If a you're a ticket-holder to Sunday night's Bon Jovi concert at the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul and are unhappy with guitarist Richie Sambora decision to pull out of current leg of the band's tour, you have the option to get your money back, the Pioneer Press reports.

The band announced Wednesday that Sambora backed out of upcoming shows over "personal issues."

At the same time, the band said all tour dates would go on, along with the notice that, "Any ticket purchaser who would like a refund can do so before show time."

Refunds will be available at point of purchase, the Pioneer Press said.

Sambora, 53, missed 13 Bon Jovi shows in 2011 after a reported return to rehab.
