Bon Jovi Show Cancelled After Tico Torres Appendectomy

Bon Jovi’s Tico Torres is the second artist to be brought down by appendicitis in the last few months.

Elton John went through the procedure recently and, Tuesday, Torres did the same forcing the band to postpone their Mexico City show until a later date.

Jon Bon Jovi reported on the situation at bonjovi.com:

Greetings from Mexico City.

Last night Tico Torres underwent an emergency appendectomy. Thankfully, the operation was a success and Tico is now recovering in the care of his doctors at the American British Cowdray Hospital. We’d like to thank the doctors, nurses and all the hospital staff who helped our friend through this difficult time.

We’ll remain here with Tico in Mexico City and will see him through his release. David and I spent the day with him at the hospital and Tico sends his thanks for all of your thoughts and prayers. He wants everyone to know that it was his desire to perform. He even promised the doctors he would come back for the surgery right after the show but the doctors prevailed.

We know many of you make great efforts and travel from around the world to see us on tour. It remains our desire to give you the best that we have every night. We are sorry for any inconvenience this sudden change of plans may have caused. We’ll re-schedule any dates that we can and will continue the tour through December. Check BonJovi.com for tour updates.

On behalf of the band, I’d like to thank all of you who support us throughout these challenges.

See you soon. – JBJ

Guitarist Richie Sambora, who exited the current Bon Jovi tour back in April, wished Torres well via Twitter. “All my love, prayers and heart goes out to my brother, Tico. He’s an amazing man, a true warrior, great artist and underestimated musician.”

The band’s next scheduled date is September 20 at the Rock in Rio Festival in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
