Bob Seger to Hit the Road?: "We're Looking at Some Dates"

March 26, 2010 4:15 PM ET

This morning Bob Seger called into Detroit disc jockey Dick Purtan's final broadcast — and casually made a huge announcement. "We're thinking about maybe a tour later this year," Seger said. "We're looking at some dates and trying to get some buildings, maybe October-November. We just started three days ago and we'll see what's available, and of course we'll play here [Detroit]... See you at the Palace [of Auburn Hills]."

Seger last hit the road in 2007, which was his first outing in over a decade. Three days ago Walmart began selling Early Seger Vol. 1, a collection of remastered Seger songs from the early 1970s.

“Whoomp! (There It Is)”

Tag Team | 1993

Cecil Glenn — a.k.a., "D.C." — was a cook at Magic City, a nude dance club in Atlanta, when he first heard women shout "Whoomp — there it is!" Inspired by the party chant, he and partner Steve "Roll'n" Gibson wrote a song around it. Undaunted by label rejections, they borrowed $2,500 from Glenn's parents and pressed 800 singles, which quickly sold out in the Atlanta area. A record deal came soon after. Glenn said the song was meant for positive partying. "If you're going to say 'Whoomp there it is,' and you're doing something negative, we'd rather it not have come out of your mouth."
