Bob Seger & Kid Rock Coming to St Paul for Special Concert

Events January 18, 2013

Bob Seger and Kid Rock are good friends who have talked about doing shows together for years. Finally, this vision has become a reality. Both artists have been preparing for spring tours. The trick was getting the tour schedules, which are crisscrossing the country, to match up. The result will be two special concerts featuring Bob Seger & The Silver Bullet Band and Kid Rock & The Twisted Brown Trucker Band. The first show will be at Xcel Energy Center in Saint Paul on Friday, March 15 at 8 p.m.

Tickets for the concert at Xcel Energy Center will go on sale at 10 a.m. Saturday, Jan. 26. Tickets will range from $67 to $87. They can be purchased at the Xcel Energy Center box office, by calling Ticketmaster, or online

Seger and Kid Rock go back a long way. The two became friends shortly after they met in 2000. Rock inducted Seger into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2004 and appeared on Seger’s 2006 "Face The Promise" album for a duet of Vince Gill’s “Real Mean Bottle.” Seger appeared on Kid Rock's "Born Free" album playing piano on his duet with Sheryl Crow, “Collide.” Seger and his Silver Bullet Band have often rehearsed at Rock’s rehearsal warehouse. Both share an interest in classic cars and both have stayed true to their Michigan roots.

Seger has written and recorded many timeless classics through his career including "Turn The Page," "Night Moves," "Mainstreet," "Against The Wind," "Hollywood Nights," "Like A Rock," "Rock And Roll Never Forgets," "We’ve Got Tonite," "Old Time Rock And Roll," "Her Strut," "You’ll Accomp’ny Me," "Travelin Man/Beautiful Loser" and "Katmandu." Kid Rock, an early innovator, masterfully clashing hip hop, rock and country musical styles, has written and recorded many classics of his own, including “Bawitdaba,” “Cowboy,” “Only God Knows Why,” “Picture” (duet with Sheryl Crow), “All Summer Long,” “So Hott,” “Born Free,” “Forever,” “American Bad Ass” and from his new album “Rebel Soul.” This will be Bob Seger's third visit to Xcel Energy Center. Previous performances with The Silver Bullet Band were on Nov. 28, 2006 and May 12, 2011. This will be Kid Rock's second time to visit Xcel Energy Center. His inaugural performance was on April 13, 2006.
