Rock Hall Snubs Cleveland ... Again

In yet another fuck-you to Clevelanders, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame has scheduled a 25th anniversary concert for itself ... in New York.

The two-night concert — scheduled for October 29 and 30 at Madison Square Garden — stars heavyweights (and inductees) like Bruce Springsteen, Stevie Wonder, Simon & Garfunkel, U2, Aretha Franklin, Eric Clapton and Metallica.

So yeah, even though Cleveland has been home to the actual Rock Hall for the past quarter century and has put up with some shitty exhibits over the years, we're rewarded for our loyalty by having them throw one of their best bashes out of town.

Then again, since the city has hosted a mere two induction ceremonies in that time, this news about the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Concerts shouldn't come as that much of a surprise. Still, it stings.

So, OK, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, we accept your "fuck you" and send a double dose back to you. —Michael Gallucci
