Bon Jovi‘s camp released a statement last night, confirming that guitarist Richie Sambora is indeed entering rehab and that the band’s current slate of tour dates in North America and overseas will not be canceled or postponed.

“Our support for Richie is absolute. He is, and will remain, a member of Bon Jovi,” read the statement. “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.”

No further comment about Sambora’s situation has been released. MTV contacted the band’s spokesperson, who declined to comment on who will take over for Sambora on the road. The band’s tour beginstomorrow, so we guess we’ll find out who is filling in for Sambora at that time. The tour runs through July 31 in Spain.
