Lots of big musical acts have played in Livingston County. You can read about some of them here.
But did Bob Seger ever perform here?
Rumors persist that Seger — one of Michigan’s favorite musical sons — played in Livingston County. We’ve heard Seger rocked the Howell Armory, and we’ve heard he played the Main Event Night Club in Brighton; but we’ve been unable to confirm that he played at either venue, or any other in Livingston County.
We love to think that Seger — who spent his formative musical years in Ann Arbor, where he graduated from Pioneer High School — performed in Livingston County because how cool would that be? But we can find no proof.
If you did indeed see this member of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and the Songwriters Hall of Fame perform at the Howell Armory or the Main Event — or anywhere else in Livingston County, for that matter — please let us know.
If you haven’t seen Bob Seger in concert, but you’d like to, your last chance is happening right now. The 73-year-old Seger is in the midst of his retirement tour, which kicked off Nov. 21 in Grand Rapids and doesn’t include a single date in Detroit or the Detroit area. (Am I the only person who finds that odd?) You can get more information on Seger’s Traveling Man Tour — including how to get tickets — by clicking here.
