The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame has confirmed the announcement schedule of the 2021 induction class.
Per Cleveland.com, CEO and president Greg Harris said the Rock Hall Nominating Committee will be meeting next week, and the 2021 nominees will be announced in February. Following the voting period, the 2021 induction class will be announced in May with the induction ceremony currently slated for October or November.
This new announcement schedule, like many other changes, is the result of the coronavirus pandemic. Back in November, President and CEO of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Foundation Joel Peresman told Vulture that due to the pandemic, the Rock Hall would be making permanent changes to their induction schedule.
