Bob Seger hoping to shoot concert DVD as tour ends
With his Face The Promise tour wrapping up on Saturday, March 17th, Bob Seger is hoping to get some last-minute work done and shoot footage for a concert DVD. The show will be his third this week at home in Detroit, and Seger told us that he really hopes things work out better this time than they did back in December at some other hometown gigs: "The first night, the sound sounded great and the lighting was bad, second night, the lighting was a little bit better, but too much light, and it didn't look real, and then the sound was horrible, because the guy went to Turkey! So I'm hopeful that we'll be able to do these three (shows in Detroit) and get a better product. I just didn't think the product was very top-notch. I thought the band played good, but the sound wasn't great -- but the look was the thing that I didn't like, the lighting wasn't good."
The show tomorrow is at Cobo Hall in Detroit, where Seger recorded his 1976 concert album Live Bullet.
Seger's never said this is his last tour, but he is planning to take off at least until October before deciding if he wants to go back out again.

If and when it does happen, it will be fantastic, but remember what we all went thru waiting for FTP.
P.E. does not have a great track record with these things.
This is from WikiPedia:
Kid Rock and Twisted Brown Trucker (see below) were to release a live DVD of their performance at the Palace of Auburn Hills, Michigan on May 12/May 13, 2006 by the end of 2006, which never materialized.
I have zero knowledge of the music/entertainment industry.... Does the artist (Bob or KR as the case may be) call all the shots or is it management or some combination of the two ?
Holding my breath with anticipation while suffering with the beginings of Bob_Seger-&SBB_Withdrawal_Syndrome.....

In my opinion the quicker they put together the concert DVD the more interest it will generate whilst the tour is still fresh in every fans mind.Of course they are now talking about some additional concert dates later this year so they might delay the release until the tour is well and truely over although I do not think this would be necessary.
Lets hope they get it together sooner rather than later.At least we know that Bob Seger and PE were serious about capturing footage on this tour so they have the motivation and I do not think that motivation had been there in the past.New technology may have changed their thinking I guess.

Two things that didn't materialize though were the Tribute CD and the Crossroads special. Those both would have been sweet. I was hoping in one of the upteen interviews somebody would ask about them and/or the back catalog. Nobody ever asked them that I ever saw.
I heard on one of the Detroit stations that they have a working title for the live CD/DVD (if it comes out) as "Return of the Bullet" so here's hoping! I will buy it on day 1 just like I did for FTP.

This concert has a great set-list, one of the best he's ever done, and the energy level was off the charts. I guess the master tape of the show is rotting away in the vault. Such a waste, really.

There is a quick shot if the band featuring Drew Abbott (the last tour he would be a part of) and a grizzly Craig Frost (far right walking to the band).
Seger's people definitely have some great stuff yet, and judging by the quality in the music video, I'd say the Largo DVD exists in much better shape than what has circulated!
quickly looking over the whole turn the page movie, I count (so far) over 5 shots from the largo show.

I started to mention the DVD in the sub-headline of that post and hit the enter button by mistake. Sorry.
