Howard Stern to induct Bon Jovi into Rock Hall in Cleveland

Jon Bon Jovi Howard Stern to induct Bon Jovi into Rock Hall in Cleveland

Longtime Bon Jovi supporter Howard Stern will induct the band into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, April 14 at Cleveland's Public Auditorium.

Bon Jovi has appeared on Stern's radio show for virtually his entire career, beginning in the mid-'80s.

Yet Jon initially neglected to tell Stern that this year's induction ceremonies would be in Cleveland, not NY per usual. "I told my wife that I was going to call Jon and get out of it". From left, original members Richie Sambora, Alec John Such, Jon Bon Jovi, Tico Torres and David Bryan will be inducted, along with current bassist Hugh McDonald. "But she told me that we are both going to go to Cleveland, and that it's going to be fun". "I am so honored that you asked me", Stern stated (as transcribed by Billboard), before once again asking if the ceremony could be moved, then adding, "I am thrilled to do it".

Stern said he had turned down offers from other groups to induct them in the past, fearing he would "f-k it up".

Stern became the first inductor to be confirmed for this year's Rock Hall class, which also includes The Cars, Dire Straits, Moody Blues, Nina Simone and Sister Rosetta Tharpe.

The 33rd annual RRHOF induction ceremony will take place on April 14 at the Public Auditorium in Cleveland, Ohio, with the other inductors to be announced at a later date; the ceremony will be broadcast on HBO as well as SiriusXM.
