Bob Seger is postponing his remaining 2017 tour dates because of an "urgent medical issue concerning his vertebrae," his team announced Tuesday.

The Detroit rocker, 72, had 18 dates left on his schedule, running through Nov. 17. He was scheduled to play at the Moda Center on Nov. 9.

Tuesday's announcement follows the cancellation of his Saturday show in Columbus, attributed to a pinched nerve.

Shows will be rescheduled, Seger's camp says, and existing tickets will be honored for those dates.

Ticket holders can also obtain refunds from their point of purchase.

“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.”

Seger and the Silver Bullet Band had kicked off their latest round of touring Aug. 24 in Toledo and had played 13 dates so far.

Many stops on this tour have been billed as Seger's final shows at the respective venues.
