Richie Sambora is dealing with some personal issues that will cause him to have to bail on some upcoming Bon Jovi shows.

On Bon Jovi's website, the band offered this simple statement:

"Due to personal issues, Richie Sambora will not be performing on this upcoming leg. All shows will go on as scheduled."

The band is currently on their "Because We Can" tour, scheduled to hit East Rutherford, New Jersey in July.

The current leg of the tour wraps up in San Jose, California on April 25th, and then it's on to Capetown, South Africa May 7th.

Hopefully, we'll see Richie in East Rutherford this summer!

All good wishes for Richie's personal troubles to be resolved soon.
