Downtown Cleveland rocks as first concerts of Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction weekend gets underway

The Foo-Fighters and Bone Thugs-N-Harmony rocked venues Thursday night; Fans arrived from around the country.

CLEVELAND — While the 2021 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction isn't until Saturday, Cleveland is still getting into the rockin' spirit!

“I'm ready to turn up,” Northeast Ohioan Chuck Sims said at the Bone Thugs-N-Harmony concert Thursday night. 

“I requested some time off to party so that's what we're here for,” Cynthia Cercone, another concertgoer, said.

Lights flashed, crowds showed out, and talent took center stage Thursday night as the excitement got underway.

“You get rock music, rap music all the different groups,” Mason Hauserman, who was present for the show, said.

Just a few streets over, the House of Blues filled with Foo Fighters fans from all over the country. The band performed just two days before being inducted into the Hall of Fame, selling out the concert in two hours.

“We're from Boston actually,” said Paul Smith. 

“I’m from the Poconos, from Pennsylvania,” Rachelle Olson said.

“We're here from Northern New Jersey,” said Debra Schafer. 

Bone Thugs-N-Harmony returned to Cleveland, performing and lighting up Tower City’s Sunlight Concourse.

“It's so crazy, my first time ever listening to Bones, I was going to school coming through here,” Sims said. “This is beyond special.”

The busy weekend will pack more than just music and fun; the Halloween spirit took to the streets for extra rock and roll excitement.

Downtown is the heart of where all the fun will happen.
