Bob Seger Postpones 19 Dates Due to Back Issues

by VVN Music

Those of us who are getting older know all about how debilitating a bad back can be. Bob Seger has joined the rest of the mortals in that category.

Seger has had to postpone the last 19 scheduled dates on his Runaway Train tour after receiving "doctor’s orders to attend to an urgent medical issue concerning his vertebrae."

No further details have been released.

Bob said "I’m so disappointed to have to suspend the tour as the band is on a great roll. It’s a privilege to play for our amazing fans. Hoping to be back out on the road very soon."

The problem may have been ongoing but appeared to have flared up on Thursday or shortly thereafter with a show in Pittsburgh.  The band's Saturday show in Columbus went on to be postponed.

The postponed dates:
  • 09/30 - Columbus, OH - Nationwide Arena
  • 10/05 - Greenville, SC - Bon Secours Wellness Arena
  • 10/07 - Atlanta, GA - Infinite Energy Arena
  • 10/10 - Des Moines, IA - Wells Fargo Arena
  • 10/12 - St. Louis, MO - Scottrade Center
  • 10/14 - Kansas City, MO - Sprint Center
  • 10/19 - The Woodlands, TX - Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion
  • 10/21 - Frisco, TX - Ford Center at The Star
  • 10/24 - Austin, TX - Frank Erwin Center
  • 10/26 - Denver, CO - Pepsi Center
  • 10/28 - Phoenix, AZ - Talking Stick Resort Arena
  • 11/02 - Oakland, CA - Oracle Arena
  • 11/04 - Inglewood, CA - The Forum
  • 11/07 - Boise, ID - Ford Center
  • 11/09 - Portland, OR - Moda Center
  • 11/11 - Seattle, WA - KeyArena
  • 11/13 - Billings, MT - Rimrock Auto Arena
  • 11/15 - St. Paul, MN - XCEL Energy Center
  • 11/17 - Chicago, IL - Allstate Arena
The question now becomes, will this also mean a delay in the release of his new album?  Seger told fans that the disc would be out in November but, with dates during that month postponed for an unspecified amount of time, it is conceivable that the album might be pushed into next year while the singer recuperates.
