Arena tour will begin in early November.

It appears that Bob Seger will return to the road for the first time in more than 10 years in support of his new Capitol album, "Face the Promise," released last week. The arena tour will begin in early November and Seger will work through most of December, possibly going back out again in January.

The artist last toured in 1996, when he played 64 shows that grossed $26.3 million and drew 923,829, according to Billboard Boxscore.

Seger told Billboard he practices with his band up to six days a week, warming up his voice daily, which he said is necessary now that he is 61. "Joni Mitchell told me my voice is just gonna keep getting lower and lower," he said. When you get older, he pointed out, "everything sinks a little bit."

"Face the Promise," Seger's first album since 1995's "It's a Mystery," boasts guest turns from Kid Rock and Patty Loveless, whom the artist described as "my favorite country singer of all time.
