The Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame has announced they are canceling their live ceremony for this year’s inductees.
According to a report from Loudwire, due to the conditions around the country with the COVID-19 pandemic, the organizers of The Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame will forgo this year’s live ceremony. Instead, the producers of the show and HBO will present an “exciting program that will honor our 2020 inductees, by telling the stories of their contributions to music and impact on a generation of artists that followed them.”
The Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame cite the health and safety of their inductees, their families, their crews, and attendees as their reason for canceling the live ceremony and not moving forward with the original live show as was planned.
The new program that will feature the stories and the impact of this year’s inductees will still be presented on HBO and streaming on HBO Max beginning November 7th at 7 pm central time. See the full release below from The Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame’s official Facebook page posted on Wednesday (7/8/20).
The 2020 Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame inductees include Nine Inch Nails, T-Rex, the Doobie Brothers, Depeche Mode, Whitney Houston, the Notorious B.I.G. and the Ahmet Ertegun Award honorees Jon Landau and Irving Azoff.
