Bon Jovi's original line up will reunite for the upcoming Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony which will take place on April 14.

Jon Bon Jovi, Alec John Such, and Richie Sambora will play a handful of songs at the said gathering in Cleveland.

In 1993, Such left the Bon Jovi band. Twenty years later, Sambora also left the group. Fans of Bon Jovi will also see the trio performing with drummer Tico Torres and keyboardist David Bryan at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Tico Torres Opens Up About Upcoming Reunion

During a recent interview, Torres opened up about the upcoming reunion with the original members of Bon Jovi. He said that he was delighted to speak to Such on the phone after so many years.

"We took that journey together at certain times as a group, and I think it's wonderful we can re-enact that - not only for us, but for the fans. I think when you get together with old friends, there's always going to be some deep emotions within that," said Torres.

Bon Jovi's Ongoing Tour

Bon Jovi was formed in 1983, and the band managed to release a total of 13 albums, including Slippery When Wet, New Jersey, Keep the Faith and Have A Nice Day. At present, Jovi, Torres, and Bryan are on tour to promote their album This House Is Not For Sale. The compilation was released two years ago.

Some of the songs from the album include "Living With the Ghost," "Knockout," "Labor of Love," "Born Again Tomorrow," "Scars on this Guitar," "God Bless This Mess," "Come on Up to Our House," "The Devils in the Temple," and "Roller Coaster."

Jon Bon Jovi Gushes Over Howard Stern

Howard Stern will induct the band into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. In January, the band's lead singer told Stern in The Howard Stern Show that he is the first choice to induct the band. He said that no one knows him, as well as the Bon Jovi band members, as good as Stern does.

During their conversation, the 55-year-old musician also told the audience that he and Stern have had parallel careers. They have also experienced very similar ups and downs in their lives.

"We've come through everything together and we do this at this point because we love the people we work with..." said Jovi.
