, Staff

Bob Seger has revealed plans to return to the road with the Silver Bullet Band, as well as release a brand new album in 2011. The tour, Seger’s first since 2006, will hit the TD Garden in Boston on Friday, April 15. Tickets for show, all of which are priced at $75, will go on sale Saturday at 10 a.m. through Live Nation.

Today, the classic rock legend gave fans a taste of his forthcoming studio album by releasing “Downtown Train”, a cover of the 1985 Tom Waits tune. A release date for the untitled album has not been announced. On the upcoming tour, fans can expect to hear Seger’s timeless classics like “Night Moves” and “Old Time Rock & Roll” alongside a preview of new songs from the forthcoming release. Seger, 65, hasn’t released an album of original material since 2006’s Face The Promise. He did appear on fellow Detroit rocker Kid Rock’s most recent album Born Free, playing piano on “Collide”, which also features Sheryl Crow on vocals.

Seger and his Silver Bullet Band’s legendary live performances led to record sales in excess of 50 million including 11 platinum and seven multi-platinum RIAA-certified album sales awards. Seger holds the distinction in 2010 for the #1 Catalog Album of the Decade for his Greatest Hits, which has sold over nine million copies in the United States to date, posting an unbroken 16-year streak on Billboard’s Top 200 Albums and Catalog Albums charts.
