Seger took a long break from music after wrapping up a tour in support of his 1995 LP, It's a Mystery. He returned 11 years later with a new album, Face the Promise, and an American tour. He did another tour in 2011 and has been slowly chipping away at a new album, though it's unclear when that will come out.

Generally, Seger's shows focus on his deep catalog of hits, including "Night Moves," "Hollywood Nights," "Turn the Page," "Rock & Roll Never Forgets," "Roll Me Away" and "Old Time Rock & Roll." In a 2011 interview with Rolling Stone, Seger said he didn't know how much longer he was going to remain active. "My career's winding down," he said. "What can I say? I can't do this much longer. My manager is 70. We've been together for 45 years now and we need to stop pretty soon and turn it over to the Kid Rocks and Eminems. I guess we're in the final stages here."

Tickets for most shows will go on sale on January 19th, and Bob Seger fan club members will have early access to tickets at the rocker's website. A full list of dates are below, and more will be announced soon.

Song Stories


The Commodores | 1984

The year after soul legends Marvin Gaye and Jackie Wilson died, songwriter Dennis Lambert asked members of the Commodores to give him a tape of ideas. "And the one from Walter Orange has this wonderful bass line," said co-writer Franne Golde. "Plus the lyric, 'Marvin, he was a friend of mine' ... Within 10 minutes, we had decided it should be something like a modern R&B version of 'Rock 'n' Roll Heaven,' and I just said, 'Nightshift.'" This tribute to the recently deceased musicians was the band's only hit without Lionel Richie, who had left for a solo career.
