Other than in Gucci ads, we haven’t seen a lot of Harry Styles lately — but on April 27, you’ll be able to see him on HBO, inducting legendary Fleetwood Mac frontwoman Stevie Nicks into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
During the March 29 ceremony, which is being taped at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY, Stevie will become the first woman ever to be inducted into the Rock Hall twice. She previously was honored as a member of Fleetwood Mac; now she’s going in as a solo artist.
As for why Harry will do the honors, if you’re a fan, you probably know that Harry’s a massive fan of Stevie’s, and of Fleetwood Mac’s. He’s called Stevie “The Queen of Everything,” and famously showed up to a Fleetwood Mac gig with a carrot cake just for her.
Harry’s also cited Fleetwood Mac as a massive influence on his self-titled solo debut album, and sang onstage with the band when they were given the MusiCares Person of the Year award in 2018.
As for Stevie, she recently described Harry as “the son I never had,” telling Rolling Stone, “I adopted him. I love Harry.”
Meanwhile, Grammy-nominated R&B star Janelle Monáe will induct Janet Jackson into the Hall during the same ceremony. Other acts who are being inducted this year: Def Leppard, Radiohead, The Cure, British art-rockers Roxy Music and British Invasion greats The Zombies.
You’ll be able to watch the red carpet arrivals at RockHall.com, as well on the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame’s YouTube channel and Facebook page. The HBO special featuring highlights from the ceremony will premiere on Saturday, April 27 at 8 p.m. ET.
