Bon Jovi: Richie Sambora leaves rehab, rejoins tour

Who says you can’t go home?

Even if your home is the road.

TMZ reports Bon Jovi guitarist Richie Sambora is out of rehab and set to rejoin the band on tour this week.

He told TMZ Sunday at New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport he is "feeling good" and ready to return to the stage.

Sambora arrived from Los Angeles, but planned on heading right back out - he's meeting up with Jon and the boys for the European leg of the tour; the band is scheduled to play in Croatia on Wednesday.

Richie checked himself into rehab in late April just days before the start of the spring 2011 USA leg of the tour; Bon Jovi brought in Phil "Phil X" Xenidis, probably best known to rock fans as the guitarist who replaced Rik Emmett in Triumph for the "Edge of Excess" album and tour, to handle guitar duties in Sambora’s absence.
