Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder has announced the postponement of his spring solo tour due to temporary nerve damage in his right arm resulting from a recent back injury. The 22 shows, spread out over 15 cities, have been pushed back to the late fall and will now begin at the Pearl in Las Vegas on October 31st. One show, a planned appearance at the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival, has been cancelled entirely.

"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," Pearl Jam manager Kelly Curtis explained in a statement. "There was hope up until the last minute that the treatments would be successful."

Vedder's revised tour itinerary is below, with the original tour date followed by the new date at the venue. Tickets for the original dates will be honored at these gigs and refunds will be made by request.

Nelly Furtado with Timbaland | 2006

This club-oriented single featuring Timbaland, who produced Nelly Furtado's third album, Loose, was Furtado’s sexy return after the Canadian singer's exploration of her Portuguese heritage on Folklore. "In the studio, initially I didn’t know if I could do it, 'cause Timbaland wrote that chorus," Furtado said. "I'm like, 'That's cool, but I don't know if I'm ready to do full-out club.'" The flirty lyrics are a dance between a guy and girl, each knowing they will end up in bed together but still playing the game. "Tim and I called it 'The BlackBerry Song,' she said, "because everything we say in the song you could text-message to somebody."
