Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Set to Air This Weekend
The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Class of 2020 will finally be inducted with an induction special set to air tomorrow night (Nov. 7) on HBO and HBO Max.
This year’s pre-taped ceremony will see the induction of The Doobie Brothers, Depeche Mode, Nine Inch Nails, The Notorious B.I.G., T. Rex and Whitney Houston, Bruce Springsteen manager and producer Jon Laundau and famed executive Irving Azoff. There will be no live performances.
In a new interview with Billboard, Joel Peresman, president and CEO of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Foundation in New York revealed that the next class eligible for induction –which is said to include Foo Fighters, Garbage, Jewel and Incubus–will be unveiled in January.
“The way we’ve done it [in the past], the nominating committee has met in September, it goes out to voting in late October, we announced the results in December, the induction ceremony has generally been in March or April,” Peresman said.
“Now, the nominating process will start in late January. We’ll announce the nominations in February. It will go out to voters and we’ll announce the nominees in the spring—probably early April.”
