This year’s Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame induction ceremony will be broadcast as a HBO special in November, organisers have confirmed.
Latest inductees such as Nine Inch Nails and Depeche Mode will have to wait until November 7th for their moment in the spotlight, though a live event won’t be taking place at all. The 2021 edition is also now planned to take place much later in the year than normal, when the ceremony will also move to the Hall Of Fame’s homebase in Cleveland, Ohio.
“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,” John Sykes, chairman of the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame Foundation, said in a statement.
“Together with HBO and executive producer Joel Gallen, we will still create an exciting program honuoring our 2020 inductees, by telling the stories of their incredible contributions to music and impact on a generation of artists that followed them.”
