The original Hall of Fame schedule had the organization announcing nominees in the fall, with the inductees being revealed at the beginning of the following year, and the induction taking place in April/May. Well, thanks to the pandemic that is going to change.
From now on, the nomination meetings will take place in January, with nominees announced in February, and then voting happening after that. The 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 will air Saturday on HBO. This year’s inductees include Nine Inch Nails, The Notorious B.I.G., Whitney Houston, Depeche Mode, T-Rex, and Doobie Brothers.
