Despite canceling last night's show in Kansas City, Missouri, due to the death of his assistant road manager/cousin, Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band will take the stage Thursday night at New York's Madison Square Garden as part of the historic duo of concerts celebrating the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's 25th anniversary.

Meet this year's potential Hall of Fame inductees in classic photos.

On October 29th, Springsteen will share the spotlight with Tom Morello and John Fogerty. The bill also inclues Stevie Wonder with B.B King and John Legend, Simon & Garfunkel, and Crosby, Stills and Nash. The next day's lineup boasts U2, Aretha Franklin (with Lenny Kravitz and Annie Lennox) and Metallica joined by Ozzy Osbourne. Plus, Jeff Beck will be stepping in for Eric Clapton, who had to cancel his set due to minor surgery.

“Vans”

The Pack | 2006

Berkeley, California rappers the Pack made their footwear choice clear in 2006 with the song "Vans." The track caught the attention of Too $hort, who signed them to his imprint. MTV refused to play the video for the song, though, claiming it was essentially a commercial for the product. Rapper Lil' B disagreed. "I didn’t know nobody [at] Vans," he said. "I was just a rapper who wore Vans." Even without MTV's support, Lil' B recognized the impact of the track. "God blessed me with such a revolutionary song… People around my age know who really started a lot of the dressing people are into now."
