The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame has announced the rescheduled date for its class of 2020 induction. The ceremony will now take place Saturday, November 7th at the Public Auditorium in Cleveland, Ohio. HBO will broadcast the ceremony live for the first time.
The induction ceremony was originally supposed to take place on May 2nd, but Rock Hall organizers postponed the event due to concerns over the coronavirus. “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,” Roll Hall of Fame President Joel Peresman said in a statement at the time.
This year’s class includes Nine Inch Nails, Depeche Mode, Whitney Houston, The Notorious B.I.G., T. Rex, and The Doobie Brothers. Additionally, music industry veterans Jon Landau and Irving Azoff will each be honored with the Ahmet Ertegun Award.
