For band frontman Dave Grohl, it will be his second induction into the Rock Hall of Fame. He previously entered the Hall as a member of Nirvana in 2014. 

Both Nirvana and the Foo Fighters earned induction honors in their first years of eligibility. 

The Foo Fighters and other inductees will be honored Saturday night at Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse. 

For those who were unable to secure tickets to the Foo Fighters concert, there are other events this weekend to celebrate the inductees. 

On Friday at noon, 2021 inductees The Go-Go’s will participate in an interview on the PNC Stage outside of the museum. After taking questions, the band will participate in a book signing. Only merchandise purchased on site will be permitted to be autographed. 

Then, Friday at 3 p.m., the Rock Hall will unveil the 2021 inductee signature panel with special guests from the Class of 2021. The signature panel is part of the inductee exhibit on the third floor of the Rock Hall. 

Tickets for both events are free and available online. The tickets do not include admission into the museum.
