BON JOVI:  Bette Midler is a backer for their enshrinement

Bette Midler is a Bon Jovi backer.

Bette, who's headlining Broadway's Hello, Dolly!, offered her endorsement Monday night at her annual Hulaween Gala in New York, where Jon Bon Jovi was among the guests. She tells Variety she plans to cast her vote to get the band elected to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. She says, "I have my ballot. I can’t wait to vote for him. I am really excited."

She also says she'd love to record an album of "nothing but Bon Jovi ballads... I think they are really, really beautiful."

Bon Jovi performed at Midler's gala -- joking about the indictments handed down to the former Trump campaign staff while performing a set featuring "Who Says You Can’t Go Home." "Livin’ on a Prayer" and the Halloween perennials "Monster Mash" and "I Put a Spell on You." The sold-out event raised over $2 million for the New York Restoration Project.

Bon Jovi currently leads the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame fan vote.


Original Yes keyboardist Tony Kaye will perform aboard the band’s Cruise to the Edge next February.

Kevin Cronin, Bryan Hitt and Dave Amato of REO Speedwagon were at Game Six of the World Series Tuesday night at Dodger Stadium in LA.

Queen + Adam Lambert start their European tour tonight (Wednesday) in Prague.

Larry David now has a Curb Your Enthusiasm playlist on Spotify: it spans Frankie Valli's "Can't Take My Eyes off You" to George Gershwin’s "Rhapsody in Blue," with songs from the scores of West Side Story and the Godfather tossed in.

Eddie Money and Meat Loaf, both former New Yorkers, have commented on Tuesday’s terrorist attack. Money says, “Sending my condolences to all of those affected by the tragedy… Stay strong New York City…” And Meat says, “Once again my heart breaks, for the eight people who were doing nothing but riding a bike and walking and enjoying their afternoon in New York City. My prayers and thoughts go to them and their families.”

Sheryl Crow hosted and performed at a MusiCares fundraiser in her Nashville-area barn Monday. Peter Frampton and Jewel were in the audience. Previous house concerts staged by the Recording Academy charity have showcased Chris Martin, Ed Sheeran, Michael McDonald and LeAnn Rimes.
