BOB SEGER & THE SILVER BULLET BAND'S MULTI-PLATINUM 'LIVE BULLET' AND 'NINE TONIGHT' CONCERT ALBUMS Review and Giveaway
REMASTERED WITH BONUS TRACKS RELEASED ON SEPTEMBER 13TH
In preparation for Bob Seger & The Silver Bullet Band’s return to the road this Fall for a second leg to their 2011 North American Tour, Capitol/EMI released Seger’s multi-platinum Live Bullet and Nine Tonight concert albums digitally remastered with exclusive bonus tracks.
Seger’s new tour dates will extend from coast to coast, with stops expected in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Orlando, Dallas, Denver, Columbus, Las Vegas, Vancouver and more. The first leg of Seger’s 2011 Tour drew rave reviews from critics and played to more than 350,000 fans.
Originally released in 1976, Live Bullet was recorded at Cobo Hall in Bob Seger’s hometown of Detroit, Michigan. The album has sold over five million copies and features 14 classics, including “Turn The Page,” “Travelin’ Man/Beautiful Loser,” “Katmandu,” plus a live bonus track exclusive to this newly remastered edition, a rare recording of “I Feel Like Breaking Up Somebody's Home” from Seger’s sold out first stadium show at the Pontiac Silverdome.
Originally released in 1981, Nine Tonight was also recorded, in part, at Detroit’s Cobo Hall, as well as at Boston’s Boston Garden. The five-times platinum album features 16 live hits, including “Old Time Rock And Roll,” “Night Moves,” and “Hollywood Nights,” plus a live bonus track exclusive to this newly remastered edition, “Brave Strangers.”
Both titles were released with restored original artwork and updated packaging and offered in a special CD/T-Shirt Box combination at select retailers.
Bob Seger & The Silver Bullet Band’s legendary live performances have led to record sales in excess of 51 million which includes 11 platinum and seven multi-platinum RIAA-certified album sales awards. Seger holds the distinction for the #1 Catalog Album of the Decade (2000-2010) for his Greatest Hits, which has sold more than nine million copies in the U.S. to date, posting an unbroken 16-year streak on Billboard’s Top 200 Albums and Catalog Albums charts.
MyOkcMommy's husband is a big Bob Seger Fan. He was happy as can be when the CD's arrived in the mail!! I was a bit young when Nine Tonight was originally released, but of course I have heard these great songs over the years. When I was about five or six my cousin's uncle sang in a band and he sang Old Time Rock and Roll. I remember dancing and dancing. However, most of you probably remember Alf lip-syncing the song!!!! Another Bob Seger song that I remember hearing all of the time when I was growing up is "We've Got Tonight." It seems like every time I hear that song I think of people slow dancing at a wedding reception.
