Bob Seger announces farewell tour

on September 18, 2018, 10:14am

The Travelin’ Man’s time on the road is coming to an end: Bob Seger’s upcoming tour with the Silver Bullet Band will be his last.

Come November, Seger and the Silver Bullet Band will embark on what’s being billed as a farewell tour. As of now, the itinerary spans 27 dates stretching into May 2019. See the full docket below, and grab tickets here.

In today’s announcement, Seger did not provide a specific reason for his decision to cease touring. However, as Rolling Stone points out, the 73-year-old Rock and Roll Hall of Famer has mentioned retirement as far back as 2011, saying at the time: “I can’t do this much longer. My manager is 70. We’ve been together for 45 years now and we need to stop pretty soon and turn it over to the Kid Rocks and Eminems. I guess we’re in the final stages here. When I got offstage the other night I said to my security guy, ‘That was surreal. I can’t believe I just did a full-on rock show.’ It’s just surreal.” Last year, Seger was forced to postpone several tour dates in order to have back surgery to repair a ruptured disc.
