Richie Sambora

Out of Rehab,

Joining the Tour

6/5/2011 7:16 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Richie Sambora is out of rehab and has just landed in New York City, but he's not staying long -- he's rejoining the Bon Jovi tour.

Sambora told our photog at JFK he was feeling good -- which was evidenced by the fact he signed dozens upon dozens of autographs for fans.

He arrived from Los Angeles, but planned on heading right back out -- he's meeting up with Jon and the boys for the European leg of the tour. They are scheduled to play in Croatia on Wednesday.

Sambora checked himself into rehab in late April after, we're told, he fell of the wagon.

He gives rehab a "bad name"....

Dude, go home, rest up, and stay away for awhile until you have beaten your demons. Last place to get well is while you are touring.

Q    

yawn snore zzz-zzz...same old same old...rehab, repeat, rehab, repeat, rehab, repeat. it will all make for great sections of his future and of course, post career obligatory memoirs book. Why JBJ hasnt dumped this Fraud is beyond me. He's totally sober his whole life and keeps this goof around him and others. I'd dump him like so many other super groups dumped their "problem" child. Guitar players are a dime a dozen with the style that goof plays. Any local studio guy can emulate that junk in their sleep, without the drugs and drink.

bahhh    

Richie...Richie..Richie....while it is admirable that you want to 'get back to work' and kick some @ss in concert, and it is understandable the loyalty you feel toward Jon and the band, BUT, maybe it is time you focused on YOU...? is going on a rock tour right after rehab the best option...? Get well and stay well, for your daughter, and for yourself...Really don't want to read about you becoming a casualty of rock...:(

Concerned Richie Fan    

While I'm sure all the fans are dying for Richie to rejoin the tour, I just hope he's really taking good care of himself. He may be okay while on tour as he'll be busy but what happens when the tour ends? Do all the demons appear again? The best thing he can do for himself is dump that bimbo blondy who thinks she can design clothes. I've rarely seen her sober in interviews, which means she's an enabler! Go away gold digger, & let Richie heal. He deserves so much better in life.
