In honor of the 60th anniversary of the iconic song, “Shout,” 1992 Inductees Ron and Ernie Isley of the Isley Brothers will come to the Rock Hall on Friday to participate in an interview.

The free event begins at noon.

To mark the occasion, the Rock Hall will play highlights from the Isley Brothers' 1992 Induction, including their performance of "Shout" and Ernie Isley's tribute to Jimi Hendrix. They’ll also play clips from Ron Isley’s performance at the Hall of Fame's Music Masters event that honored Aretha Franklin.

Throughout the day, the Rock Hall will play Isley Brothers songs, and fans can compete in an interactive Isley Brothers pop-up Q&A, learn more about the group through Stories of Rock and check out the group’s signature panel in the Hall of Fame Gallery.

Band artifacts, including a drum case, the Moog Liberation synthesizer played by Chris Jasper, and a 7-inch single of "That Lady" from the personal collection of the Notorious B.I.G., a class of 2020 nominee, are currently on display.

The Isley Brothers will perform alongside fellow Inductees, the O’Jays, on Saturday at the State Theatre.
