|Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum Announces Details of the Special Appearance by Bon Jovi
The New Jersey rockers will present artifacts for the Museum's collection
The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum has announced the details of the special appearance by Bon Jovi on Saturday, May 5, 2001 at 3:00 p.m. on the Museum's Main Stage. Members of the band will be in attendance for a brief press conference to present to the Museum various artifacts from their 17-year career.
"We are delighted that the band (Bon Jovi) has agreed to loan us items that have played a significant role in their terrific career," said Jim Henke, Vice President of Exhibitions and Curatorial Affairs for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum. "We want to increase the number of artifacts in our collection from '80s and '90s bands. These pieces from Bon Jovi are fabulously evocative of that era."
While the event is free and open to the public, there will be no performance by the band at the Museum. However, those in attendance have the chance to win tickets to stand on stage during the band's sold-out performance at Gund Arena on Saturday evening.
Bon Jovi propelled onto the music scene in 1984 with the release of their self-titled debut album. Since then, they have sold more than 80 million albums throughout their career. The band's current release, Crush was recently certified double-platinum. Bon Jovi was nominated for two Grammys this year for Best Rock Duo or Group for "It's My Life" and Best Rock Album for Crush. The New Jersey natives will release their first-ever live album One Wild Night on May 22, 2001. Bon Jovi is currently on a tour of the United States, which will culminate in two sold out "homecoming" shows at New Jersey's Giants Stadium July 27th and 28th.
The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum, located in Cleveland, Ohio, is the world's only museum dedicated to preserving the living legacy of rock.
