It's "Bon Jovi Day" in New Jersey. This year marked the band's third nomination; Brandon Flowers, of The Killers, will induct the band. Simone will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on April 14, 2018 in Cleveland, Ohio. "It just didn't appeal to him, and I appealed to him on several occasions". Rock Hall board chairman Chris Connor also spoke about the renovations and thanked the NY board for its support.

The Cars, founded in Boston in 1976 and known for combining New Wave and classic rock sounds, were inducted this year after being nominated twice before. He and band will play the Wells Fargo Center on May 3.

Flowers will deliver the induction speech to welcome The Cars into the Hall. This year's other inductees include The Cars, Dire Straits, The Moody Blues and the late Nina Simone and Sister Rosetta Tharpe.

The sold-out ceremony begins at 7.30pm and Red-carpet arrivals start at 5.30pm and air via a livestream on the Rock Hall's website and social-media channels.

Desmond Child, who co-wrote some of the band's biggest hits, says he'd "love to see them back together".

This Saturday, thousands of people will descend upon the noted music mecca of Cleveland to watch six acts get a well-deserved induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

The Democratic governor hailed the band as "one of the most famous, enduring rock bands of all time". It was a surprise for the group members in attendance: Jon Bon Jovi (with his wife and four children), David Bryan, Tico Torres, Hugh McDonald, Richie Sambora, and Alec John Such (who will be inducted tonight).

Brothers Mark and David Knopfler, of English rockers Dire Straits, won't attend the event, according to bassist John Illsley.

A flawless Brittany Howard, of the critically acclaimed rock act Alabama Shakes, gave an extraordinary Tharpe impression onstage, winning over the audience with her rousing live performance in honor of the godmother of rock "n" roll.
