According to a recent story in Billboard, it appears longtime Bon Jovi guitarist Richie Sambora does indeed plan to join Jon Bon Jovi and the rest of the band at the upcoming Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Class of 2018 Induction Ceremony.
Sambora told Billboard "It's the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame -- it'll be a joyous occasion. I was there for 31 years and we sold 150 million records or something and we put a lot of asses in seats in stadiums around the world and made a lot of people happy. I did so many different jobs in that band, so, yeah, I'm showing up for that. Everybody should have a smile on their face and a smile in their hearts and it should be a celebration of what we did."
The ceremony will take place on Saturday, April 14, 2018, at the Public Auditorium in Cleveland, Ohio – with the band’s classic lineup of Bon Jovi, Richie Sambora, David Bryan, Alec John Such and Tico Torres named as the members who will be inducted.
