  8. Congratulations! You guys deserve it you are the greatest band in the universe! I’ve been a Bon Jovi fan since I was 12 years old I’m 41 now. When you find a good thing you stick to it no one else can compare to you love you lots!

  9. Congratulations!!. I am happy y’all are being inducted into the ROCK & ROLL HALL OF FAME. . . FINALLY!!

    Big fan, love your music. I always feel GOOD when I listen to your songs. I get the same feeling when I listen to The Beatles.
    The music lifts me up.

    Thank you for all the music, for all the years!

  10. So well deserved-Congratulations. I began listening to your music with my daughters; they are grown and moved out of the house. I went to my first concert in Greenville, SC in 2017. It was amazing! Jan of Spartanburg, SC.

  11. An honor that is long overdue. Bon Jovi have been eligible for the Rock N Roll Hall Of Fame since 2008, were nominated once previously in 2011, & finally are going to be inducted in 2018. Having been a fan of Jon & the boys since I was a child, this is the happiest moment for me as a Bon Jovi fan!

  12. So well deserved and long overdue! I’m looking over this morning at the “Bon Jovi Live 2011” chair I keep in my office with a big grin. Congratulations!


  14. Congrats to my guys, but as a true and loyal Bon Jovi fan from 1985, if Richie Sambora does not get to play at the ceremony, that will be a travesty beyond words. All that “Jersey guy hometown brotherhood loyalty” stuff would have been all talk, all these years just an act. Smoke. I will be disappointed more than I can express in this little box. You got there together, you needed each other…let the man play. You are coming off like a bitter old man and that needs to change pronto. Let the man play. Till the day that we die, Blood on F’ing Blood.


  16. I have been a fan since I first heard Runaway many, many years ago in high school. Made sure to marry a man who was also a devoted Bonjovian and tomorrow is our 33rd Anniversary. We have driven over 1200 miles roundtrip to see concerts. “Always” is OUR song, “It’s My Life” is my personal theme. Never was an honor so well and long deserved! Congratulations to you all!

  17. Congratulations, way to go! You were favorite band from my childhood! I wish to see you guys in concert the next time you are in town. Michael, from Oshawa, Ontario, Canada.

  18. There was never a doubt!!!!!!! Should have been automatic. God bless, you guys earned your stripes a long time ago. Congratulations!!!!!!

  19. Congrats! Great for years (decades) of hard work! EnjoyKeep up the good work and most of all the pleasure! Good job for all who works for and with the Bon Jovi Team! No donut TH I N F S tour should come to the Netherlands and celebrate this with the Dutch fans

  20. Congratulations!!! Thank you for all the great music! Can’t wait for your new songs 😀
    Please come back to Dallas, TX!!!

  21. Congrats! Great for years (decades) of hard work! EnjoyKeep up the good work and most of all the pleasure! Good job for all who works for and with the Bon Jovi Team! No doubt TH I N F S tour should come to the Netherlands and celebrate this with the Dutch fans

  22. Legends, still rocking and the music is still super. Was disappointed with how Richie left the band high n dry but Jon and the boys still kept going on. This could bring Richie back to his senses as there is room in the band for him and phil. Would be great to see the classic acoustic songs played by the founders of the unplugged sessions.

  23. Congratulations to you all for the good result obtained with great merit, thanks to the support of your fans (including me, I adore you!) Who have shown great loyalty to the band. I am an Italian woman of 61 years, I hope I can attend a concert next year, I hope you do it in Milan at the San Siro stadium, a mythical place of great emotions demonstrated on the 2013 tour on June 29th. My big dream is to be able to see and hear you. It ‘s the first time I write to you in English, forgive me if I made some mistakes. Best wishes and still wishes Merry Christmas to all the band and their families. You’re too strong guys! Ornella

  24. Yes guys!! Always good music. Love you so much! I hope to see you again at the next Runaway Tour! Continue, you are fantastic!

    It never fails to uplift me in my loneliest hours. Whenever I listened to the intro of wanted it gives me extra boost
    to push thru to my bar hours of driving. I wonder if there’s a raffle that I can join to see you guys live in Rock Hall.

