VOLUME (Ch. 106) was once again the home for a major announcement from Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, this time unveiling the 2017 inductees on Feedback! Hosts Nik Carter and Lori Majewski were joined live by Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Foundation CEO Joel Peresman for the second time this year to reveal the honorees. Be sure to keep the channel tuned to VOLUME all day as hosts will debate the artists chosen for induction and also the artists who were snubbed.
The inductees are:
Electric Light Orchestra
Award for Musical Excellence:
SiriusXM will broadcast the 32nd Annual Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony, which takes place in April 2017 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn on Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Radio (Ch. 310).

Ticket on-sale dates will be announced in January. A limited number of pre-sale tickets will be available for Rock & Roll Hall of Fame members in advance of the public sale date. To be eligible for the member pre-sale, you must be an active Rock & Roll Hall of Fame member by December 31, 2016.

The special exhibition on the 2017 Inductees will open at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland on March 30.
Artists are eligible for inclusion in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame 25 years after the release of their first recording. The 2017 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Performer Inductees were chosen by more than 900 voters of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Foundation, as well as the aggregate results of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame’s online fan vote. The top five artists from the fan vote comprised the fans’ ballot that was tallied along with the other ballots to determine the 2017 Inductees. Four of the groups from fans’ ballot (Electric Light Orchestra, Journey, Pearl Jam, and YES) will be inducted as performers in 2017.
