The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame today (Dec. 13) announced the artists who will be entering the Hall in 2019.
The Rock Hall's class of 2019 will feature The Cure, Def Leppard, Janet Jackson, Stevie Nicks, Radiohead, Roxy Music and The Zombies.
In October, the Rock Hall announced its short-list of artists in the running for induction in 2019. Northern Ohio pioneers Devo were joined on that list by Kraftwerk, LL Cool J, MC5, Rage Against the Machine, Rufus & Chaka Khan, John Prine and Todd Rundgren. All will now have to wait until 2020 for consideration.
It was the first time Def Leppard, Roxy Music and (as a solo act) Stevie Nicks appeared on a Rock Hall ballot; the rest had been in the running in previous years.
Nicks is the first woman to be inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame twice; she, of course, went in as a member of Fleetwood Mac in 1998. She follows multiple inductees like Paul McCartney, Lou Reed, Peter Gabriel and Eric Clapton.
The 2019 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony takes place March 29, 2019 at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y.
