Bon Jovi's Richie Sambora has left the tour over 'personal issues'

Bon Jovi visited Tampa Bay just last month, so while we got to see everyone including Richie Sambora, other cities won't have the same chance. The guitarist has left the tour for "personal issues." Again?

"Due to personal issues, Richie Sambora will not be performing on this upcoming leg," the band said in a short statement on their website. "All shows will go on as scheduled." A commenter noted the band said onstage that Sambora "would not be performing anytime soon."

This isn't the first time he's had to leave a tour before, because he's been in rehab and was arrested for DUI before. Goodness knows what it is this time, but the Bay should breathe easy that their discounted tickets were worth waiting until the last second to buy.
