LOS ANGELES, Dec. 11 (UPI) -- Heart, Albert King, Randy Newman, Public Enemy, Rush and Donna Summer will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame during a Los Angeles ceremony.

The inductees were announced Tuesday.

Also to be honored at the April 18 event at the Nokia Theatre L.A. LIVE are Lou Adler and Quincy Jones.

This marks the first time since 1993 that the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony will be held on the West Coast. The ceremony will again be open to the public, as it was in 2009 and 2012 in Cleveland, where the hall has been located since it was established in 1983.

"We are thrilled to announce this year's class of inductees, which again represents the broad, compelling and significant definition of rock and roll," Joel Peresman, president and chief executive officer of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Foundation, said in a statement.

The induction ceremony will broadcast on HBO May 18.
