Several festivals and events have been postponed due to the recent coronavirus outbreak, including the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame's Induction Ceremony.


The same way no one predicted the happening of the COVID-19 pandemic, no one can foresee when it is all going to end. Hence, several events have decided to put safety before all else and postpone the dates.


Today's living situation is far from normal as everyone fights to curb the spread of the deadly COVID-19. In line with the protocols and precautions, management postponed the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Induction.

The announcement was made through Instagram, with a set rescheduled date included. The post read: "Induction Ceremony will take place on November 7th."


Although the set date is months from its original schedule in May, there is no guarantee that the pandemic will have been over by then. The organization said in a statement:

"The health and safety of our fans and visitors is our highest priority."

Included in their statement was the guideline of Ohio Governor Mike DeWine to refrain from having public gatherings amid the outbreak.


The Frenchman was the first NBA player to contract COVID-19, paving the way for Commissioner Adam Silver to suspend the rest of the season.


Initially, the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony was to happen on May 2 at the Public Auditorium, Cleveland, with a live broadcast on HBO.

Whitney Houston, T-Rex, Depeche Mode, Nine Inch Nails, the Doobie Brothers, and The Notorious B.I.G. are among this year's set of inductees.

The process of choosing artists includes sending names of nominees to an international voting body composed of over 1,000 artists, historians, and members of the industry.

Jon Landau, a manager, record producer, and music critic, and entertainment executive Irving Azoff are recipients of the Ahmet Ertegun Award.



The COVID-19 is a fatal disease that has infected thousands of people from all walks of life, including the wealthy, famous, and healthy.

Among those who contaminated the virus is Utah Jazz basketball player Rudy Gobert. The athlete shared some of the things he felt under the sickness, including loss of sense of smell and taste.
