Bob Seger tour dates are forthcoming after the singer announced that he will go on tour with his band this fall. Bob Seger and the Silver Bullet Band rarely go on tour and the last Bob Seger tour in 2006-07 was though to be his last.
Fans of Bob Seger will remember the great album “Live Bullet”, recorded live at Cobo Hall in Detroit, Michigan, Bob’s home state. Seger will perform many of the hits from that live album on the road in 2010 including “Travelin’ Man”, “Beautiful Loser” and “Turn the Page”.
It’s amazing, but back in 1976 when Bob Seger and the Silver Bullet Band were hitting it big, they were making peanuts compared to the millions that artist command today. In the 1976 issue of Rolling Stone, Bob was commenting on the current tour and the money he was going to make, “At this point we’re sitting pretty good,” he adds, on the eve of his biggest gig, at Pontiac Stadium. “We’ll be Number 41 with a bullet in Billboard next week,” he reports with enthusiasm. “We’re hot and we’re going right into the summer. We’re gonna be making quite a bit of money” His $100,000 minimum at Pontiac compares with $3500-$5000 that the band usually makes as an opening act these days.
Bob Seger tour dates have not been announced yet, but the hope is that this is not a Live Nation tour because of the recent dramatic ticket price hikes and packages that have dramatically escalated the cost of attending a concert, and limited the public’s access to cheap quality tickets. Keep it real Bob, and stay the hell away from the greed that is ruining music today.
