There will be no live Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction event for the Class of 2020, it was announced by the Hall on Wednesday, one of the latest major events shelved as a result of these continually frustrating times.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the event — which was already postponed from early May to November — will not be able to take place. Instead, an HBO special will air on Nov. 7 paying tribute to the Class of 2020, which includes the following:

Depeche Mode
The Doobie Brothers
Whitney Houston
Nine Inch Nails
The Notorious B.I.G.
T. Rex

Additional details, per a news release:

“To protect the health and safety of our inductees, their families, crews and our attendees, we’ve made the decision that the scheduled live event is not possible,” said John Sykes, chairman of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Foundation. “Together with HBO and executive producer Joel Gallen, we will still create an exciting program honoring our 2020 inductees, by telling the stories of their incredible contributions to music and impact on a generation of artists that followed them.”
