Bob Seger & the Silver Bullet Band are going out, as the song says, on the road again.
After announcing a pair of hometown Detroit-area shows during May, Seger and company have revealed a full-scale 24-date Runaway Train Tour, starting Aug. 24 in Toledo, Ohio, and wrapping up Oct. 28 in Phoenix, although the announcement promises that "additional cities" will be added. Seger fan club pre-sales for many of the concerts begin June 6, with public on-sales starting June 9.
These will be Seger & the Silver Bullets' first live dates since finishing the Ride Out Tour on March 30, 2015, in Indianapolis. During November of that year Seger received the Billboard Legend of Live Award. "I've been (playing live) for so long; it's really what I got into this (music) to do," Seger told Billboard during the Ride Out Tour. "I like writing songs best of all, but you never lose that thrill of taking those (songs) you worked on and labored over and playing them for a live audience and seeing how they react." Seger also acknowledged that that he's "probably the least crazy about being on the road of anybody in the band," but the members of the Silver Bullet Band keep him coming back to the road.
