The 2020 Rock Hall induction ceremonies will still happen in 2020, just at the very tail end of it.
After announcing in March that the May 2nd induction ceremony would be postponed until later in the year because of the coronavirus pandemic, the Rock Hall today, via HBO, announced that the rescheduled date for the ceremony at Cleveland's Public Auditorium will be Nov. 7 at 8 p.m.
HBO will be broadcasting the festivities live for the first time in induction history.
“Important cultural events like the Induction Ceremony are what make Cleveland strong. The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame is a great asset for our State and Induction Week provides a significant economic benefit to our region,” Mayor Frank Jackson said in a statement.
Per the press release:
Tickets for the original date will be honored. Fans do not need to exchange their tickets. Those who cannot attend the rescheduled date can refund their tickets by accessing their Ticketmaster account.
