Bob Seger & The Silver Bullet Band have rolled out their two final hometown stops at Clarkston, Michigan's DTE Energy Music Theatre for June 19th and 21st. DTE is 40 miles outside of Detroit and the city's main live outdoor venue, best known for years as “Pine Knob.” The shows, which will be the final pair in a six-night run, go on sale to the general public on Saturday, March 16th at 10 a.m. There's been no word as to whether these are the final dates of the entire Roll Me Away tour, or just Seger's final Detroit-area concerts.
Seger's management issued a statement to The Detroit Free Press about the dates, saying: “While we wish we could go on forever, these two additional shows will be Seger’s final 'Pine Knob' shows of the 'Roll Me Away Tour.'”
Bob Seger's been writing songs for over 50 years now and we asked him if they come in spurts or all at once: “Yeah, maybe a chorus will pop out in my head. The biggest one was ‘Hollywood Nights.’ Y’know, I just started singin’ it. I had no idea why the song was gonna be like. I was driving up in the Hollywood hills (whispers) ‘Hollywood nights, Hollywood hills, above all the nights, Hollywood nights.’ (Snaps fingers) Bam! Right there. Okay — now how do I get there? (Laughs) Y’know, then you gotta backtrack. But that doesn’t happen very often. But it did that time!”
