American rock icon Richie Sambora is set to storm Europe this summer with a series of headline shows and festival appearances.
Richie Sambora has become known throughout his 30-year career for his raw vocals, indelible songwriting and world-class guitar playing. As both an acclaimed solo artist and a founding member of multi-platinum, Grammy-winning band Bon Jovi, Richie has sold over 130 million albums worldwide and has co-written over 20 Top 40 hits (11 of them being Top 10), including “Livin’ On A Prayer,” “You Give Love A Bad Name” and “Wanted Dead or Alive.” He was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2009.
In addition to his work with Bon Jovi, he has released three acclaimed solo albums that have highlighted a more personal and intimate side to Richie’s songwriting: 1991’s Stranger in This Town,, and 1998’s Undiscovered Soul and 2012’s Aftermath of the Lowdown, which includes the powerful single “Every Road Leads Home To You.”
For this European run, Richie will be joined onstage by none other than Australian singer-songwriter and guitar goddess Orianthi, who has worked as lead guitarist to some of the biggest superstars in the world (Alice Cooper, Michael Jackson).
Richie is continuously lending his vocals and support to important causes and organizations that resonate deeply with him, whether it be the Hurricane Sandy relief effort affecting his home state of New Jersey or issues regarding the environment, homelessness, illness, hunger and music education.
Richie Sambora tours Europe across June and July 2014.
