The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame’s induction ceremony for 2020 has been moved to November 7.
The said event was supposed to happen on May 2 but was later postponed due to the growing threat of the coronavirus pandemic. The Hall of Fame induction ceremony is just one of the many rock-related events to be affected by the pandemic.
Rock & Roll Hall of Fame President Joel Peresman said in a statement, “We are very disappointed to announce the postponement of this year’s Rock & Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony. Our first concern is to the health and safety of our attendees and artists and we are complying to the direction of the local and state authorities and common sense.”
The ceremony is set to be held at Cleveland’s Public Auditorium at 8 PM ET and will have a live broadcast on HBO. Rock Hall performers, presenters, and guests have yet to be announced. Neophytes to the Hall for this year include the Doobie Brothers, T-Rex, Nine Inch Nails, Depeche Mode, and Whitney Houston. Notorious B.I.G. managers Jon Landau and Irving Azoff will also be given the Ahmet Ertegun Award, an honor given to non-performers who have had prolific influence over the growth of rock music.
