With a new class about to be inducted into theRock & Roll Hall of Fame, the Rock Hall has opened a new exhibit that highlights the 2016 inductees (Cheap Trick, Chicago, Deep Purple, N.W.A, Steve Miller and Ahmet Ertegun Award for Lifetime Achievement recipient Bert Berns).

An interactive discussion about the Class of 2016 takes place April 7 through April 9 as an expert team of educators and curators shares “rarely heard stories” about the current crop of inductees.

The exhibit includes a number of special artifacts. Rick Nielsen’s 1981 Hamer Custom guitar (pictured), which was created by sanding down and laminating five guitar bodies, is one of the many Cheap Trick items featured. Chicago has contributed “Saturday in the Park” lyrics handwritten by Robert Lamm in 1972. Ritchie Blackmore of Deep Purple’s 1961 Gibson ES-335 TDC he played on the first five Deep Purple albums will be on display as will MC Ren of N.W.A’s jacket. Miller has contributed his 1974 Fender Stratocaster from his personal collection.

Local residents (with a valid ID showing zip codes beginning with 440, 441, 442 and 443) can take advantage of a special two tickets-for-$20 offer at the Box Office from today through April 22.
