BOB SEGER ADDS FOUR STOPS TO ITINERARY

3/6/2013

Bob Seger & The Silver Bullet Band have just added four new shows to their itinerary. New dates now on the books include April 25th in Charlotte, North Carolina; April 27th in Raleigh, North Carolina; April 30th in Norfolk, Virginia; and May 5th in University Park, Pennsylvania.

As always, a highlight of all of Seger's shows is the nightly performance of "Night Moves." We asked him to tell us the back-story to the 1976 classic, which came to define his '70s era. He told us it was pulled directly from his teen days back in Michigan: "Basically, what we'd do, we'd go out and get in a farmer's field outside of Ann Arbor, Michigan where I grew up -- I was born in Detroit, but I grew up in Ann Arbor, Michigan. And there were all these farmer's fields out there, and we would just pick one at random, hoping that nobody caught us, and put our cars in a circle, and the headlights would shine in on everybody having the party, and we would dance and we would play this guy's record player -- the 45's, the stuff of the day. And the girls loved the Ronettes records -- y'know like, 'Be My Baby' and things like that, and we would dance and just go wild out in the field, and we called them 'grassers.'"
