One of Michigan’s Best Concerts Ever Was Seeing Bob Seger
It's not that I want to spend a lot of time giving you all the facts about the one and only Bob Seger, but I would like to tell you that Bob Seger and the Silver Bullet Band put on one of the best shows I've ever seen in Michigan.
Overall I can say I've seen Bob Seger in concert at least 5 times.
Believe it or not, the first time I went to see Bob Seger was back in the late '70s. One of my former program director's told me about how good Bob Seger was in concert, and he even got me tickets to see the show.
Here's the best part, my boss took me with his family to see Bob Seger and the Silver Bullet Band at Pine Knob, which is now called DTE Energy Music Theater.
I was only 22 years old when I went to see Bob Seger for the very first time and at that time, I just started working full time on a radio station in Lansing from 6 p.m. until 10 p.m.
That night at the concert at Pine Knob it was completely sold out. And I kept wondering what kind of show is this guy going to put on?
Bob Seger had everyone on their feet singing all of his classic hits including Old Time Rock and Roll, Travelin' Man, Turn the Page, Still The Same, and many others.
Since then I've seen Bob Seger on four different occasions. One of them was right here in East Lansing at the Breslin Center where I actually had front row seats and to top it all off, got to meet Bob Seger after the concert that same night at the Breslin Center.
These are concert memories I will hold onto for a lifetime.
I could go on and on about how many great songs Bob Seger has recorded over the years and believe me, it would be worth it. But I thought it would be nice if you would take a listen to a few of my favorite Bob Seger songs of all time.
