Bon Jovi are launching their 13th studio album ‘This House Is Not For Sale’ with a handful of shows in intimate venues around the world. Following a hometown performance at New Jersey’s Count Basie Theatre, the band decamped to the London Palladium for a “live listening party” of the new record.

Will he? Won’t he? Ever since abruptly – and mysteriously – quitting Bon Jovi back in April, Richie Sambora’s appearance at the inaugural British Summer Time festival has been in doubt. The ongoing public spat with Jon Bon Jovi – “Hire the Edge,” he suggested after the frontman praised U2’s guitarist – didn’t bode well. Nor did his comment to The Sun earlier this week: “I am not going to be on stage at Hyde Park sadly. It’s just not happening right now.”
Yet, right until the band step out, there are murmurings of buried hatchets and a surprise appearance.
