That's the closest location yet announced for the current tour by the Ann Arbor favorite son and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member. The tour kicks off Feb. 27 with two previously announced dates in Toledo, as well as a Grand Rapids stop March 5.
Tickets for the Palace date go on sale Feb. 16. Ticket prices were not announced today, although the Toledo and Grand Rapids dates cost $70 via Ticketmaster.com
Tickets will be available early to fan club members. Information on joining is available on Seger's website.
Other dates announced today include appearances in Chicago, Brooklyn and Dayton. Those wondering about another homecoming show by Seger, who gave a memorable concert at Eastern Michigan University in 2011, can still hope: Today's announcement also says, "More dates to be announced soon."
Some dates on the current tour—including Chicago, but not Detroit, Grand Rapids or Toledo—will feature Joe Walsh as a special guest.
Today's announcement also says Seger is still working on his long-awaited new album. He has recorded a duet with John Fogerty on "Who'll Stop the Rain," to be released May 28.
Born in Detroit, Seger grew up in Ann Arbor and started his career here. He now lives in Oakland County.