    More blessings to you,

    Paul from Cleveland

  43. I take advantage of this space to make my personal birthday wishes to John Shanks, I was born on the same day, but a few years ago. I ask you the courtesy to forward them to you. I don’t like social media. I am the usual Italian lady (now aged 62) who every now and then writes to you and waiting to see one of your concerts in Italy in Milan at the San Siro stadium. I thank you and I cordially greet you. Ornella.

  44. Well deserved, legends!!. I remember buying Slippery when wet in 1987, and seeing you in Sydney, you flew high above us during Living on a prayer. Awesome. I have unfortunately missed each freakin tour since due to work. I really hope you come back down to Oz. I will not miss it again. The wife and I love you guys.

Bon Jovi is the best band in the entire world, and you will be in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2018. It happened, their in, Yeah! I also gave a $200 dollar donation in supporting his JBJ Soul Foundation which is a wonderful cause and the food is excellent and the people are great. The band really rocked in Rock in Rio 2017 excellent performance by Jon Bon Jovi and his band. I am a fan forever. CONGRATULATIONS BON JOVI

  58. They should DEFINITELY play “Blame It On the Love of Rock & Roll”; anyone know how to suggest to the band I have NEVER given up on????

  59. I visited USA two years ago and the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Cleveland was a must. I was sad not to see this band there. I am a Bon Jovi fan since ’88 and, hearing about their nomination, I voted almost every day from all my emails addresses. I’m glad to see these great guys obtaining world recognition (that they fully deserve) also by this induction. I will visit Cleveland again, I hope it will be soon. Have a rewarding Rock & Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony! Greetings from Romania, we are waiting for a new concert in Bucharest. I was lucky enough to participate at the Live Listening Party in London Palladium in October 2016 and the new album will rock the stages again! All the best for 2018!

  60. Congratulations!! I’m a Jersey girl who first saw you guys live when you opened for Cheap Trick at Great Adventure in Jackson NJ waayyyy back. It was love forever!!!

  63. I wish the band a lot of success Jon Bon Jovi! you deserve and fought hard for this great achievement. Shoot !!! I am very fan and I will be cheering for you! Renata from Brazil

  64. Wish our family were there in Cleveland for the ceremony. (If only we could get tickets, probably we would drive there tonight from NYC.)
    So happy, so proud of the band!!! Been a die hard (Thai) fan since my tween years. (Went to see your first concert ever in Thailand. Was right at the front roll. Awesome!) Now my kids 8, 6 and 3 sing Bon Jovi’s songs word by word. (except our 3 years old songs….”You give love a…..BATMAN!!! LOL)
    Congratulations and thank you for great works for all these years. You guys are awesome!

  65. Great to know you finally got inducted, truly a great price for all you’ve done for music…
    But best of all, was to see the band reunited again with Richie Sambora, as it should be, as it should become again…
    Bon Jovi is not really Bon Jovi without Richie’s guitar and backing vocals!!

  66. I’m cuban and I’m so happy for this price, is a way to confirm that Jon Bon Jovi is still alive, that Rock’n’roll is still alive, the good music is still alive. I’m so grateful for been living in this century, the century of BON JOVI. Thanks for existing. We’re waiting for you in Cuba, I hope some day you brings to cuban people a big and wonderful concert.

  67. Bon Jovi are my favorite group for long years. Some of the songs helped me when I was down. To me Bon Jovi are the best group ever and they marked my life through the years. Unforgettable! Jon, I was madly in love with you when I was a student and wrote a poem about you. You are the best!!

  68. I went to see you guys in Hyde Park London at the summer time festival and it was the best concert I have EVER been too… incident stop singing all night, lost my voice for two days but it was worth it…

  69. We weren’t going to go if they didn’t induct you!

    BON JOVI is Rock’s Most Famous Band in The WORLD!

    Of course we Have To Induct You!

    ROCK ON…

  70. Nine years ago, we could not get tickets for your concert in Nijmegen, the Netherlands. But finally you will come again to rock the Netherlands! THANK YOU! In a few days the ticket sale will start and we do hope that we will get the tickets this time, so that my best friend, her daughter, me and my daughter can sing along with your great songs in Nijmegen! Hopefully, this great wish will come true!
