Bob Seger: Live in Concert
He's taken his last bow and retired from touring, but you can hear a vintage 1980 Seger show from the Boston Garden this week on Live in Concert.
Against the Wind not only went to #1 for Bob Seger and the Silver Bullet Band, it bested Pink Floyd's The Wall to get the coveted top spot. The album was rewarded with a Grammy for Best Rock performance by a Duo or Group. Not everyone liked the record, though,
I'd like to say that this is not only the worst record Bob Seger has ever made, but an absolutely cowardly one as well.
-Rolling Stone's Dave Marsh
This week on Live in Concert, hear Bob Seger and the Silver Bullet perform "You'll Accompany Me" and the title track from Against the Wind, plus nine other favorites from classic albums like Stranger in Town, Night Moves, Beautiful Loser, and more as we present Bob Seger recorded live on October 6, 1980. It was the middle night of three sold-out shows at the Boston Garden. They don't make 'em like this anymore.
Another Michigan connection on this week's Live in Concert as we feature Journey recorded at Cobo Arena on August 5, 1980. You would expect to hear the crowd shout out the "South Detroit" line from "Don't Stop Believin'," but that song wasn't released until the next year. The Rolling Stones have a trio of songs from their canon taped at a Twickenham Stadium show in London, 2003, plus Eric Clapton and Steve Winwood team up on "Forever Man" and "Dear Mr. Fantasy" form their incredible tour together.
While a few live concerts are finally popping up on the 2021 calendar, we've always got the classic shows from the vault on Live in Concert every Saturday night at 8 on RKR.
