Sambora Leaves Bon Jovi Tour
Richie Sambora will sit out the rest of Bon Jovi’s ongoing American tour.
The guitarist has checked into rehab, and it’s not known when he’ll rejoin the band, who’ve issued the following statement:
“Our support for Richie is absolute. He is, and will remain, a member of Bon Jovi. Although he will be absent from upcoming shows for the time being, we very much look forward to his healthy return. In the meantime, we will keep our commitment to our fans and continue our tour.”
Sambora is being temporarily replaced by Phil X (real name Phil Xenidis). In the past, he’s worked with Alice Cooper, Rob Zombie, Triumph and Daughty. What’s not currently known is whether Sambora will be back with Jovi in time for Jovi’s UK dates.
