Bob Seger Postpones ‘Runaway Train’ Tour Dates Due to ‘Urgent Medical Issue’

Legendary rocker Bob Seger has been forced to postpone dates on his Runaway Train tour this fall, which was to feature support from Roadcase Royale, the new band featuring Heart’s Nancy Wilson and Liv Warfield of Prince’s New Power Generation.

Seger’s official site dropped the news, citing an issue with his vertebrae as the reason:

Bob Seger announced today that he will have to postpone upcoming tour dates upon receiving his doctor’s orders to attend to an urgent medical issue concerning his vertebrae.  No further details are available at this time. 

Seger commented “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.”   

Seger and his Silver Bullet Band played the 13th sold out show of their 2017 Runaway Train Tour last Thursday in Pittsburgh.  On Saturday, Seger had to postpone his 14th show in Columbus.
