It kicks off on October 22 and ends with an all-star tribute concert on October 27. Performers have yet to be announced, though Berry is set to take the stage.

In a statement, the 82-year-old Berry said he is "looking forward to reelin' and rockin' in Cleveland".

Past honourees include Aretha Franklin, Janis Joplin and Woody Guthrie.
