CLEVELAND- Great news for Northeast Ohio. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Inductions will be taking place in Cleveland every other year beginning in 2018.
In the past, Cleveland would host the ceremony every three years. Greg Harris, President & CEO Rock Roll Hall of Fame said in a statement, "The change is a direct result of the momentum of the Rock Hall, the success of past ceremonies held here and the support of community."
Harris said the 2009 inductions were the first time the event was open to the public, in 2012 the ceremony was broadcast on HBO for the first time and in 2015 legends Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, Stevie Wonder, Joan Jett and Green Day all performed on the same stage in Cleveland.
Harris said, "Our mission to engage, teach and inspire fans and artists through the power of rock and roll has generated hard, tangible results and those results and confidence of the community has led to our commitment to bring the Inductions to Cleveland every other year. We’ll share more information as 2018 draws closer."
