be a part of the show, especially as we bring the ceremony to Barclays Center
and partner again with HBO and Playtone.”
“Brooklyn has always been a hotbed for rock and roll and
we’re proud to continue that tradition by hosting the Rock and Roll Hall of
Fame Induction Ceremony,” said Barclays Center CEO Brett Yormark. “Barclays
Center has hosted many of the world’s biggest artists and we are looking
forward to welcoming the new Inductees into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as
we celebrate for the first time ever in Brooklyn.”

For this year’s Inductions, the
Rock and Roll Hall of Fame again offered fans the opportunity to officially
participate in the selection process. The public was able to cast votes online for
who they believe to be most deserving of induction into the Rock and Roll Hall
of Fame. The top five artists, as selected by the public, comprised a “fans’
ballot” that was tallied along with the other ballots to choose the 2014 Inductees.
Three of the top five artists from the fans ballot will be inducted in 2014.
The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum in Cleveland, Ohio, will also
open a special exhibit on the 2014 Inductees in conjunction with the 2014
Induction Ceremony. The Museum is a nonprofit organization that tells the story
of rock and roll’s cultural influence through its exhibits, public events,
educational programs and a world-class Library and Archives.
