Did you see Bob Seger perform in Livingston County?

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.

  1. There’s a picture of a White House on the album back in 72 by Bob Seger. that house was located on Lee road directly behind the 7-Eleven it is no longer there and has long ago been torn down but it is proof that Seger had intimate ties to Livingston county. My father finally remember seeing him at the Howell armory for the price of $0.50 with a student ID.

What do you think?
