American stadium rockers Bon Jovi and soul legend James Brown will be inducted into the U.K. Music Hall of Fame on Nov. 14. Both acts are expected to perform at the ceremony, which will be held for the second successive year at London's Alexandra Palace.

Other inductees already named for this year's event are Brian Wilson, Dusty Springfield, Led Zeppelin and Rod Stewart.

These artists will join Beatles producer Sir George Martin, who this year will be lauded with honorary membership in recognition of his exceptional contribution to British music.

Inductees for the 2006 ceremony are selected by a steering group, which consists of more than 60 artists, journalists, broadcasters and industry executives.

A delayed broadcast of the gala, which is now in its third year, will air Nov. 14 on BBC Radio 2, and U.K. terrestrial TV broadcaster Channel 4 will beam the event Nov. 16. U.S. audiences can catch the ceremony Nov. 25 on VH1.

The event is produced by Endemol's U.K. TV production division Initial for Channel 4.
