Bon Jovi fans are excited to see founding member Richie Sambora join his former bandmates on stage for the first time in five years.

But it turns out, he’s already gotten on stage with them. Sambora reveals that he recently reunited with Jon and the gang for rehearsals before their Hall Of Fame induction ceremony this weekend.

Sambora told Billboard, “We already rehearsed and it was wonderful, it wasn’t awkward.”

Bon Jovi will be inducted to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on April 14th. Former founding bassist Alec Jon Such, who left in 1993, will also take the stage for a performance with the band.
