Bob Seger Forced to Postpone Remainder of His Runaway Train Tour

By: KANE-O!

October 4, 2017

With the death of TOM PETTY and the recent emergency surgery required by AEROSMITH's STEVEN TYLER, the news that BOB SEGER was forced to postpone the remaining dates of his 2017 Runaway Train Tour is enough to cause major concern for his fans.

Mr. Seger's issue is related to a pinched vertebrae in his neck, and fortunately, there are plans to re-schedule the shows in the affected tour stops. (Personally, I'm not surprised given the boundless energy Seger exhibits during the performances on this tour despite his age of 72 years.) In announcing the postponements on his websiteSEGER expressed his disappointment but explained that he’s hoping to be on the road again “very soon.”

In other BOB SEGER news, the singer plans on releasing a new album in November titled, I Knew You When
