By The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette

The Because We Can Tour brings Bon Jovi, one of New Jersey’s most heralded bands, back to central Arkansas for the first time in two decades, when the group headlined at Barton Coliseum, Jack W. Hill writes in Thursday's Arkansas Weekend section.

What could have been a thrilling return to those days of yore, however, has been marred by band discord and health issues in recent months.

Fans have been divided over the impact on the band of losing a founding member, guitarist Richie Sambora, co-writer of many of the band’s hits. Meanwhile, the band was forced to cancel a September show in Mexico City when drummer Tico Torres had to be rushed to a hospital for an emergency appendectomy. He has since recovered and rejoined the tour.

Read tomorrow's Arkansas Democrat-Gazette for the full story.
