Bob Seger Postpones 'Runaway Train' Tour Dates Due To Medical Issue

By Scott T. Sterling

(RADIO.COM) – Classic rock legend Bob Seger has been forced to postpone some shows on his current tour due to doctor's orders.

According to a press release, Seger has to take care of an "urgent medical issue concerning his vertebrae."

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

The tour suspension followed the 13th date on the trek, a sold-out show in Pittsburgh last Thursday, September 28th. A show scheduled for the following Saturday, September 30th for Columbus, Ohio, was the first to be pushed back.

Rescheduled dates will be announced when available. Tickets sold for concerts that are being rescheduled will be honored at the new dates.
