Bob Seger Posts New Album Sampler, Promises Tour ‘Reboot’
Reaffirming that his recovery from a recent surgery is "progressing very well," Bob Seger is eyeing rescheduled tour dates — and in the meantime, he's also offering fans a sneak peek at his upcoming I Knew You When album.
As previously reported, Seger was forced to postpone a series of shows in order to deal with what was described as an "urgent medical issue" last month. Not long after leaving the road, Seger assured fans he was already on the mend, explaining that he'd had to undergo surgery to deal with a vertebrae that was pinching a nerve in his neck, but that it "couldn't have gone better."
With that ailment out of the way, it sounds like Seger and his reps are not only rescheduling the dates he missed due to surgery and rehab, but potentially overhauling initial plans for the tour. A new press release promises "rescheduled dates are being mapped out" for what's described as "a coast to coast reboot of the tour" that's set to roll out during the spring of 2018.
If all that feels far off at the moment, at least Seger's I Knew You When LP will soon be in stores to tide you over. Due for a Nov. 17 release, the record is getting one last big promotional push from Seger's team in the form of a new teaser video, which offers samples of five songs: first single "Busload of Faith," “I Knew You When,” “Blue Ridge,” “Democracy” and “Gracile.” Look over the clip below, and check out complete album details here.
