In a brief statement they explain the guitarist has “personal issues” and as a result will not appear. They add: “All shows will go on as scheduled.”
There is all kinds of speculation as to why Sambora is taking a hiatus. He also missed shows during the 2011 tour to address addiction problems. This also seems to have sprung up just a short time before the show.
The band’s show last night in Calgary started 45 minutes late, after which Jon Bon Jovi told fans: “Richie Sambora won’t be performing for a while. I had two choices – pack up and go home or give you everything I got.”
I truly hope Richie survives his “personal issues”. This did however remind me of one of my favorite “Triumph the insult Comic Dog” episodes which I’ve attached below.
