The Rock & Roll Hall of Frame was scheduled to hold its 35th annual induction ceremony on May 2 at Cleveland's Public Auditorium, but like numerous other events, including concerts, tour, and festivals, it's been postponed because of the coronavirus pandemic, Rolling Stone reports. "We are very disappointed to announce the postponement of this year’s Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony," president Joel Peresman said in a statement. "Our first concern is to the health and safety of our attendees and artists and we are complying to the direction of the local and state authorities and common sense. We look forward to rescheduling the ceremony and will make that announcement at the earliest convenience."
Depeche Mode, Nine Inch Nails, The Notorious B.I.G., T. Rex, Whitney Houston and The Doobie Brothers are the 2020 inductees, while Motorhead, Soundgarden, Dave Matthews Band, Thin Lizzy, MC5, Kraftwerk, Judas Priest, Rufus with Chaka Khan, Todd Rundgren, and Pat Benatar were all nominees who didn't make it in this year.
