Sambora will be performing with his on and off-stage partner, guitarist Orianthi.
This is seen as a good indication that Sambora will also be re-joining his former band of 30 years as they are inducted to the Rock Hall at the April 14th ceremony.
Many fans are hoping these events lead to a permanent reunion between Bon Jovi and Sambora, who stopped performing together in 2013.
Sambora’s role in the band was significantly more than “guitarist”. He provided key backing vocals and created some of the most well-known guitar riffs for huge hit records he co-wrote with Jon Bon Jovi – including “Wanted Dead or Alive,” “Livin’ on a Prayer” and “You Give Love a Bad Name.”
Highlights of the Rock Hall induction ceremony will be shown on HBO at a TBD date.
