Bummer news: Pearl Jam frontdude Eddie Vedder has canned his spring solo tour—the one with him playing his ukulele on tracks from his ukulele album, Ukulele Songs (dude loves that uke)—because of nerve damage to his right arm, reports the Hollywood Reporter

EdVed has been undergoing "aggressive" physical therapy, but his docs didn't think he was ready for the road. Vedder is apparently "frustrated beyond measure." The singer's docs, however, are calling the nerve damage temporary, so the 23-date trek, slated to kick off April 10 in Las Vegas, has been delayed to the fall. Check out the new dates here. Glen Hansard of the Swell Season is still opening the fall trek, too. But if you can't make the fall dates, you can get your tickets refunded. Go to Pearl Jam's website for details.

For an idea of what, exactly, you'll be missing this spring, watch Vedder's uke performance on Letterman below.
