Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame 2020 Induction Has Been Canceled

After previously being postponed to November, the 2020 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony has been canceled.

This year’s inductees include 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 have been honored with the Ahmet Ertegun Award.

Instead of the ceremony, the Rock Hall plans to air a pre-recorded special honoring the inductees and looking at their impact on music. The special airs on HBO Saturday, November 7th.

“To protect the health and safety of our Inductees, their families, crews and our attendees, we’ve made the decision that the scheduled live event is not possible,” said John Sykes, Chairman of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Foundation. “Together with HBO and executive producer Joel Gallen, we will still create an exciting program honoring our 2020 inductees, by telling the stories of their incredible contributions to music and impact on a generation of artists that followed them.”

In addition, organizers have also announced that the 2021 induction ceremony will move to the fall and take place in Cleveland.
