Vedder was due to kick off the 15-date tour in Las Vegas on April 10.

The Pearl Jam singer is suffering from temporary nerve damage in his right arm after a back injury last year.

In a statement, his manager Kelly Curtis says, “After having worked aggressively with doctors and physical therapists for the last eight weeks to repair the damage, the intensity of the injury and time needed to heal has made it impossible to play the shows as scheduled. There was hope up until the last minute that the treatments would be successful. Sincerest apologies go out to those who have made plans and bought tickets. Eddie is frustrated beyond measure, but remains positive that come this summer all will be back in good form.”

All postponed shows will be rescheduled for November and December. Fans can use their tickets for the new dates or request a refund at the point-of-purchase.
