Bob Seger announces farewell tour

Bob Seger has announced dates for his farewell US tour.

The Detroit rocker – who postponed concerts last fall when he underwent surgery on a ruptured disc in his back in the middle of the Runaway Train tour, with some shows rescheduled recently – has expanded the series and renamed the trek Travelin Man: The Final Tour after a song from his 1975 album, “Beautiful Loser.”

Set to begin in Grand Rapids, MI on November 21, tickets for the new dates in Buffalo, Cleveland, Louisville, Fort Wayne, Peoria, Grand Rapids and rescheduled shows in Dallas and Houston will go on sale Friday, September 28, with tickets for new dates in Toledo and Nashville available Saturday, September 29.

Additional shows will be announced in the coming weeks, including stops in Las Vegas, Fresno, San Diego, Vancouver, Florida and more.

A Bob Seger fan club presale starts September 25; details and tickets for all shows are available via BobSeger.com and the usual outlets.

A collection of vintage Seger material is featured on the newly-released set, “Heavy Music: The Complete Cameo Recordings 1966-1967.”

The package presents the series of singles Seger issued with his band, The Last Heard, one of several local Detroit groups the rocker worked with prior to his 1969 breakthrough with the Bob Seger System and the hit, “Ramblin’ Gamblin’ Man.”
