Late last year, Nils Lofgren released his live album UK2015 Face the Music Tour and planned on going out in January to promote the new set but Bruce Springsteen had bigger plans, going out himself to promote the deluxe version of his 1980 album The River with the E-Street Band in tow.
That short tour turned into a world trek that just recently concluded and Nils was forced to put off his solo touring until it was over. Those shows were rescheduled, in part, for November 17 through December 17 but another urgency has intervened and they will now not happen until after the beginning of the year.
Lofgren announced late Monday that he has been forced to move those dates because of an “unexpected need for surgery”.
