Exclusive: Bob Seger Tour Details

Both shows are pretty close to Seger's homebase in Michigan, and both are in relatively tiny arenas. Expect them both to sell out extremely quickly. As we reported last week, Seger plans on playing 20 to 30 concerts in this spring. When it wraps he will continue work on his new album before returning to the road in the fall.

Song Stories

“Try a Little Tenderness”

Otis Redding | 1966

This pop standard had been previously recorded by dozens of artists, including by Bing Crosby 33 years before Otis Redding, who usually wrote his own songs, cut it. It was actually Sam Cooke’s 1964 take, which Redding’s manager played for Otis, that inspired the initially reluctant singer to take on the song. Isaac Hayes, then working as Stax Records’ in-house producer, handled the arrangement, and Booker T. and the MG’s were the backing band. Redding’s soulful version begins quite slowly and tenderly itself before mounting into a rousing, almost religious “You’ve gotta hold her, squeeze her …” climax. “I did that damn song you told me to do,” Redding told his manager. “It’s a brand new song now.”
