RICHIE SAMBORA will not be performing on upcoming Bon Jovi shows!

Sad news for all Sambora-Fans:
Richie will not take part in the next leg of the Bon Jovi tour! This was announced on the official band page. It is not specify when or if Richie will rejoin the band. So the tour continues without him through the USA in April and later in South Africa and Europe.
The official statement just says "Due to personal issues, richie Sambora will not be performing on this upcoming leg. All shows will go on as scheduled". There is no reason or an information who will replace him yet.

In April 2011 Richie left the tour also. The reason was rehab, but this time Richie seemed to be in top form. I'll keep you up to date if there are more informations!

Update 1:
It seems there is a dispute between Richie Sambora and Jon Bon Jovi about money and Jon's attitude towards Richie. This is reported by
Please keep in mind that this is just a rumor and nothing official to date!
In the meantime guitar player Phil X will handle Samboras part on stage and Bon Jovi announced that every ticket purchaser can get a refund on the tickets before show time.
