Lets hope that maybe by then whatever personal issues he has it would be resolved, since he does live in SoCal, maybe he might be back by then.

It seems that it just all happened now. Got this from another board. Two quotes from Jon.

"If there's ever a night I need ya, it's tonight, Calgary!" - Bon Jovi on Richie Sambora saying he wasn't coming at 3:30 pm

"I had two choices - pack up and go home or give ya everything I got .... Richie Sambora won't be performing for awhile"

He's been on vacation maybe he's burned out and isn't mentally ready to go back on tour.

This happened that last time too. They were on vacation and then he couldn't perform too. It seems that Jon got the call at 3:30pm just before the show. Everything went down today.

he's not in the hospital or jail but we love him & send him all our best. I could pack up & cancel, not an option for tonight.

Hope he just needs a short break to refuel if thats the case but I doubt it since Jon said he wouldn't be performing for awhile. Very sad news.

According to Dry County, Jon said something along the lines that Riche is not in jail or the hospital. We love him and wish him the best. Not sure if that is a direct quote from Jon or not.

This sounds more like a family emergency than Richie having addiction issues. I pray that he and his family will be surrounded by love and support.
