Bob Seger and his Silver Bullet Band are headed out, as the song says, on the road again.

For one last time.

Seger's upcoming Travelin' Man Tour is being billed as "one last...final tour...giving fans one more opportunity to see Seger and the band live." The tour kicks off Nov. 21 in Grand Rapids and currently has dates booked until May 2 in Houston. Sixteen of the shows have already been announced as makeups for the concerts Seger postponed on his 2017 Runaway Train Tour in order to undergo spinal surgery. An additional 10 dates are going on sale Sept. 28 and 29, with a fan club pre-sale on Sept. 25.

Details have been posted at BobSeger.com after a countdown clock teasing the announcement appeared on the site.

No Detroit area shows have been mentioned; Seger played the final show at the Palace of Auburn Hills last Sept. 23, two weeks after playing the DTE Energy Music Theatre. The announcement promises more shows will be announced "in the coming weeks, including for Las Vegas, San Diego, Vancouver, cities in Florida, Fresno, Calif. and others.

Seger -- who's been inducted into both the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and the Songwriters Hall of Fame -- has been talking about retiring from the road for more than 30 years but especially since the release of 2006's "Face the Promise" album. Prior to 2014's "Face The Promise" he noted that, "I don't know how much more there is to prove. I wouldn't mind putting out one more record, one last swan song....I've had a great career. It's been a great run. It's amazing how much airplay we've gotten down through the years. I don't want to overstay my welcome."

Seger's latest album, "I Knew You When," came out last Nov. 17, after the tour had been postponed and he'd already undergone successful cervical laminectomy surgery. The album debuted at No. 1 on the Top Current Rock Albums chart, No. 2 on the Top Rock Albums chart and No. 25 on the Billboard 200. Seger subsequently offered another song from the sessions, "Finding Out," as a free download, while the compilation "Heavy Music: The Complete Cameo Recordings 1966-1967," was released on Sept. 7.
