Show to Premiere on HBO in the Spring
Cleveland (Dec. 13, 2018) – The names of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame’s 2019 Inductees have been released. They are:
The 34th Annual Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony will take place on Friday, March 29, 2019 at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. The Rock Hall will unveil its 2019 Inductee exhibit at the Museum in Cleveland, Ohio in conjunction with the celebration.
Ballots were sent to an international voting body of more than 1,000 artists, including current living Inductees, historians and members of the music industry. Factors such as an artist’s musical influence on other artists, length and depth of career and the body of work, innovation and superiority in style and technique are taken into consideration.
Three of the Inductees were on the ballot for the first time, including: Def Leppard, Stevie Nicks (as a solo artist) and Roxy Music. Additionally, the top five artists, as selected by the public, comprised a “fans’ ballot” that was tallied along with the other ballots to determine the 2019 Inductees. Four of the top five artists (Def Leppard, Stevie Nicks, The Zombies and The Cure) from the fan ballot will be inducted as performers in 2019.
