Red carpet arrivals and interviews will be streamed live on the Rock Hall's Website, Facebook and YouTube channel. It starts at 5:30 PM eastern.

The Hall will post live updates, photos, and videos on this page

Putting this up early as I might not have time tonight or in the morning. I'll be at the event and hope to provide as much info as I can, signal willing. But the blog won't be updated until I get home, so please follow along on Twitter.

Here's the info we know at the time of this posting:

Who's inducting them? Trent Reznor.

Are The Cure attending? Yes! While the band haven't confirmed it, the Hall has. We just don't know how many of the 10 will go.

Which Cures are confirmed to be attending? Lol, Roger, Simon, Robert, Jason, Reeves, Perry, Pearl. And there will likely be other ex Cures, too

Are The Cure playing? We assume so, and I've been led to believe they will, but again, no confirmation from the band or the Hall. Update: Yes, they are playing!

How long are they playing? Bands are usually given a 3-4 song set, so expect that.
Update: They did 5 songs at soundcheck, so maybe they get a 5 song set?

What will they play? This is an easy one...Cold, Charlotte Sometimes, Last Dance, and Faith. You know what they say, if you're going to dream, dream dark. :)

Where can I watch? Live at Barclays Center, or the live simulcast at the Rock Hall in Cleveland, or the edited highlights on HBO April 27th. There's no official live stream, though there might be fan scopes and streams.

The Cure play Paleo Festival on July 25th
