The 2020 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction ceremony will take place virtually this weekend, after being postponed due to the pandemic. The Rock Hall has announced that the schedule switch is going to be permanent.
The original Hall of Fame schedule had nominees announced in the falll, with the inductees being revealed at the beginning of the following year, and the induction taking place in April or May. That is all going to change now.
"We moved the timing of the ceremony,” Joel Peresman, president and CEO of the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame Foundation, said. “We’re going to move the ceremony permanently so it’s in the fall of each year because of COVID.”
Nomination meetings will permanently take place in January, with nominees announced in February, and then voting happening after that. The current hope is to have next year’s ceremony take place in the fall.
·A pre-recorded 2020 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony is set to air Saturday on HBO. This year’s inductees include Nine Inch Nails, The Notorious B.I.G., Whitney Houston, Depeche Mode, T-Rex and The Doobie Brothers.
