If Bob Seger has his way, 2016 will be a busy year, with both a new album and a tour. The veteran rocker tells Billboard magazine that he's been updating some of his unreleased material for an album to be called "I Knew You When" -- including the title track, which reportedly dates back to the late 90s. No release date has been determined, however. His most recent album, "Ride Out," came out during October of 2014. On top of that Seger -- who wrapped up his Ride Out Tour in March -- says he plans to hit the road again for a "bucket-list tour" that will included places he's long wanted to play, including the Hollywood Bowl and the New Orleans Jazz Fest. Seger was in New York on Thursday night, Nov. 19, to receive the Legend of Live Award at the 12th annual Billboard Touring Conference & Awards. He was presented the award by Bob Roux of Live Nation Entertainment and thanked all of those he's worked with over the years, calling out members of the Silver Bullet Band -- many who were in attendance -- by name. Seger also said that his favorite thing about performing these days is seeing his wife Nita and children Cole and Samantha in the audience. Seger recalled to Billboard that at a Detroit Tigers game during the early 90s, then-manager Sparky Anderson told him, "Bob, I want your job. Nobody hates you. Guys like the Eagles, Billy Joel and myself, we are fortunate. People never hate us."
