Thu, 17 Dec 2015 13:30:24
The 31st Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony will be held April 8, 2016, taking place at Brooklyn's Barclays Center for the second time.
Performers and bands including Janet Jackson, Chaka Khan, The Smiths, and Chic were also nominated. Eligibility for inclusion requires at least 25 years between nomination and the release of their first recording. According to a statement issued by the foundation, inductees were "chosen by more than 800 voters of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Foundation, as well as the aggregate results of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's online fan vote. The top five artists, as selected by the public, comprised a "fans' ballot" that was tallied along with the other ballots to determine the 2016 Inductees. Three of the top five artists from the fans ballot will be inducted in 2016."
The inductees join 312 other Hall of Fame legends.
