In 1977 Bob Seger and his Silver Bullet Band sold out the DTE Energy Music Theatre in Detroit for 8 consecutive nights. It would take 36 years for an artist to match that, when Motor City native Kid Rock managed the same feet earlier this month.
As a surprise to his fans, Rock brought up Seger as a special guest for the encore. Rock and Seeger did “Old Time Rock And Roll,” and “All Summer Long” to the cheers of an ecstatic crowd.
Rock and Seger have shared the stage on a couple of occasions earlier in the year, and they’ve made guest appearances on each other’s albums. Speaking to Classic Rock after the show Kid Rock said he’s open to future collaborations with Seger: “I’m sure there’s more for us to do. Those shows went so great. It was beyond mind-blowing. There’s definitely something there.”
Bob Seger is getting ready to head back in the studio to work on a follow-up to 2006’s Face The Promise. Although no release date has been set, Seger has been playing the song “All of the Roads” during his latest tour, which is supposed to be included on the new album.
