Bob Seger & the Silver Bullet Band postponed their Runaway Train tour after Seger had a pinched vertebra in his neck. Today on Twitter, it was announced that Seger is on his way to recovery after undergoing surgery.

The series of tweets, sent from the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer's verified account, read: “Bob is on the road to recovery after undergoing surgery on Friday to address the medical issue causing the postponement of his tour. According to his doctors surgery ‘couldn’t have gone better.’ Bob wants to thank all his fans for the outpouring of well wishes and support. We hope to have news regarding dates for the tour soon.” 

The tour was initially set to run through November 17, the release date for upcoming album I Knew You When
