After all the letters we wrote and all other manner of us fans clamoring for your Dad and his friends to "rock and roll us one more", it's our understanding that you two wanting to see your dad perform is what really convinced him to make this tour happen.
I hope that from what you saw on this tour gave you some idea of the depth of the feelings we have for the music your dad and his friends, Bob Seger and the Silver Bullet Band, have made - the significant and positive influences they've had on us over the years.
NOT TO MENTION HOW MUCH FUN WE ALL HAD !!!!
At your ages it might be hard to comprehend the vast well of emotions that millions of people have found in the music of your dad and his friends - just read some of the comments we've written here. Being fans - for nearly 30 years myself (and 5 years or so of talking about it here), it's still so hard for us to put into words.
It's almost a separate and distinct emotion for me. Merely saying "I love it" never really quite covers it - well, I love my cat too. That I camped out overnight for concert tickets for past tours doesn't really prove much - anybody could do that, and make a fast buck re-selling the tickets. I did that simply to be first in line to get the "good seats" up front to see my favorite band. It was all part of the fun and I still enjoy telling these stories. The memories from these experiences are priceless and I would do it again without even thinking about it.
This time around I had some help - and a little bit of luck. And for the second time I got to see my favorite band from the front row! Those who made it happen know who they are so I'll spare the details here - but still wanting them to have full credit for this particular episode of my Silver Bullet story. We were also treated to the post concert party as well, meeting people that are more like uncles and aunts maybe to you. We were made to feel like old friends. A whole bunch of our segernet friends here spent some serious money, traveling to various shows and got to meet each other in person.
This was once in a lifetime for a lot of us, and for some the first time. Dare I compare it to the boy or girl you might have a secret crush on and are too scared to talk to? That might be a stretch, but I'd hope you get the idea. Our after concert photos didn't turn out but the images I have in my mind I'll carry forever - along with the ticket stubs and the t-shirts of course.
We've done our level best to show the love we collectively have for your dad and his friends with the "Rock The Hall" campaign, and now with one sold-out show after another - a tour most of us didn't really think would happen a couple of years ago. It's been a riot of fun reading peoples concert stories and the wave of overwhelmingly positive articles and reviews from across the country.
I'd hope that in the years ahead you both will be as proud, inspired -and at times comforted - by the example of what your dad and his friends created and accomplished.
And savor the memories from this tour as much as we will.

I think you summed it up for all of us that attended this tour.
Thank-You to the Seger family for letting us have your Dad/Husband for a little while.
What great memories we all have now, to add to the older foggy ones. lol.
