Bon Jovi To Reunite For Rock Hall Induction
Bon Jovi are set to reunite with all of their original bandmates for their induction into the Rock and Roll Half Of Fame in April.
Jon Bon Jovi, drummer Tico Torres, and keyboardist David Bryan will be joined by Alec John Such and Richie Sambora onstage for the ceremony and a special performance. It will be the first time, except for a one-off performance in 2001, that Such has performed with the band since his departure in 1994, and will be Sambora’s first since he left in 2013.
“We took that journey together at certain times as a group, and I think it’s wonderful we can re-enact that — not only for us, but for the fans. I think when you get together with old friends, there’s always going to be some deep emotions within that,” Torres told Billboard.
Bryan added: "It's a wonderful club to be in, from Elvis and the Beatles and the Stones, and you feel like it's definitely a club to be in. It's a great honour.”
Bon Jovi recently released “When We Were Us,” which Bryan said was inspired by the Hall Of Fame induction, and have been touring in support of their 2016 album This House Is Not For Sale.
In addition to their Hall Of Fame honour, Bon Jovi will also be receiving the Icon Award at the iHeartRadio Music Awards on March 11.
The 33rd annual Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame induction ceremony will take place in Cleveland on April 14.
