Jon Bon Jovi warns Justin Bieber about being late to a concert: 'It just becomes a cliche'

"They run the risk of disrespecting their audience members who have worked hard to pay for their ticket, to give you the permission to take two or three hours of their lives -- or in that kid's case, 80 minutes of their lives.

Do it once, you can be forgiven. Do it enough times and shame on you. They won't have you back. Then it just becomes a cliché. It's really not cool -- you're an a**hole. Go to f***in' work!" Bon Jovi tells the Evening Standard.

The frontman also addressed the recent departure of guitarist Richie Sambora, once again only saying that it's for personal reasons.

"It's getting more and more difficult every day to not just sit here and say something... Because all I can say is this -- it's for personal reasons. He's been through it before, fortunately for us the same guy who filled in last time was available this time," says Bon Jovi.

"You have a choice -- you either figure it out, go and grow, not only survive but thrive. Or, you say, 'I hate my brother and I'm gonna quit the band," he continues.
