Sambora Pulls Out Of Bon Jovi Tour
Richie takes indefinite leave of absence.Richie Sambora has pulled out of the Bon Jovi World Tour due to "personal reasons." He is not planning to re-join them on the tour, which will continue as planned.
Sambora failed to join the rest of the band in Canada on Tuesday night, when Jon addressed the crowd with: 'I had two choices - pack up and go home or give you everything I got. Richie Sambora won't be performing for a while. If there's ever a night I need you, it's tonight!'
No clear reasons have been given for Sambora leaving, but it is believed to be unplanned given the abruptness of his departure.
