Foo Fighters are likely to go into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame later this year, possibly with Rage Against The Machine and Iron Maiden, but it will have to wait. The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame induction ceremony will return to Cleveland, Ohio on October 30, 2021, and for the first time, will be held at Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse.
The recently transformed FieldHouse provides a new and truly world-class venue that prioritizes health and safety and offers increased space and flexibility to host the induction ceremony in Cleveland as part of a multi-year partnership.
An internationally celebrated museum and attraction, the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame generates an estimated $36.5 million impact to the Cleveland economy when the city hosts the induction ceremony (report by Tourism Economics). Additionally, Rock Hall visitors to Cuyahoga County play a significant role in northeast Ohio’s economy, driving $199 million of impact annually.
Fans can vote for their favorite nominees now through April 30, 2021 at vote.rockhall.com. The top five artists, as selected by the public, will comprise a “fans’ ballot” that will be tallied along with the other ballots to select the 2021 inductees will be honored on October 30, 2021 at Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse. Inductees will be announced in May 2021.
The Rock Hall is open daily with advance tickets required at rockhall.com. Plan your visit now and experience the Hall Of Fame gallery and 2020 inductee exhibit.
John Sykes, chairman of Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame Foundation, said: “We are excited to welcome the 2021 class of inductees into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame this year in Cleveland, the home of our Museum. The ceremony recognizes these inductees’ influence on generations of artists to follow and their impact on sound of youth culture.”
Greg Harris, president and CEO of Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame And Museum, said: “We are honored to again host the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame induction ceremony in Cleveland, this year at the newly renovated Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse, and to serve as the place for rock and roll fans around the world to connect and celebrate our inductees all year long.”
