Bob Seger & his Silver Bullet Band were part of the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival for less than a week.
Seger and company -- in the midst of his Final Tour farewell trek -- were named as part of the lineup for this year's edition of the historic festival, taking place April 25-28 and May 2-5. The group has now bowed out owing to an unspecified "scheduling conflict."
Seger next plays Saturday, Jan. 19, in Columbus, and currently has dates booked through mid-March, with a lone May 2 show in Texas. No Detroit-area shows have yet been announced.
Full dates can be found at bobseger.com.
