“We are pleased to celebrate Bon Jovi’s 40th Anniversary with this incredible blockbuster exhibition: Bon Jovi Forever. For decades the band has delivered massive hits and epic concerts that earned a large and loyal fanbase, and we are excited to welcome these fans to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame,” said Rock & Roll Hall of Fame President and CEO, Greg Harris, he continued, “We are grateful for the generosity of Jon Bon Jovi and his bandmates in support of this remarkable exhibition. They gave us exclusive access to their extensive archive, and we selected artifacts that will enthrall Bon Jovi fans.”

The exhibit’s opening aligns with the recently released “Thank You, Goodnight: The Bon Jovi Story”. Once inside, guests can visit four distinct sections that correspond to each part of the docu-series. Memorabilia includes never-before-seen artifacts from the band’s New Jersey roots to global stardom. Bon Jovi Forever includes artifacts, photos, audio and video that tells the story of Bon Jovi’s legacy. Highlights include the “Livin’ On A Prayer” handwritten lyrics, Jon Bon Jovi’s New Jersey leather jacket, Richie Sambora’s Ovation double-neck acoustic guitar and Tico Torres’ Pearl kick drum.

To celebrate our 40th anniversary, we have archived EVERYTHING we have from notebooks, to demos, to clothes and photographs. Cleveland felt like the perfect place to share this exhibit,” said Jon Bon Jovi.
