Richie Sambora Is Missing! 'Personal Issues' Leave Bon Jovi Without Their Guitarist!

richie sambora missing

Bon Jovi guitarist Richie Sambora is completely M.I.A. and we have NO IDEA where he has gone or why.

The guitarist was mysteriously absent last night during Jon Bon Jovi's performance in Alberta, Canada as part of the Because We Can tour.

As if that wasn't enough, it was later announced that Richie would not appear in ANY of the shows during the band's second leg of tour.

While Jon dismissed jail time and rehab as the reason for Richie's disappearance (below), he won't reveal anything else!

The band's website released a statement that said:

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

But if it's not the slammer or a relapse, than what else does personal issues mean???!!

We hope his little girl, Ava, is alright!

The fans want answers!!

We know we're nosy, but it is only because we care!

    How come Richie keeps on having to pay the 12-Step religious AA/NA cult Treatment Industry $50,00 for access to the "HIGHER POWER"?
    *
    AFTER 4 TIMES IN TREATMENT when is the 12-Step religious AA/NA cult's "HIGHER POWER" going to do it HIGHER POWER THINGY on Richie?

    What a rotten roll-model for his daughter; she'll be strung-out on heroin by 18 too…

    It's CALGARY Alberta Canada. Americans are so self centered that all they have to say is the city and everyone is supposed to know where that is.

    Wow. The comments below are atrocious. Small lives = small brains. Some are hoping he doesn't have cancer or had a heart attack. Why must people think rehab? And what horrible things to say about Ava. She must be worried as hell. Get a life, people.

    a) It's Calgary, Alberta. Alberta is a province. Calgary is a city.
    b) YOU have declared him M.I.A. That's NOT the story. You made that shit up to post on this site. Out of your asses you pulled this. If you personally don't know where Richie Sambora is on any other random Wednesday at lunchtime do you declare him M.I.A.? No.
    c) The band statement is sadly limited in details but a new post also shows that IF anyone wants refunds on tickets to non-Richie shows, they can ask for them (I mean, that makes you sort of a non-supportive, fair-weather douchefan.)
    d) You fail to acknowledge that Richie's last minute non-participation in last night's show was acknowledged and a $100K donation to a Calgary homeless shelter was made. But why share that positive information — oh, right. That's not what this site does.
    e) YOU DON'T CARE. About Richie or his daughter (seriously, you're stalking a minor.) you are nosy because it makes you rich. and you thrive on the failures, misfortunes, missteps, misquotes, tragedies, and personal shortcomings of others and you've made a career of it. So, yes. You care. In so much as you traffic in human frailty and get off and get rich on mocking others.

    Hopefully, Sambora will get his issues sorted and head back out on the road.
    Already, he's a better human than anyone employed by Perez Hilton.
    And likely a better writer.

    You don't care, Perez. You're a leech.

    Umm, actually Jon did not dismiss rehab. I was there and his exact words were "I got a call at 3:30pm today that Richie wouldn't be performing tonight". Then he went on to say "he's not in jail, he's not in the hospital, but he won't be performing anytime soon". Jon looked extremely out of place for the first few songs, seemed upset and or angry, and donated a large amount of money to Calgary's homeless shelter. All signs point to relapse.

    I'm really sad he won't be on this leg of the tour. I'm seeing them in a few weeks and I've seen them plenty of times in my life (13) and it's going to be really weird to not have Jon and Richie on stage together. I hope he is ok.
