Dire Straits enters Rock Hall without Knopfler

Dire Straits enters Rock Hall without Knopfler

Soul legend Nina Simone and Sister Rosetta Tharpe, the gospel inspiration for early rockers, both of whom were posthumously inducted, and British rockers Dire Straits rounded out the 2018 Hall of Fame class.

Dire Straits' participation in tonight's ceremony remains uncertain.

Bon Jovi is set to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame tonight in Cleveland, Ohio, and the entire state of New Jersey is celebrating, as Governor Phil Murphy has declared that April 14 as Bon Jovi Day.

Radio superstar Howard Stern inducted the band with an irreverent, profanity-laced speech and also led the crowd in singing "Wanted Dead Or Alive", one of Bon Jovi's biggest hits that helped them sell 130 million albums.

Simone, who won induction on her first nomination, was widely considered one of the most influential singers of the 20th century who brought the sensibilities of classical music to gospel and jazz. Similar to the Cars, some former members later came together and toured as Straits, but frontman Mark Knopfler hasn't been interested in a reunion - not even for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction.

The actual induction ceremony started at 7:30 p.m.

Check back here for the latest red carpet photos, as well as live coverage from Cleveland.com and live streaming. It was a surprise for the group members in attendance: Jon Bon Jovi (with his wife and four children), David Bryan, Tico Torres, Hugh McDonald, Richie Sambora, and Alec John Such (who will be inducted tonight).

R&B-infused progressive rockers the Moody Blues took the stage to perform "Your Wildest Dreams", while New Wave pop songwriters the Cars played "Just What I Needed". Fans also were able to vote on the Rock Hall's website.
