The 34th annual induction ceremony for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame takes place in March.
The 34th Annual Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony is to take place on March 29th 2019 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. Stevie Nicks, Roxy Music, Def Leppard, and The Zombies will be joining the trio to complete the annual seven names who are granted entry into the Hall of Fame.
The unfortunate nominees who missed out this year are Rage Against the Machine, Kraftwerk, MC5, Rufus & Chaka Khan, LL Cool J, Devo, Todd Rundgren, and John Prine.
They performed 'Let's Go To Bed' over the weekend.
Those lucky enough to be attending the 25th annual Meltdown Festival this month, with the 2018 edition being curated by The Cure's Robert Smith, may have managed to catch an extra special set by Placebo. They performed a stunning rendition of 'Let's Go To Bed', and it was the most perfect tribute.

The London rockers hit the Southbank Centre on Saturday (June 16th 2018) for a set at Robert Smith's Meltdown Festival, having been friends of The Cure frontman for many years now. They played 'Let's Go To Bed'; a non-album single released in 1982 which was originally recorded for The Cure's 'Pornography' album sessions.

Brandon Flowers' brother has been encouraging him to revisit The Killers' new single 'Run For Cover' for years.
Brandon Flowers' brother has been encouraging him to record 'Run For Cover' for years.
The Killers frontman first penned the track - which is about the story of a senator who mistreats his wife - in 2008 when the group were recording their third album 'Day & Age' but he wasn't satisfied with his efforts and set it aside.
He admitted: ''I was never happy with the second verse -- so we put it on the backburner.''

The album is the follow-up to 2008's 4:13 Dream, though the tracks were also recorded six years ago - Smith says he should have stuck to his guns and released a double album.

What can we expect from another double weekend at Austin City Limits Festival?
Austin City Limits Music Festival is set to hit Texas for its twelfth year, bringing with it two weekends of fabulous live music and family fun.
The festival organisers first decided to spread the fun out over two weekends last year, in a bid to welcome yet more people into this unique world, and it appears that they haven't gone back on their word as they are set to return to Zilker Park on October 4th - 6th and 11th - 13th. This year sees some impressive headline acts including Depeche Mode, The Cure, Muse and Kings Of Leon - and if that wasn't exciting enough, Atoms For Peace, Lionel Richie, Phoenix and Wilco are also high up on this year's bill! Some of the other acts scattered around are just as jaw-droppingly impressive, not to mention extremely diverse. We have Californian rockers Queens Of The Stone Age, country star Hank Williams Jr.'s daughter Holly Williams, Compton rapper Kendrick Lamar, LA sisters Haim, alt-folk group Thao & The Get Down Stay Down Nottingham singer Jake Bugg and legendary 'Gay Bar' hitmakers Electric Six.
Blues veteran Dr John joins The Cure, Pearl Jam and Nine Inch Nails for the 14th annual Voodoo Music Festival.
New Orleans' favourite Halloween festival the Voodoo Music & Arts Experience is back in its fourteenth year bringing you the true meaning of rock 'n' roll plus a special appearance from one of the city's favourite music veterans.
Voodoo Fest hits City Park every year on the weekend closest to Halloween which this year is November 1st - 3rd. It made its debut in 1999 with the likes of Wyclef Jean and the Refugee All-Stars, The Roots and, of course, New Orleans' own blues pioneer Dr. John - aka The Night Tripper - who makes a grand return to the event this year only months after landing his sixth Grammy award for his album 'Locked Down'. Long may he remain the epitome of the city's spectacular music scene!

Phoenix's Lollapalooza set proved the band's recent success isn't just a fluke.
As Thomas Mars – the lead singer of Phoenix – explained, "Usually on Sunday night people are really tired.” He was talking about festivals, and he was right, bit he and his band had something planned. "This," he said as the catchy into to 1901 began behind him, "is something different."
Tired crowd or not, the band rocked the final night of Lollapalooza.
So blistering was their closing set, that Rolling Stone have called it “the best performance of the entire weekend.” And this on a record weekend - 300,000 people descended upon Grant Park for the three-day festival, which featured eight stages and 130 acts.
