Eddie Vedder Postpones Solo Tour Dates
Rolling Stone reports that artist Eddie Vedder has decided to postpone his solo tour dates because of his recent health problems. The performer recently suffered a back injury which affected his arm nerves and Vedder cannot start his spring tour in due time.
Eddie Vedder has been through various physical exercises under the careful surveillance of his medical staff in order to recover after the incident. The singer is not capable of using his right arm because his nerves have been affected by a recent back injury, so the shows have been postponed.
Vedder was supposed to hold 15 shows in 22 cities across the United States starting April 10. His spokespersons announced that the tour was moved to fall and the first concert will be held on October 31 in Las Vegas. There have been several shows that have been cancelled entirely, as well. For instance, his appearance at the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival will no longer take place, at least for this year.
Pearl Jam manager Kelly Curtis spoke with the press and explained reporters that Vedder waited until this day to make the announcement because he thought he would recover before the starting date of the spring tour. Unfortunately, the injury turned out to be more serious than everybody had expected and now the interpreter is forced to relax and concentrate on his physical therapy.
The first concerts will be held at the Pearl in Las Vegas, whereas the last two performances will take place on December the 2nd and the 3rd in Clearwater, Florida. Vedder will spend the entire month of November performing in Phoenix – Arizona, El Paso, Houston, Austin and Dallas – Texas, as well as Orlando and Jacksonville – Florida.
People who have already bought tickets for the shows will be happy to hear that they remain valid even if the dates of the concerts have been changed. Moreover, the organizing company is willing to offer refunds for people who will not be able to make it to the fall tour.
