Richie Sambora to leave Bon Jovi tour
NEW YORK (AP) - April 28, 2011 (WPVI) -- Bon Jovi announced that Richie Sambora will miss dates on its current tour amid reports that the guitarist is heading to rehab.
In a statement released Thursday, the group said its support for Sambora was "absolute" and that he remained a member of the band. But it also said he would miss an undetermined number of concerts and that it looked forward to his "healthy return."
Neither the band nor its publicist would confirm or deny reports that Sambora planned to enter rehab. He went to rehab a few years ago.
