The Sledgehammer singer was forced to bow out of an appearance with his former bandmates four years ago due to touring commitments, but after winning a solo place in the museum, alongside the likes of Cat Stevens, Kiss and Nirvana, Gabriel insists he will be there.
He tells RollingStone.com, "I will definitely go. The last time I got in, it was, like, two days before my tour started. I would have otherwise gone. I just thought, 'I can't go. We've given ourselves very little rehearsal time'. But it was a great honour."
But Gabriel fears he might not perform at the induction ceremony on 10 April (14): "Unfortunately, my bass player, Tony Levin, is committed to a prog-rock cruise the week of the event. I have to see if I can do something about that. We want to steal him for a night.
"I'll probably play, though if I do In Your Eyes, it'll take 10 minutes and that might be all the time I have."
