Bob Seger Tour 2011 – Is he coming to a place near you?

Bob Segar officially announced his plans for a North American tour that starts in March 2011.

Bob Seger teased his fanbase with a hint on his website yesterday and today a teaser video was posted which shows a blank map with different states highlighted.

Is he ready for it?

In an article yesterday by Detroit Free Press, Seger is mentioned discussing how mentally and physically challenging a tour can be:

“I’ve got to build up my stamina, my wind, my physical ability to do a live show, because people are going to expect a certain amount of energy,” he said in the days before his 2006 kickoff. “The band is certainly able to deliver it. I have to step up to the plate and get there.”

Although the tour is more than likely going to be fairly long only four states have been announced thus far:

  • Ohio
  • Michigan
  • New York
  • Missouri

The press release that announced the Seger and his Silver Bullet Band tour said that dates will be announced shortly. It also stated:

“Fans can expect to see and hear Seger’s timeless classics like ‘Night Moves’ and ‘Old Time Rock & Roll’ alongside a preview of new songs from his forthcoming as yet untitled new release.”

This is the first time hitting the road in four years.

Are you excited about the Bob Seger tour? Will you attend a show?

  3. HELL YES!!!! 2006-2007 tour I attended 16 shows! Had to quit my job to do it to. Never regreted a minute of it either. Saw all 7 shows in Detroit. Will again too. EVERYONE should go see at least one Bob Seger show. It is WELL worth the time and money.

  4. We flew from England as well to Boston in Jan 2007 for the last tour. We will be there again at one of the concerts this time as well

  5. please come to san diego or somewhere close to it


    Ive been waiting for this and i definately will be there. Seems like they keep getting better.

  7. Saw Bob in Denver in the late ’70’s. We had obstructed view seats in the nosebleeds, and it was still the very best concert I had ever been to. I became a Seger fan to the core and I am awed and inspired by to this day. I always hoped I’d get to see him live again and I will go where ever I have to.

  8. Yes, cannot wait. Love him to death….

  9. I hope he comes to the South! I live in Birmingham, but will travel within reason to see him. I saw Bob Seger in Memphis, Tennessee in 1994 and it was a fantastic concert.

    I have been a fan since the 70’s. The last concert I saw was in Chicago in2006. It was one of the best ones I saw! He looks old now, but sounded fantastic and did a great set list. Everyone was on there feet, dancing during the whole show.( Not like these lame concerts today where everyone sits cause they are out of shape!)His music makes us all feel like we are young and strong!

  11. Please come within 300 miles of Boise, Idaho! I’ll be there! Hollywood Nights!

    I”ve seen him live 8 times and absolutely there will be a 9th, his music is timeless, uplifting, the kind of music that EVERYONE has been able to relate to. His songwriting covers experinces, feelings and situations we can all say, hey, I”ve been through that, as though he knows that we have, and he is saying – this one is for you! First saw him at the Goose Lake Festival in 69 or 70, his heart and soul poured out onto that stage back then. A down to earth man and a musical legend. We love him and he loves his fans…like the music that pours from his soul!

  22. bobbie pierce says:

    We saw Bob’s concert in Memphis and Little Rock. We now live in South Arkansas and would like to know when he will be in our area.

  23. eileen jordan says:

    My husband and I have been waiting for you to tour; we missed your concert in. 2006. Looking forward to seeing you in Milw or Chgo. Thx Bob; can’t wait to rock with you again!

  24. Loring Glover says:

    Yes indeedy. What a rocker! I’ve seen Bob three times. I’m not one to stand up when you can see sitting down, but when Bobby is rockin’, I’m up like everyone else…and I don’t sit down until the show is over.
    Let the good times roll.

  25. Bob Seger was my first concert ever. I was in 4th grade in 1976ish and went with my parents in south bend IN. Saw him again in Chicago on the face the promise tour and it was awesome! Will definitely see him in 2011!!!!!!!!!
