey is slated to perform during the ceremony; either "Lights", "Separate Ways" or "Don't Stop Believin'".
So the idea that the sudden influx of popular '70s bands like this year's inductees Journey, Electric Light Orchestra and Yes - fan favorites who have always been eligible and yet passed over - is some sort of ploy to save a struggling museum is wholly misguided. We were up for it like 17 years ago.
While Perry was slated to be at the induction ceremony and on stage to accept the award, there were no plans for him to perform with the band. Now, TMZ reports Perry's rep has no knowledge about the singer performing at the April 7, 2017 ceremony.

More than one-third of smartphone owners admit to texting while driving and a fourth say they surf the web behind the wheel. Moore and the Nayvelts were brought to Jersey Shore University Medical Center in Neptune to be treated for pain.
Since then, he has kept a relatively low profile. And speaking on a Los Angeles radio show in December 2015, Perry said he was working on his first solo album in 22 years.
Journey is one of six acts being inducted into the Hall of Fame at Friday's ceremony. Along with Journey and Yes, this year's class includes Pearl Jam (inducted by David Letterman), Tupac (inducted by Snoop Dogg), Joan Baez (inducted by Jackson Browne), and ELO (inducted by Dhani Harrison). 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.
