One of the true icons of modern rock music in the United States, Richie Sambora will play dates in Dublin's Olympia Theatre and Belfast's Ulster Hall on the 30th June and 1st July respectively.

Sambora has become known throughout his 30-year career for his raw vocals, indelible songwriting and world-class guitar playing. Oh, and there's the little thing of being a card-carrying member of Bon Jovi, one of the biggest touring bands on the planet. 

The guitarist has sold over 130 million albums worldwide and has co-written over 20 Top 40 hits and 11 Top 10 hits, including 'Livin’ On A Prayer', 'You Give Love A Bad Name' and 'Wanted Dead or Alive' and 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 spawned the hit single 'Every Road Leads Home To You'.

Tickets will go on sale at 9am on Thursday 17th April priced at €39.05 for the Dublin show and £36 for Belfast.
