Bob Seger Music Finally Joins iTunes
Bob Seger released music via iTunes for the first time ever today (Sept. 13), when reissues of his ‘Live Bullet’ and ‘Nine Tonight’ concert albums were made available for purchase from the Apple music retailer. The reissue of the multi-platinum records, which are digitally remastered and each come with bonus tracks, are also now available through the Amazon.com MP3 store, as well.
“We’re finally doing it,” Seger told USA Today. “We’re going digital.”
As previously announced, both albums come with an additional song. The ‘Live Bullet’ release includes a rare recording of ‘I Feel Like Breaking Up Somebody’s Home’ from Seger’s sold out show at the Pontiac Silverdome near Detroit, while ‘Nine Tonight’ is packaged with the tune ‘Brave Strangers,’ from 1978’s ‘Stranger in Town.’
To celebrate Seger’s introduction to iTunes, a digital ‘Bonus EP’ will be available for ‘Live Bullet’ and ‘Nine Tonight’ download for one week only exclusively through iTunes. The disc includes tunes such as ‘Mainstreet’ and live versions of ‘Hollywood Nights’ and ‘Ramblin’ Gamblin’ Man.’
In addition, Bob Seger & the Silver Bullet Band have fleshed out the second leg of their 2011 North American touring schedule, adding dates through a Dec. 3 gig in Philadelphia. They will now touch down in a total of 13 cities, with West Coast dates expected to be added shortly. Check out their current itinerary here.
