Richie Sambora Drops Out of Bon Jovi Tour for "Personal Issues"

April 3, 2013

Is there tension among the two key members of Bon Jovi?

The band left a statement on its official website today that said its founding guitarist will not be joining his colleagues on tour this spring. It reads:

"Due to personal issues, Richie Sambora will not be performing on this upcoming leg. All shows will go on as scheduled."

No other details have been made available, but an insider compares Sambora's feud with Jon Bon Jovi to Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, telling TMZ there is contention over both money and how Jon treats Richie.

The first leg of Bon Jovi's Because We Can tour kicks off tonight in Edmonton.

It will move to 14 cities including St. Paul, Minn., Austin, Texas, Los Angeles and Las Vegas before wrapping up on April 25 in San Jose.
