TMZ has learned, Bon Jovi's upcoming concert tour will go on, despite the fact that Richie Sambora will be entering rehab.

Bon Jovi Concert Tour

According to a rep for the band, Richie "will be absent from upcoming shows for the time being" -- but the rep adds, "We very much look forward to his healthy return."

We're told no shows will be canceled -- but the good news, Richie is still in the band.

If anyone thinks this is a washed up 80s band they should look at the list of top concert tours. Bon Jovi was #1 last year out of all bands in the world (making over 200 million dollars) and has been in the top 10 for a really long time. They may not be the best band out there, but they are far from washed up.

bahhh    

Jon and Richie are like brothers...when trouble comes knockin' on the door, the other one answers..they are like soul brothers-always have been and and always will be.....But if/when it is time for Richie to step down, I am sure he and Jon will both decide that...and do what is best for both the band and Richie.....Best Wishes to Richie and Thank You Jon for the update!!!!!

I totally agree with jensambo - I think the band should take a break while Richie recovers. they were on tour for almost all of 2010 - I'm sure they could all use a break.

Jon out of respect for Richie you couldn't postpone your tour until he's ready?
You fancy yourself as an actor, why not act like a human being and someone who cares about the fans douchebag.

Bon Jovi is great, but I wonder when, if ever, Sambora is going to grow up. Jon did a long time ago, but here's Richie at
50-something still doing the same old thing. It's not just addiction, it's a lifestyle and it hasn't served him very well.

Sambora's parts will likely be taken by Bobby Bandiera, who's been playing rhythm guitar and singing back-up on Bon Jovi's tours for years. He's a better guitarist than Sambora and has a much better singing voice, too.
