BOB SEGER: Legendary rocker reschedules several tour dates
Bob Seger has rescheduled some of the shows he had to postpone because of back surgery last year.
The 13 dates will kick off on November 24th in Kansas City, Missouri and run through mid-February 2019. Tickets for each original date will be honored. Seger's site promises that "more rescheduled dates are to come."
Seger said that once he was fully recovered he would put together a "coast-to-coast reboot" of the tour, leading to speculation that new shows will be added to the schedule after all the postponed dates are made up.
There are no Texas dates reschedules as of yet. We'll keep up updated.

JOURNEY: Jonathan Cain says his squabble with Neal Schon is over
It appears that Jonathan Cain and his Journey bandmate Neal Schon have finally buried the hatchet after being unhappy with each other for much of the past year.
Schon had been upset about Cain's reluctance to record a new album, their concert song selection, Cain sharing his religious beliefs from the stage and a White House visit by the rest of the band.
Cain tells an Albany, New York radio station that he and Schon have "just finished five days of rehearsal" for Journey's tour with Def Leppard, which kicks off tonight in Hartford, and that he thinks they've "completely reset with each other." Cain says he's looking forward to "a great tour. We've been together 38 years. There's always going to have a bump in the road. I don't know any marriage that hasn't had any squabbles. It was a misunderstanding, and I think we're ready to move on from all that."
Schon, who hasn't been doing interviews recently, has yet to comment on the matter. (Blabbermouth)

A documentary on former Rolling Stones bassist Bill Wyman is in the works. He says he agreed to do The Quiet One to tell his “story right. I’ve had an unusual life… The best thing about working on the documentary was re-living the nice times. The worst was getting emotional at times… But I can’t get everything into the film that I hoped for. My life is a bit like War and Peace.”
