Def Leppard and Stevie Nicks among 2019 Rock Hall inductees

Def Leppard and Stevie Nicks are among the artists set to be inducted into the 2019 Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame.

The pair of rockers will be joined by fellow honorees The Cure, Janet Jackson, Radiohead, Roxy Music and The Zombies at the upcoming 34th annual Induction event.

The seven artists were chosen from a field of 15 nominees, with Nicks, Def Leppard and Roxy Music gaining entry on their first ballot consideration while Def Leppard won the Fan Ballot with more than half a million votes.
To be eligible for nomination, an individual artist or band must have released its first single or album at least 25 years prior to the year of nomination.

Ballots were sent to an international voting body of more than 1,000 artists, including current living Inductees, historians and members of the music industry. Factors such as an artist’s musical influence on other artists, length and depth of career and the body of work, innovation and superiority in style and technique are taken into consideration.

The 2019 Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame Induction Ceremony will take place at the Barclays Center in New York on March 29, 2019 and recorded for later airing by HBO, while SiriusXM will also carry a radio broadcast of the ceremony in March.

Ticket on-sale dates for the event will be announced in January.
