ROCK AND ROLL HALL OF FAME FOUNDATION President JOEL PERESMAN said, “This year’s Hall of Fame Inductees really capture the passion of the fans. We’re thrilled to again be able to have the fans be a part of the show, especially as we bring the ceremony to BARCLAYS CENTER and partner again with HBO and PLAYTONE.”
