Seger's eager to tour
Seger's eager to tour Detroit rock legend ready for spotlight A ton of restless Bob Seger fans may be on the cusp of relief. The Detroit rocker said it's all but a done deal that he'll tour this winter, more than a decade after his last, record-breaking concert trek. With his new album, "Face the Promise," set to hit stores (last) Tuesday, Seger and his band have quietly been revving up for a series of live dates -- what could be the long-awaited answer for devotees who have increasingly clamored to get the 61-year-old star back on the road. Any tour announcement would come by the end of this month, a Seger representative said. A couple dozen dates have been proposed, Seger said -- far fewer than the 1996 outing that put the rocker on 65 stages in six months. That blockbuster run included eight sold-out Detroit-area shows and what Palace of Auburn Hills officials still describe as the biggest concert run in venue history. More than 100,000 seats sold within an hour.
