Bob Seger postpones tour to tend to vertebrae issue

Bob Seger’s Runaway Train Tour is hitting the brakes — for now.

The 72-year-old rocker announced Tuesday he’s postponed upcoming tour dates with his Silver Bullet Band on doctor’s orders.

The “Night Moves” singer is taking the time off to tend to an “urgent medical issue concerning his vertebrae,” a statement on his website read.

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

Seger’s tour kicked off in August, and so far, he’s played 13 shows, most recently in Pittsburgh.

The rocker was forced to postpone a total of 19 dates through November, including stops in Chicago, Atlanta and Denver.

Thanks @stokerplasticsurgery for coming in at 9pm to sew me up!! Never had stitches or a black eye before... what a day," Mandy Moore captioned this picture of her black eye on August 31, 2017.

Tickets for the halted shows will be honored once the gigs are rescheduled.

Though Seger’s condition is currently unclear, it seems he’s been battling back issues for quite some time.

“I’ve got a real stiff neck and sore back,” he told Rolling Stone in 2011. “For the first time I’m sitting when I’m playing guitar. It hurts my back. I play two or three songs at the piano, but unusually, my back hurts worse at the piano. It’s really strange because it never did before. It’s just age. I’m getting up there.”
