Bob Seger & The Silver Bullet Band Tickets, Tour Dates 2018 & Shows
Robert Seger is a singer/songwriter from Lincoln Park, Michigan, USA and was originally from Lincoln Park on May 6, 1945. In 1974, after years of local acclaim, he founded his accompaniment group Silver Bullet Band and within two years became one of the most popular American hearttland rocker. So, in the aftermath of the popularization of Rock and Pop, there were performers like Bob Seger, who in 1974 played in a crowded arena of 78,000 fans in his home Michigan, and then fewer to a thousand spectators in near Chicago the following one.
Dearborn, Michigan, and was purchased from the sixth year in Ann Arbor. In 1957 and 1961, he founded his first group, The Decibels, in which he recorded his first album, "Come Go With Me" by The Del-Vikings. Seger is perhaps the only ever songwriter in our story to have his first track play on the air with The Decibels.
However, it should not be permanent, and the decibels were soon dissolved. Then Seger went on to join another popular vocal group, The Town Criers, whose triumph led to the first signs of a community of fans that would dominate his early years. Then Seger quit The Criers to join Doug Brown And The Omens, an apparel on which he sang leads over a few beat and blue cover songs every single gig they played.
As he sang for The Omens, Seger encountered a man who would eventually determine his future carrier, his longtime executive Edward "Punch" Andrews. Seger first wrote for the other bands Andrews led, and later became Seger's executive director and recorded a number of Seger album. Seger's choice to start a solo-career came from a track of his so-called "East Side Story", which was initially composed for another Michigan group, The Underdogs, which had a small local hits and was looking for another one.
Unwavering and believing in the tune, Seger resolved to publish it in 1966 as Bob Seger and The Last Heard. Published under its own name, it became exactly the kind of Hit that the Unddogs didn't have, sold 50,000 units in the Detroit area and signed a recording deal with Cameo-Parkway Records.
Seger published another fourgles on the Cameo Parkway, and it seemed as if he was making a big break through nationally, but unfortunately the record company collapsed while his Heavy Music at #103 blocked Billboard's bottom "Bubbling Under" charts. With Capitol, singer/songwriter Tom Neme was pushed into the system and started to write and sing leads for the tracks that made up their follow-up record "Noah".
Unnecessary to say that the disk was full because it could not be chartered anywhere in a hoof, Seger briefly left the band to go to college. In 1970 he was back, but also the follow-up Mongrel was a business disaster and the group broke up. In the following year Seger's attempts to release a solistic acoustical CD "Brand New Morning" also failed and he was cancelled by Capitol Records.
Overall, it was a rather disastrous pair of years, but Seger was made of thicker material than that. So Seger got back on his feet and played with the Teegarden & Van Winkle duet, spent 1971 and'72 with them on recordings and tours, but when'72 came to an end, he started to put together a new backing group.
In 1974, after several unsuccessful attempts, he made his debut with the Silver Bullet Band, which toured and recorded for the next two years, but it was not until 1976 that they met Pay-Dirt with the record "Live Bullets". Seger had seen such opportunities before that went through his rags, and he wouldn't let him do the same.
He was a huge success with his follow-up record "Night Moves", his song was placed 4th in the billboard chart and received positive attention everywhere. Seger was a real celebrity and the record itself plunged right into the top ten of the record chart.
