The 2018 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony had everything we've come to expect from the event. There were reunions, some great performances, funny speeches and plenty of emotional on display from everybody. Keep reading for our favorite moments, which include things we heard in the press room and posted on social media, and photos from Cleveland's Public Auditorium. You'll be able to relive it all when the ceremony is broadcast at 8PM ET on May 5 on HBO.
Bon Jovi's Coolest Reunion Wasn't With Richie Sambora
Richie Sambora took the stage with his old bandmates in Bon Jovi for the first time since 2013. The current incarnation of the band was also joined by original bassist Alec John Such, who left in 1994, creating a distinct two-lead guitar, two-bass lineup. They played "You Give Love a Bad Name," "It's My Life," "When We Were Us" and "Livin' on a Prayer."
If any bad blood lingered between Sambora and the others, it wasn't visible during their performance or acceptance speeches – though there was an uncomfortable moment back stage when Jon Bon Jovi was asked if Sambora might return to the band again.
