Although Richie Sambora was fired from the Bon Jovi “Because We Can Tour,” his heart is still with his band of 30 years.
The guitarist sent out this tweet after he heard that dummer Tico Torres had emergency surgery:
“All my love, prayers and heart goes out to my brother, Tico, He’s an amazing man, a true warrior, great artist and underestimated musician.”
Jon Bon Jovi broke the news on the band’s Facebook page:
“Greetings from Mexico City. Last night Tico Torres underwent an emergency appendectomy. Thankfully, the operation was a success and Tico is now recovering in the care of his doctors at the American British Cowdray Hospital. We’d like to thank the doctors, nurses and all the hospital staff who helped our friend through this difficult time. We’ll remain here with Tico in Mexico City and will see him through his release. David and I spent the day with him at the hospital and Tico sends his thanks for all of your thoughts and prayers.”
Shows in Chile, Argentina and Mexico are being rescheduled because of the operation.
