Bon Jovi Leads List of Rock Hall Inductees for 2018

The 2018 Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame class also includes The Cars and The Moody Blues.

"But all the thanks must go to The Moody Blues' fans for giving us a wonderful, wonderful life in music". The band reunited in 2010, releasing the album "Move Like This", and toured in the United States in 2011. They have not yet made any indication regarding plans to perform at the induction.

Artists can be nominated 25 years after the release of their first commercial recording. They were nominated in their first year of eligibility, often a strong sign of success. The voting body then selected their choices for induction based on a number of factors such as musical influence, career length and depth, and music in and of itself, including parameters such as "innovation and superiority in style and technique".

To choose the 2018 inductees, an global voting body of more than 900 artists, historians and members of the music industry received ballots, and the top five artists selected comprised a "fans' ballot" that was tallied along with the other ballots.

The 2018 Rock Hall ceremony takes place April 14 in Cleveland.

The ceremony will premiere on TV network HBO and will be broadcast via SiriusXM, with further details to be announced in due course. Ticket sales for the general public will be announced soon; Rock and Roll Hall of Fame members (or those who become one by December 31) will be eligible for a pre-sale opportunity. "Most of all, I'd like to thank all of our fans who have supported us over the years, and have steadfastly stood by us".
