Richie Sambora to miss part of tour

Richie Sambora will miss the current leg of Bon Jovi's tour

Bon Jovi's Richie Sambora will not be performing during the current leg of the band's tour, it has been announced.

The 53-year-old guitarist won't be taking part in the upcoming leg of the Because We Can tour because of "personal issues", according to a message on the Bon Jovi website.

The band said all shows would go on as scheduled.

No other information was given.

Hours before the announcement, Richie tweeted that he was "Watching more of the Every Road Leads Home To You cover videos." That was a reference to a fan contest promoting a song on his solo album, Aftermath Of The Lowdown.

Bon Jovi are set to perform in Edmonton, Canada, tonight and the current leg of their tour is scheduled to end in California on April 25.

You could hear some painful things about your behaviour. Instead of getting defensive, be open to changing for the sake of your relationship. Think back to a time when someone you loved worked hard to gain your affection and approval. Pattern your attitude after theirs. Being flexible is more important than being right.More
