“Our support for Richie is absolute,” the band declared in a statement. “He is, and will remain, a member of Bon Jovi. Although he will be absent from upcoming shows for the time being, we very much look forward to his healthy return. In the meantime, we will keep our commitment to our fans and continue our tour.”

The upcoming tour will feature one last stop in New England as Bon Jovi return to Uncasville, Connecticut for a show at the Mohegan Sun Arena on Saturday, May 7. It will be their second time at the venue this year and fourth in the past two years. Tickets for the show are now on sale through Ticketmaster for $135 and $210.
