Default Bob Seger

Ol' Rapid Robert has (kinda) committed to a tour starting in March. Another one of my favorite singer/songwriters, and featuring great sax player Alto Reed. I saw him in the 80s and again during his Face The Promise tour of a few years ago. A fantastic performer, and a seemingly good-guy.

The Mountain audio only, has Bob trading licks with some guitar player dude who sounds familiar....

Thanks for posting that, Deb. Bob is also on my "bucket" list of shows to see. I would love for him to schedule something in the Mid-Atlantic.

I just saw this in the newspaper tonight. I'm hopeful and excited! Saw him in 2006 and he was fantastic!

dreamer, I hope you get a chance to see him - he will not disappoint.

I wish he'd come to Australia. I think he is a great singer-songwriter. I also wish that he would work with Glenn again someday.

I heard about the Seger tour today too... If he comes to Peoria or Springfield or somewhere close, I will be there.

Bob Seger's tour has started:

http://www.undercover.fm/news/14258-...ck-on-the-road

The setlist includes my four least favourite songs from my least favourite of his albums; namely Her Strut, Good For Me, Betty Lou's Gettin' Out Tonight & The Horizontal Bop from Against The Wind. I'm not a big fan of Come To Poppa or Sunspot Baby either. Oh well.

I love "Against the Wind" - I've loved it ever since I first heard it on the Forrest Gump soundtrack. I love it even more knowing Glenn is on it!

But Glenn is also on Shame On The Moon (from The Distance), which is much better in my opinion.
