Bon Jovi beat Judas Priest in Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame fan vote
Bon Jovi top fan poll for a chance to lock down a spot at next year’s Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame ceremony - Moody Blues, Dire Straits, The Cars and Judas Priest in top 5
Bon Jovi have come out top in the fan vote to help decide who will be inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame next year.
They received 1,162,098 votes, beating out the Moody Blues (947,726), Dire Straits (613,726), The Cars (552,707) and Judas Priest (538,467).
All five bands will now appear on a single ballot that will be included in the voting pool of the Rock Hall’s “900 or so regular voters, consisting of artists, music historians and music industry insiders.”
Since the fan vote was created in 2013, the top vote winner has always gone on to be inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame. Those artists are Rush, Kiss, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Chicago and Journey.
The top overall vote winners will be announced later this month, with the induction ceremony taking place on April 14 at Cleveland’s Public Hall.
