Now that Brooklyn’s Barclays Center has become the go-to event venue, given its success with the MTV VMAs, it may have been a no-brainer choice for the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame’s 2014 Induction Ceremony. With this year’s line-up of inductees, presenters, and performers, the Rock Hall is ready for an explosive event at the still fairly new arena. This year, Nirvana, Linda Ronstadt, KISS, Peter Gabriel, Hall and Oates, Cat Stevens, and the E Street Band all receive their due and are honored with tributes from the likes of Bonnie Raitt and Stevie Nicks for Ronstadt, and speeches from presenters Tom Morello, Questlove, and Michael Stipe for KISS, Hall and Oates, and Nirvana, respectively.
