(CLEVELAND, OH) -- The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame has announced that the 36th Annual Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony returns 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.
“We are honored to again host the Rock & 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 & roll fans around the world to connect and celebrate our Inductees all year long,” added Greg Harris, President & CEO, Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and Museum.
An internationally celebrated museum and attraction, the Rock & 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.
Representing the diverse genre of rock & roll, this year’s Nominees include Mary J. Blige, Kate Bush, Devo, Foo Fighters, The Go-Go’s, Iron Maiden, JAY-Z, Chaka Khan, Carole King, Fela Kuti, LL Cool J, New York Dolls, Rage Against the Machine, Todd Rundgren, Tina Turner, and Dionne Warwick.
"We are excited to welcome the 2021 class of Inductees into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame this year in Cleveland, the home of our Museum," said John Sykes, Chairman, Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Foundation. "The ceremony recognizes these Inductees’ influence on generations of artists to follow and their impact on sound of youth culture."
