The event at Public Hall was sold out weeks in advance, although a few tickets were released Thursday.Opening the ceremony was Joan Jett, with support from Tommy James and Dave Grohl -- a Niles native, who played his hometown with his band, Foo Fighters, earlier in the day to celebrate Record Store Day.
