Heartland Rocker Bob Seger Is Back

Updated: December 10, 2014

The man who defined the musical landscape of heartland rock is back in all his authentic glory for what just might be his last album (and last tour) ever!

Throughout the 70s, 80s, and the early 90s, Bob Seger and the Silver Bullet Band topped the charts with hit after hit. Their sound was infectious, and their charisma was irresistible. With groundbreaking albums such as 1976’s Night Moves, 1978’s Stranger in Town, 1980’s Against the Wind, and 1982’s The Distance, Bob Seger and his band exhibited their prolific sound, heartwarming integrity, and unquestionable authenticity. Smash hits such as “Shakedown”, “Shame on the Moon”, “We’ve Got Tonight”, “Like a Rock”, and the iconic “Old Time Rock and Roll” (which was named one of the Songs of the Century in 2001) cemented Seger’s status as an icon, and made him deserving of his eventual induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and the Songwriters Hall of Fame.

In October 2014, Seger returned to the music scene with the highly-anticipated Ride Out, his first release of new material in eight years. The album is comprised of four cover songs and six Seger originals. The covers include John Hiatt’s “Detroit Made” and Steve Earle’s “The Devil’s Right Hand”, while the six original compositions include “Hey Gypsy”, “You Take Me In”, and “Gates of Eden”.

In 2013, Seger stated that Ride Out may be his final album, and that the album’s supporting tour may be his last. You can celebrate Seger’s illustrious career and tremendous talent when he takes over venues such as Toronto’s Air Canada Centre and Vancouver’s Rogers Arena!

It’s time to rock out with the heart and soul of Detroit, one last time.
