Rock Hall Grand Opening and Concert Collection

On September 1, 1995, the Concert for the Rock Hall was held at the Cleveland Municipal Stadium featuring some of the Hall of Fame's first Inductees like Chuck Berry and Aretha Franklin. The next day September 2, 1995, the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame opened its doors and welcomed its first fans.

Use this collection to teach students about how the Rock Hall came to be with the History of the Rock Hall PowerPoint. Watch a performance of "Johnny B. Goode" by Chuck Berry (the first performer inducted to the Rock Hall) and future Inductees Bruce Springsteen & the E Street band, to get the front row experience at the Concert for the Rock Hall. The Aretha Franklin PowerPoint gives students a brief look at who Aretha Franklin was, most notably the first woman inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.
