Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony 2020

The rescheduled 2020 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony presented by Klipsch Audio will take place on Saturday, November 7, 2020 at Public Auditorium in Cleveland, Ohio. HBO will broadcast the show live beginning at 8 p.m. EST.

“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,” said Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson.

Following the recommendation of public health officials, the 2020 Induction Ceremony was postponed as a precaution due to COVID-19 concerns. The Ceremony was originally set to take place on May 2nd.

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.

Rock & Roll Hall of Fame to Temporarily Close to the Public

As part of an international effort to help prevent the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), we have made the decision to temporarily close our Museum to the public. At this time, we are unable to project a specific date to reopen but are monitoring all available information from CDC, Federal government, and the State of Ohio with a goal of opening as soon as it is deemed safe to do so. We are committed to keeping you informed and will be back in touch with additional information as it is available. We will continue to monitor the situation week to week

Meanwhile, we will be canceling programming and events slated and contacting those who purchased general admission tickets for this timeframe.

Given this temporary closure, we have postponed the following events:

  • Wednesday, March 18 – Spotlight: Janis Joplin
  • Wednesday, March 25 – Film Series: Linda Ronstadt
  • Friday, March 27 thru Sunday, March 29 - Stevie Nicks Fan's Weekend
  • Friday, April 3 thru Sunday, April 5 - The Cure Fan Weekend
  • Saturday, April 4 - Toddler Rock Family Day
  • Saturday, April 18 - Film Screening: Other Music
  • Wednesday, May 13 - Film Screening: Dennis and Lois
  • Wednesday, May 20 - Film Screening: ZZ Top
  • Wednesday, June 3 - Film Screening: Miles Davis, Birth of Cool
  • Wednesday, June 10 - Film Screening: John & Yoko

If you have purchased a ticket for a postponed event, we will issue a full refund and alert you via email of the opportunity to purchase when the event is rescheduled.  If you have purchased a ticket for general admission, it will be honored at our Box Office upon your future visit or refunded.

We look forward to welcoming fans back to our Museum in the near future.

Meanwhile, we encourage teachers working to create plans for distance learning to explore our free online resources that help you engage students through the power of rock & roll.  Visit Rock Hall EDU (, our new digital learning platform, to create a free account and access professionally developed lesson plans, activities, presentations, videos, playlists and other digitized primary source materials from our Library & Archives.  Our resources meet national and state learning standards in a variety of subject areas, including music, social studies, English and more.
