Bob Seger and the Silver Bullet Band 17th October 1977

Bob Seeger and the Silver Bullet Band 17th October 1977
seegertixBob Seeger was the business; pure class. He did a short tour of the UK in 1977, calling at Manchester, Newcastle, Glasgow and London. This was before he had big success, and as I recall the Newcastle concert, which I attended, was far from full. The guy was awesome. I would love to see him again.
I don’t recall what they played but I found a listing from a bootleg, which was recorded in the Boston in the same year. I would imagine the set would have been something like this: Rock And Roll Never Forgets; Travelin’ Man; Beautiful Loser; Turn The Page; Sunspot Baby; Ship Of Fools; Main Street; Come To Poppa; Mary Lou; Sunburst; Ramblin’ Gamblin’ Man; Heavy Music; Katmandu; Night Moves; Let It Rock Medley.
Seger is performing again in the US; hope he comes back to the UK one day.

    I too would love to seehim again – but just have a nagging doubt it might be a disappointment & I’d wish I’d stuck with the memory of him in his prime – a bit like Johnny Winter when he toured last year!
    On the other hand, he could be like Neil Young, just better & better every time he tours!

    Yeah I was there that night, it was far from full, but they put on a great show. Don’t think he is ever going to tour the UK again. It was family at first then ill health, just not going to happen. Would like to see a pro shot DVD/Bluray.
