Richie Sambora

Livin' On a Prayer of ...


6/29/2013 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Never Say Goodbye Bon Jovi fans ... Richie Sambora tells TMZ, his split from Jon and the rest of his band mates is NOT forever ... probably.

As TMZ previously reported ... Sambora pulled out of Bon Jovi's current world tour for "personal issues" -- sources told us part of the reason was Jon Bon Jovi and Richie were fighting over money.

So when our photog spotted Richie out in Beverly Hills Friday -- he had to ask about the split and the reportedly less-than-stellar ticket sales as of late (some shows were reportedly cancelled due to poor numbers).

Sambora keeps his poker face on for the most part, but does gives us a tiny, nugget of hope -- the breakup might soon come to an end.

Judge for yourself.

Saw the BJ concert in OKC right before Richie bailed. The problem with ticket sales is #1 they want too much money. And #2 no one wants to hear the new crap. Everyone wants the old stuff sung kike it was sung back then...

Even before the breakup, their popularity seemd to have waned. This just seems like Jon acting like an ass. He's kept richie out hoping to prove he can do it without him. Clearly he can't.

Richie Sambora found out he's not all that without Bon Jovi & hoping Bon Jovi takes him back.

I looked at some ticket prices in East Rutherford, NJ. Cheapest tickets are $49.75 for the top row of a football stadium and as far away from the stage as possible. For anything decent, it's $114.70 a ticket. John Bon Jovi isn't worth that much and adding Richie Sambora isn't going to make people flock to the concert.
BTW, ONE SEAT in the Pit is $599.50, and the "Diamond VIP Experience" seat in the Pit is $1875.00 - I'm assuming it includes oral sex from a groupie.

I don't know why anyone would ever pay to see those old farts. I never liked his music when it was new.

I've seen them once but prices have just gotten way to high and if Ritchie isn't playing, no way would I go....not even if someone gave me free tickets. I realize they have to make money but regular fans can't get good seats anymore, you have to have a certain credit card to buy seats in certain sections, or buy VIP or this or that, total crap!

Well reading all of the comments at least Richie is a Real Guitar player and a Real Musician.

Unlike chris brown, kayne, bieber, riri and all the others TMZ publishes everyday.

As TMZ is supposed to be in the reporting of entertainment related news. Maybe they could do just that instead mike reports whatever a no-talent sex tape's publicists reads to him daily how pathetic.

Report on real Actors, Muscians, Athletes etc TMZ that would be refreshing. Maybe let Max have more responsibility on stories. He is young, knows kanye is garbage etc. give Max more of a voice. Common miley is not even close to being hot, Max knows it.

Instead you are always running innocent teenager's lives through the mud. Or constantly reminding them of the sadness of losing their Father.

How would you like it Harvey if the tables were turned and we knew all about your personal life?
