Folks holding tickets to see the upcoming Bob Seger and the Silver Bullet Band show at the Xcel Energy Center will have to wait a bit longer.

Xcel officials announced the show - scheduled for Nov. 15 - has been postponed along with 18 other dates so Seger could tend to a health issue, per his doctor's orders.


The health issue involves vertebrae in Seger's spine, though the Xcel release didn't have further details. 

"I'm so disappointed to have to suspend the tour as the band is on a great roll," said Seger, writer of such hits as "Night Moves," "Against the Wind" and "Mainstreet," via the release. "It's a privilege to play for our amazing fans. Hoping to be back out on the road very soon."

Seger and the band had just played the 13th sold out show of their Runaway Train Tour on Thursday in Pittsburgh before he was ordered to shut down.

The tour's 14th show, in Columbus, was postponed. 

The release says rescheduled dates will be announced when available, and that tickets for rescheduled concerts will be honored on those dates. An Oct. 10 show in Des Moines and a Nov. 17 show in Chicago are among those canceled, as well.
