Bob Seger postpones tour due to “urgent medical issue”
American singer-songwriter, guitarist and pianist Bob Seger ostponed the rest of the Silver Bullet Band Runaway Train Tour after the musician received doctor’s orders to treat an “urgent medical issue” concerning his vertebrae.
So 18 of the rocker’s concerts have been postponed but no additional details about Seger’s condition were given. Tickets for the postponed dates will be honored when the concerts are rescheduled.
“I’m so disappointed to have to suspend the tour as the band is on a great roll,” Seger said on his website. “It’s a privilege to play for our amazing fans. Hoping to be back out on the road very soon.”
Seger and the Silver Bullet Band had kicked off their latest round of touring Aug. 24 in Toledo and had played 13 dates so far. The affected dates are in Greenville, Atlanta, Des Moines, St.Louis, Kansas City, The Woodlands, Frisco, Austin, Denver, Phoenix, Oakland, Inglewood, Boise, Portland, Seattle, Billings, St.Paul and Chicago.
Next month, the Detroit rocker is scheduled to release “I Knew You When,” his 18th studio album which will be dedicated to his friend and fellow Detroit musician Glenn Frey, who died in 2016.
