Richie Sambora to Sit Out More Bon Jovi Shows
Looks like Richie Sambora's "personal issues" are not solved yet. A statement of Bon Jovi's official website has announced that guitarist will not be appearing with the band on their upcoming European and South African tours. The short announcement, which was posted on April 30th simply reads: "due to a personal matter, Richie Sambora will not be performing on the European and South African leg of the tour. All shows will go on as scheduled"

The announcement comes after Jon Bon Jovi promised fans that the guitarist was still in the band to Ellen Degeneres last week: "Okay ... well ... all I can say is that, honest to God, it's a personal matter, but we love him very much and he's absolutely still a member of the band."

The band, meanwhile, has announced an Australian tour to take place this December:

12/07 - Melbourne - Etihad Stadium 12/11-Adelaide - AAMI Stadium 12/14-Sydney - ANZ Stadium 12/17-Brisbane - Suncorp Stadium

It is as yet unknown whether Sambora will be performing at these dates.
