The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum is the nonprofit organization that exists to educate visitors, fans and scholars from around the world about the history and continuing significance of rock and roll music. It carries out this mission both through its operation of a world-class museum designed by I.M. Pei in Cleveland, Ohio that collects, preserves, exhibits and interprets this art form and through its library and archives as well as educational programs.

The executive producer of THE 25TH ANNIVERSARY ROCK AND ROLL HALL OF FAME CONCERT is Jann Wenner; executive producers for Playtone, Tom Hanks and Gary Goetzman; directed and produced by Joel Gallen; executive producer, Joel Peresman; special advisor, Robbie Robertson; creative consultant, Cameron Crowe.
