MessageSujet: THE BON JOVI/SAMBORA ..........   Ven 24 Mai - 14:00

Bon Jovi guitarist Richie Sambora
has stated fans paying to see the band without him are getting an
inferior product. Richie Sambora left the US leg of Bon Jovi's tour
abruptly in April, citing personal reasons. Promoters have not confirmed
whether he will return for the Australian leg in December, but Sambora
said Bon Jovi is making his return “very difficult”. As feuding between
Sambora and Jon Bon Jovi goes public, the guitarist has hit out at being replaced on the tour.
"The fans have paid money to see Bon Jovi and right now they are not getting the whole deal," Sambora told the UK's Daily Mail.
It follows Bon Jovi suggesting to UK paper The Guardian that Sambora
left the tour due to substance issues that saw him also disrupt a Bon
Jovi tour in 2011. "It's getting more and more difficult every day to
not just sit here and say something ... because all I can say is this -
it's for personal reasons,"
Bon Jovi said. "He's been through it before, fortunately for us the same guy who filled in last time was available this time."
In a messy case of he said/he said, Sambora told the Daily Mail: "I
don't have any major problems in life right now, I love my fans and I
feel bad for them at the moment. Bottom line. My opinion is Jon wants to
see if he can pull off stadiums by himself. He is making it very
difficult for me to come back. Enough with the trash talking! Jon needs
to stop talking about me publicly. I am fine working very hard on my
fashion company Nikki Rich and this is a private matter."

Bon Jovi also suggested Sambora - who has been in the band since 1983 - was easier to replace than U2 guitarist The Edge. "Life
goes on, so if someone chooses not to be here - unlike if this were,
God forbid, The Edge, and he for some reason couldn't make a U2 show -
(then) it would be very difficult to just step in. You have a choice -
you either figure it out, go and grow, not only survive but thrive. Or,
you say, 'I hate my brother and I'm gonna quit the band'."

Meanwhile the band have sold out of the $1875 Diamond VIP packages on
their Australian tour in every city except Melbourne. The $1875 packages
include a souvenir chair which is put in the front row and which fans
can take home with them, however does not include a meet and greet with
the band. Bon Jovi also released a limited amount of $35 tickets for
more budget-conscious fans.

BON JOVI - Richie Sambora On Rift With Jon Bon Jovi; "Nothing Is Resolved"

BON JOVI guitarist Richie Sambora continues to sit out the band's current tour due to a rift with frontman Jon Bon Jovi.

Sambora has tweeted the following: "Hey everybody, there's nothing I
can say right now cause nothing is resolved. I thank you all for your
loyalty and concern…"

On the April 23rd edition of The Ellen Degeneres Show, Jon Bon Jovi
addressed the ongoing rift and he briefly stated: "It's a personal
matter. We love him very much. He's still a member of the band."

In early April, TMZ reported that "guitarist Richie Sambora is
bailing on the Bon Jovi world tour because of 'personal issues,' but it
has nothing to do with substance abuse... it's all about a war that's
exploded between Jon and Richie."

Apparently, "sources directly connected to Bon Jovi tell TMZ...
tensions between Jon and Richie have been running high for years and
it's finally erupted. One source tells them, 'It's a classic
Jagger/Richards blowup'.

Their sources go on to say part of the problem is that Jon
constantly belittles Richie. But there's another part of the problem -
they're fighting over money."

Further details can be found at TMZ.

Bon Jovi's complete live itinerary can be found here.
