EX-Bon Jovi guitarist/songwriter Richie Sambora will kick off Rock Hall induction week with a live show in Cleveland April 7.
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 [More]

They were on their feet screaming for him…but it didn’t work.
Former Journey lead singer, Steve Perry, chose not to pick up the mic to sing with the band at their Rock Hall induction a couple of weeks ago.
Perry was obviously touched by the overwhelming love being sent his way (listen to his entire speech below) but, after completing his speech, disappeared backstage and let current Journey singer, Arnel Pineda, sing the songs we know and love so much.
