The Rock N Roll Hall of Fame was going to induct Nine Inch Nails, Depeche Mode, Notorious B.I.G., Whitney Houston, T. Rex, and the Doobie Brothers as part of this year’s class at a ceremony in May. Now, it’s not happening at all.

After originally pushing the ceremony to November, the Rock Hall has canceled this year’s live event, which was supposed to take place in Cleveland, due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

In its place, the Rock Hall is going to air a special about the inductees on Nov. 7. You’ll be able to see it on HBO and HBO Max.

In March, the museum had to temporarily close its doors due to COVID-19 but has since reopened. The Rock Hall has since shared a bunch of videos on its YouTube page.
