Bob Seger

(UPDATE: 1/20) Bob Seger's “Ride Out” tour was unquestionably one of the hottest on the road throughout 2014 and demand for Bob Seger tickets in 2015 has even eclipsed the 2014 mark.

After exactly one month off, Bob Seger and the Silver Bullet Band are set to kick off the 2015 leg of “Ride Out” and anticipation is surely growing. During a November and December run in 2014, Bob Seger tickets averaged $196.57 on the secondary market. According to TicketIQ.com, the secondary market demand in 2015 has caused prices to jump 16% to a $228.98 tour average.

Of the 2015 dates, 4 performances carry an average asking price above $300, with the most expensive date coming February 21st at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas. At an average price of $514.43 it's by far the most expensive of both the 2014 and 2015 legs. Conversely, January 27th at the Charleston Civic Center is Seger's cheapest 2015 date at $116.21. It just misses being the cheapest date overall, with December 17th at the First Niagara Center costing an average of $115.59 per ticket.

Having just completed the first leg of his ‘Ride Out’ North American tour, one of Detroit’s biggest rock exports has now extended the second leg with the release of new dates for six additional shows.

The veteran singer-songwriter, who will return to the road at Toledo’s Huntington Center on January 20, was initially scheduled to conclude his latest trek at Vancouver’s Rogers Arena on March 7.

But Seger and his regular backing group, The Silver Bullet Band, will now wrap up at The Palace of Auburn Hills on March 26 instead following extra shows at Salt Lake City’s Energy Solutions Arena on Mar 13, Lincoln’s Pinnacle Bank Arena on Mar 15, Sioux Falls’ Denny Sanford Center on Mar 17, Kansas City’s Sprint Center on Mar 20 and Indianapolis’ Bankers Life Fieldhouse on Mar 22.

Bob Seger tickets for the tour’s finale are available on TicketIQ at a get-in price of $195, and there are also plenty on offer for over a dozen of his earlier shows including Pittsburgh’s Consol Energy Center on Jan 22 ($138), Columbus’ Nationwide Arena on Jan 29 ($99) and Lafayette’s Cajundome on February 10 ($90).

Fans with Bob Seger tickets should of course expect to hear all the highlights from his current album, Ride Out, which gave him the highest debut of his career when it peaked at No.3 on the Billboard 200 back in October.

But alongside his covers of John Hiatt’s “Detroit Made,” Wilco and Billy Bragg’s “California Stars,” and Steve Earle’s “The Devil’s Right Hand,” Seger’s recent run of shows have also included a whole host of his classic hits including “Night Moves,” “Against The Wind” and “We’ve Got Tonight.”


Bob Seger Announces Upcoming Tour Dates

The legendary Bob Seger is going on tour this Fall/Winter in support of his seventeenth album Ride Out. The album is rumored to be Seger’s last and is due out on October 14th on Capitol Records. This is the first extensive tour for the 69 year old since 2006, which hits 23 North American cities.

The tour starts on November 19th in Bob Seger’s home state of Michigan at The Dow Event Center in Saginaw. After a two ate excursion to the Canadian Maritimes Bob Seger heads to Boston on November 29th to play the TD Garden.

The tour kicks off the month of December with a show in Albany, New York at the Times Union Center. This show has the cheapest average ticket price of the tour with a price set at $125.78, this is far below the tour average price for Bob Seger tickets, which is $198.97. On December 9th Seger returns to his home state of Michigan one last time to play a show in Grand Rapids at the Van Andel Arena. On December 19th the tour heads back to New York this time in Manhattan to play Madison Square Garden. This show has by far the most expensive ticket price at $350.48 so it may be savvy for fans to drive the three hours north to the Albany show. The tour comes to an end on February 27th in Los Angeles at a to be announced venue. A complete list of known tour dates can be seen below:
