Celebrated American rock icon Richie Sambora stunned the sold-out crowd at Dolly Parton’s London O2 Arena show when he made a surprise appearance on stage with the legendary entertainer. Duetting on the Sambora-penned Bon Jovi hit “Lay Your Hands On Me,” Richie brought sky-high guitar riffs and anthemic vocals while Dolly added her one-of-a-kind touch to the song, making for an unforgettable music moment.
Richie is currently touring the UK and Europe with Orianthi. He also recently collaborated with the Zac Brown Band at the CMA Music Festival earlier this month, a performance thatRolling Stone called “the best unexpected moment.”
Praise for the European/UK Tour: "Up on stage is a musician with heart and soul, who proves that he doesn't do it for the money but only for the music. Richie's passionate performance, his excellent choice of songs and his remarkable voice make you wonder why he hasn't been the frontman of his own band all along. However, with total artistic freedom and with the multi-talented Orianthi by his side, the future looks more than bright for Richie Sambora. And exciting for his fans." - WHISKEY-SODA.DE

“Richie performed to a full E-Werk venue and demonstrated his outstanding guitar and songwriting skills. After playing new songs, classic ones and even a request the show ended after more than 2 hours and 2 encores in front of an enthusiastic crowd.” - RTL.DE
“(...)the audience acted like a big choir singing along Richie Sambora solo songs as well as Bon Jovi hits and after 2.5 hours of playing Richie and Oranthi are leaving the stage, what a show Mr Sambora!” - Classic Rock Mag
