At the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony this fall, which will be televised live for the first time, performances by Elton John, Brandi Carlile, Dave Matthews, H.E.R., Chris Stapleton, St. Vincent, and New Edition are scheduled.
On Nov. 3, the ceremony will be broadcast live on Disney+ and streamed later. On January 1, ABC will broadcast a special with performance highlights and notable moments.
Rob Mills, an executive vice president for Walt Disney Television, said in a statement that “the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony has been the home to some of the most memorable moments in music history and celebrates the immeasurable impact these artists have had on the industry and culture.” We are ecstatic to give viewers a front-row seat.
This year’s inductees are Missy Elliott, the late George Michael, Willie Nelson, Sheryl Crow, Chaka Khan, “Soul Train” originator Don Cornelius, and Chaka Khan.
The Spinners, Rage Against the Machine, DJ Kool Herc, Link Wray, Al Kooper, and Bernie Taupin, a frequent collaborator with Elton John, were also part of the Cleveland-based institution.
The Barclays Center in New York City will host the induction ceremony.
More over 1,000 musicians, historians, and members of the music industry cast votes for the nominees. The top five artists chosen by the public comprised a “fans’ ballot” that was combined with the expert votes after fans could vote online or in person at the museum.
