Bob Seger: Live in Concert
This week, it's a made in Michigan edition of Live in Concert with Bob Seger from Cobo and Grand Funk recorded live at The Palace of Auburn Hills.
From 2648 W. Grand Blvd to 8 Mile, Michigan has a rich musical history. This Saturday night, we turn it up on Live in Concert. Bob Seger is one of Michigan's most iconic rockers, with his personal stories of growing up in Ann Arbor and Detroit resonating with audiences across the country. Bob Seger and the Silver Bullet Band played an incredible run of 6 mind-blowing nights of sold-out concerts at Cobo Arena in Detroit in June of 1980. Against the Wind, the follow up to Stranger in Town had just hit record store shelves and the copies didn't stay there long. Hear classics like "Turn the Page," "Against the Wind," "Night Moves" and more performed for a hometown crowd that energized the performers.
Meanwhile, just a few miles Northwest on of Detroit I-75, the blue-collar town of Flint Michigan had three favorite sons that had plenty of success of their own. Mark Farner, Don Brewer and Mel Schacher twisted Grand Trunk Railroad into Grand Funk and sold out arenas around the world. How big were these guys? At one point, they broke The Beatles attendance record at Shea Stadium. Saturday night, listen for "We're an American Band," "Bad Time" and "I'm Your Captain/Closer To Home" recorded not far from home at The Palace of Auburn Hills.
A pair of live hits- signature songs from Loverboy and REO Speedwagon round out this week's lineup of Live in Concert. Don't miss it this Saturday night at 8, exclusively on Kalamazoo's Rock Station 107.7 RKR.
