Bob Seger to Re-Release Expanded ‘Live Bullet’ and ‘Nine Tonight’ Live Albums
Both of Bob Seger’s multi-platinum selling live albums are returning to record stores in re-mastered form with exclusive bonus tracks this fall. 1976's 'Live Bullet' and 1981's 'Nine Tonight' will be available on Sept. 13.
‘Live Bullet,’ recorded at Detroit’s famous Cobo Hall following the release of Seger's 1975 'Beautiful Loser' album, features 14 classic live tracks including ‘Turn The Page’, ‘Travelin’ Man/Beautiful Loser’, and ‘Katmandu’. The bonus track here is a rare recording of ‘I Feel Like Breaking Up Somebody’s Home’ from Seger’s sold out show at the Pontiac Silverdome near Detroit.
‘Nine Tonight’ was recorded four years later, with Seger riding high on a career-best string of smash hit albums and singles. It was taped at two different venues, the Boston Garden and (once again) Cobo Hall. It features 16 live hits including ‘Old Time Rock And Roll’, ‘Night Moves’, and ‘Hollywood Nights.' The bonus track this time around is ‘Brave Strangers,' from his beloved 1978 album 'Stranger in Town.'
No stranger to the stage, the first leg of Seger's recent tour (see our review here) found him playing in front of over 350,000 fans. So it’s no coincidence that these live recordings are getting some special treatment.
The 2004 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee is reportedly considering retirement, but for now he's promised to continue his tour this fall, although only one date has so far been officially announced.
