Everly Brothers tribute planned

The Everly Brothers will be honoured at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame

The Everly Brothers are to be honoured with a tribute concert at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Surviving member Don Everly will appear at the event at PlayhouseSquare's State Theatre in Cleveland, in the US, on October 25.

Phil Everly died from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease earlier this year.

His older brother said in a statement that he wished "Phil were here to share this honour".

Don also thanked the Rock Hall and the duo's fans "for keeping the Everly Brothers alive".

Singer Rodney Crowell will work as the musical director for the concert, which will take place during the Rock Hall's 19th annual Music Masters series. Performers will be announced at a later date.

The Everly Brothers were inducted into the Rock Hall in 1986 and into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2001.
