You didn't really think Bob Seger would go on tour and not play his home town, did you?
Seger -- who hits the road with his Silver Bullet Band on Feb. 27 in Toledo -- has announced an April 11 stop at the Palace of Auburn Hills, with tickets going on sale at 10 a.m. Feb. 16 at the box office and via Ticketmaster, while fan club members will have early access. Prices and support act information will be announced soon.
If past practice holds it won't be the only show Seger plays in the area. There are certainly a window for more dates; Seger and company aren't slated to play again after that until April 16 at the new Barclays Center in Brooklyn. He's also playing a second Toledo show on March 1, as well as a March 5 concert in Grand Rapids.
The Palace date is one of several Seger has added to his Rock And Roll Never Forgets Tour, including Chicago (April 6) and Dayton (April 9). Joe Walsh will open in Chicago, Vancouver (March 27), Seattle (March 29), Portland (March 30), Denver (April 2) and St. Louis (April 4), and Seger will be double-billed with Kid Rock in Minneapolis/St. Paul (March 15) and Fargo, N.D. (March 16).
Seger and the Silver Bullet crew are in the midst of rehearsals for the tour, and he's continuing to work on his next album, the follow-up to 2006's "Face the Promise." Seger also joins John Fogerty for a duet on Creedence Clearwater Revival's "Who'll Stop the Rain" on Fogerty's new album, "Wrote a Song For Everyone," which comes out May 28.
