The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame will once again honor talents that influenced the music industry. Pearl Jam, Tupac Shakur, Journey, Yes, Electric Light Orchestra and Joan Baez will join the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees in 2017.

People reported that the 2017 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction is scheduled to be held on April 7, 2017 at the Brooklyn's Barclays Center, where some of the inductees and other artists can properly celebrate the honor that will be bestowed on them. The 2017 induction will be the 32th ceremony for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees for 2017 have contributed to the industry: Joan Baez as an iconic folk singer-songwriter, Yes as a progressive rock prototypes, Electric Light Orchestra as '70s classical crossovers, Tupac as a popular and influential rapper and Pearl Jam as grunge divinities.

RollingStone also reported that the American rock band Journey is among the 2017 inductees for Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Chic's Nile Rodgers will receive the Award For Musical Excellence. Artists can be a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee 25 years after they launched their first album or single, although there is no certainty about who will be honored.

Gordon Matthew Thomas Sumner, who is widely known as Sting, was one of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees, according to a previous Jobs & Hire report. Sting is a celebrated singer-songwriter who rose to fame following the release of his hit single "The King of Pain."

Fans can buy tickets to personally witness the ceremony, although the ticket details have not been announced yet. The ceremony will also be aired on HBO and broadcasted on SiriusXM.
