This year’s Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony and Induction Week festivities have been postponed until later this year.
The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame said the decision to defer the induction ceremony was taken after considering recent news regarding the coronavirus and Ohio Governor Mike DeWine’s appeal to avoid large public gatherings.
“The health and safety of our fans and visitors is our highest priority,” the Rock Hall said in a statement.
Additional details, including new dates and ticket information, will be announced shortly.
Details of the rescheduled HBO live broadcast of the event will be announced at a later date as well.
Depeche Mode, The Doobie Brothers, Whitney Houston, Nine Inch Nails, The Notorious B.I.G., and T. Rex are due to be inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame this year.
Cleveland Mayor Frank G. Jackson issued a Proclamation of Civil Emergency earlier this week with the goal of minimizing the impact, severity and duration of COVID-19 as it spreads.
