“I’ve released four albums since his departure,” Bon Jovi added. “The band continues on, you know? We’ll see when we reach the point of touring.”

Since leaving Bon Jovi, Sambora has only performed with the band once, at their Rock & Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony in 2018.
Despite their past differences, Sambora mentioned on “The Allison Hagendorf Show” that he is open to rejoining the band if Jon Bon Jovi’s voice fully recovers.
