Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea, inducted with the hall's last class, announced the awards Dec. 11 at the Nokia Theater where the induction ceremony will be held next year. It is the first time in 20 years since the festivities have been held in L.A.; it will again be open to the public and aired on HBO on May 18.
"I love halls of fame," Flea said at the ceremony on Tuesday. "I love to pay homage to people who work in the arts, academics or sports. If these people feel as remotely as honored as I did, it's a beautiful thing."
