After playing DTE Energy Music Theatre and officially closing out the Palace of Auburn Hills, Bob Seger has had to postpone the rest of his tour due to an "urgent medical issue" that happens to be something wrong with his vertebrae, according to reports.

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

The rescheduled dates will be announced once logistics have been worked out and everything confirmed. Tickets already bought will of course be honored.
