The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame has announced the inductees for 2016 and they are Cheap Trick, Chicago, Deep Purple, N.W.A., and Steve Miller. Eligibility for inclusion into the Hall of Fame requires 25 years since the release of an artist’s first recording. The inductees are selected by more than 800 voters of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Foundation, as well as the aggregate results of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame’s online fan vote.
The 31st Annual Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony, presented by Klipsch Audio, will take place on Friday, April 8, 2016 at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York for the second time. HBO will broadcast the ceremony in spring 2016.
The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, Ohio, will also open a special exhibit on the 2016 Inductees in conjunction with the 2016 Induction Ceremony. What do you think of the 5 inductees in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame 2016 announcement? Any missing artists you think deserve it more?
