Local Hometown Star Bob Seger Rocks the Silverdome

In the early years, from about 1968 to 1975, the Bob Seger Group performed in many local venues around his Michigan hometown including the Mt. Holly Ski Lodge on Dixie Hwy, many local High Schools, bowling alleys and the 'Battle of the Bands' at Springfield Oaks Park, in Davisburg MI. 


Prior to making it big, he also performed in small venues in Florida, Pennsylvania and a few other Midwest markets. In the Metro Detroit market, his records outsold the Beatles. 

In June 1976, Seger went from playing in front of 50 people in a Chicago bar to three days later, playing in front of 59,000 loyal hometown fans at Pontiac Metropolitan Stadium (Silverdome) north of Detroit. - Segerfile
