CLEVELAND  — The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame’s annual induction ceremony, which was scheduled to take place in Cleveland on May 2, has been rescheduled for Nov. 7.

“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 Mayor Frank Jackson.

The 2020 Induction class includes Nine Inch Nails, Depeche Mode, the Doobie Brothers, Whitney Houston, T-Rex and the Notorious B.I.G.

Tickets for the original date will be honored.

The postponement is due to coronavirus concerns.

As of Thursday, there have been 564 confirmed cases in Ohio, with eight deaths.
