However, one of the most talked-about inductions this year came in the form of Bon Jovi, who announced in February that their original lineup was set to reunite for the induction performance, including famed guitarist Richie Sambora, who left the group back in 2013.

"We've had this in the works since December", Ms. Weir, 66, said, adding she and her husband have seen the Moody Blues more than 30 times. Opening with 1984's playful "You Might Think", they continued with the more muscular "Moving in Stereo" from their 1978 self-titled debut, before ending with "Just What I Needed", their first hit, also from The Cars. Following these speeches, the group took to the stage to perform this long-awaited reunion, which also included an appearance from Alec John Such for the first time since 2001, after leaving the group in 1994.

The fan favorite by far was Bon Jovi.

Bon Jovi will be inducted along with Dire Straits, the Moody Blues, Nina Simone and others.

Legendary rock band Bon Jovi, were the first band to take the stage, with radio host Howard Stern on hand to introduce them.

The couple was just a few of the 6,000 people who attended the sold-out 33rd annual Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony. Mary J. Blige will induct Simone, while Andra Day will sing in her honor. Tharpe, dubbed the "Godmother of Rock and Roll", and known for her finger picking guitar technique, is said to have influenced the likes of Johnny Cash and Chuck Berry.

The Early Influences Award for guitarist Rosetta Tharpe was presented by Alabama Shakes' singer-guitarist Brittany Howard.

In the days leading up to their moment in the spotlight, Best Classic Bands spoke to group members Elliot Easton and Greg Hawkes. "It's a bit weird, but life's odd", he said.

Ric Ocasek previously told Rolling Stone that Benjamin Orr "would have been flipped out" by the band's Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction in Cleveland. The fellow Seattle artists paid tribute to their friend, who died in 2017, with a powerful performance of Soundgarden's "Black Hole Sun". "All of those things meant a lot to me". "She knew who she was, and she was confident", Blige said. The Cars founding bassist died in 2000, but he was a big part of the band's long-overdue induction ceremony in Cleveland as his bandmates remembered him in their speeches. It could be a "Champagne Supernova" kind of evening.

Rock Hall voters have recently opened their hearts to progressive rockers, which benefited "Nights in White Satin" singers The Moody Blues, to be inducted by Ann Wilson of Heart.
