CLEVELAND, OH, February 20, 2014 – We’re passing along the following information released to us this morning by the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame:
“Today, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame announces ticketing information for the 29th Annual Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony. The 2014 Ceremony will take place on Thursday, April 10, 2014 at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, and will again be open to the public, as it has been for the Induction Ceremonies in Cleveland (2009, 2012) and Los Angeles (2013). This will be the first time that the ceremony will be open to the public in New York.
“The ceremony will honor this year’s recently announced Inductees: Peter Gabriel, Daryl Hall and John Oates, KISS, Nirvana, Linda Ronstadt and Cat Stevens; as well as Ahmet Ertegun Award for Lifetime Achievement Inductees Brian Epstein and Andrew Loog Oldham; and Award for Musical Excellence Inductee The E Street Band. Details about performances, presenters and special guests will be announced at a later date. The Induction Ceremony will premiere on HBO in May.
“The 2014 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Performer Inductees were chosen by more than 700 voters of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Foundation. Artists are eligible for inclusion in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame 25 years after the release of their first recording.
“For this year’s Inductions, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame again offered fans the opportunity to officially participate in the selection process. The public was able to cast votes online for who they believe to be most deserving of induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The top five artists, as selected by the public, comprised a ‘fans’ ballot’ that was tallied along with the other ballots to choose the 2014 Inductees. Three of the top five artists from the fans ballot will be inducted in 2014.”
