The band was inducted and also took to the stage to perform a slew of hits including ‘You Give Love a Bad Name’ and ‘Livin’ On A Prayer’.
Sambora hasn’t played with the band since he left in 2013 while Such hasn’t been onstage with them since a one-off performance in 2001.
The band even performed their 2016 ‘When We Were Us’ which was recorded without Sambora and Such.
Prior to the performance Tico Torres told Billboard, ““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.”
Chris Cornell was also honoured at the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame induction. Ann Wilson of Heart and Alice in Chains guitarist Jerry Cantrell performed a cover of Soundgarden’s Black Hole Sun in honour of the late frontman.
