The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame will include a tribute to Eddie Van Halen as part of its 2020 Induction Ceremony Special. The tribute will be part of the show, set to air at 7 p.m., Nov. 7 on HBO and HBO Max.

The Eddie Van Halen tribute is part of the Rock Hall special’s in memoriam section, which also honors other rock and roll legends who have died over the past year and a half. That list includes Little Richard, Neil Peart, Ric Ocasek, Ginger Baker and several others.

The 2020 Induction Ceremony Special will celebrate the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame’s Class of 2020: Depeche Mode, The Doobie Brothers, Whitney Houston, Nine Inch Nails, The Notorious B.I.G., T-Rex, and Ahmet Ertegun Award honorees Jon Landau and Irving Azoff. This year’s ceremony was originally set to take place at Cleveland’s Public Hall on May 2. The event was then postponed until November due to the coronavirus pandemic before being turned into a pre-taped special. The 2021 inductions are scheduled for next November in Cleveland.
