Rock Hall Screens Inductions for Everybody Not Going to NYC

We're guessing you're probably not springing for a trip to New York City on March 14 to watch the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induct the class of 2011 in person. So the Museum itself will be beaming the whole thing live.

For a mere $5, you can pick up a ticket to the event, which starts at 7 p.m. The Rock Hall is the only place showing the ceremony live as it happens this year. So this is your only chance to see all the, um, action as it unspools. (Fuse will show it on March 20 for the three of you who get the station.)

The induction ceremony doesn't actually start until 8:30, so that gives you 90 minutes to roam the Rock Hall, which is a pretty good deal, since it usually costs five times as much to look at Mick Jagger's pants.

The big show will be shown on a ginormous 12-foot screen on the Museum's main stage, with a bunch of smaller monitors beaming the inductions throughout the Hall.

You can also buy booze and snacks to make likely endless induction speeches by Paul Simon and Bette Midler go by a little bit faster.

Rock Hall members can buy tickets on Friday. Poor people can get them on Monday. Either way, it's way cheaper than going to the real thing. Plus, you won't have to smell David Crosby. —Michael Gallucci
