Guitarist ends his stint in rehab and is on his way to rejoin the band on tour
TMZ reports that the guitarist has checked out of rehab in LA and flown to New York. He will then head over to Europe where the band are about to start their European tour.
Sambora checked into rehab in April to treat alcoholism, and he was replaced temporarily by Triumph guitarist Phil X and early reports suggested that Richie would be absent for the whole world tour.
However, it seems that the reports were premature and Richie should be back with the band later this week and in time for the UK leg of the tour which will see them play three huge outdoor shows.
