Bon Jovi will embark on their "Because We Can" 2013 Tour, for the first time without guitarist Richie Sambora. After months of feuding with Jon Bon Jovi, the band's lead singer, the band has decided to let him go. There are rumors that this might be their last tour.

Jon and Richie has had a public spat since Jon and his bandmates have suggested that Richie go to rehab. It has been alleged that Sambora has a "substance abuse" problem. They have not communicated since April.  Sambora did not join the group for their spring performances citing "personal reasons."

 "It's disheartening that it has come to this. Richie is healthy. He is not drinking. He is sober. Indeed, he is the one who helped Jon's daughter after she was arrested in November and Jon clearly wanted his daughter to get the same help that worked for Richie," said a source to RadarOnline.

The Bon Jovi tour will proceed as scheduled. They have a back-up guitarist, Phil X, who has filled in for Sambora in the past, will join the band as their guitarist for the duration of the tour. It will kick off at the Pinnacle Bank Arena in Lincoln on October 20. It is their first concert in the city since 1985.

Sambora has eventually released his own solo single "Come Back As Me." This has further fueled rumors that this may be band's final tour as it might eventually break up.
