He may be riding the long, lonesome highway for a tour across western Canada right now, but Bob Seger might be turning the page in the near future. The legendary singer-songwriter says his live touring may see its last leg soon.
“I’m definitely nearing the end,” Seger said from his studio in Michigan, according to a report from Jam! Showbiz. “I’ve had a wonderful, wonderful run and my audiences have just kept coming and it’s really nice but all good things have come to an end.”
Seger, 67, also said he doesn’t see himself touring when he’s 70. He turns 68 on May 6, so his live career appears to have a shelf life of about two years at the longest.
He last played Boston two years ago on April 15 at the TD Garden. We should expect at least one more run from Seger and the Silver Bullet Band before he calls it quits – maybe this summer at the Comcast Center or Bank of America Pavilion?
One important detail is that Seger believes he’s nearing the end of only his touring career. He has no plans to stop recording music, and one-off concerts can’t be ruled out either. Here’s hoping for Seger at Fenway sometime soon.
