Kevin Mazur/WireImage (NEW YORK) — Guitarist Richie Sambora is leaving Bon Jovi’s Because We Can tour.  At least, for a while.

The band made the announcement on its official website, saying only, “Due to personal issues, Richie Sambora will not be performing on this upcoming leg.  All shows will go on as scheduled.”

The band’s next scheduled show is Wednesday night in Edmonton, Alberta, with additional North American dates scheduled through April 25.  On May 7 and 11 they play two dates in South Africa before heading to Europe.

No word yet on who will be standing in for Sambora on the road.
