Bob Seger Says He's Planning to Stop Touring Soon
Bob Seger says he's just about ready to turn the page on his career as a touring musician. The Michigan rocker, who recently kicked off a new North American trek with his Silver Bullet Band, tells Canada's QMI Agency, "I'm definitely nearing the end."
The Rock and Roll Hall of Famer, who turns 68 in May, insists, "I can't see myself doing this when I'm 70."
He adds, "I've had a wonderful, wonderful run and my audiences have just kept coming and it's really nice but all good things have come to an end."
Seger, who is putting the finishing touches on a new studio album, admits that if the record ends up being successful, it may delay his planned retirement from the road.
"If [the album does well], then we might tour another year," he says. "We'll see."
Meanwhile, Seger continues to tack on dates to his current outing, which now is mapped out through a May 4 show in Uncasville, Connecticut. Visit BobSeger.com to check out his updated itinerary. Bob's next concert takes place tonight in Winnipeg, Canada.
