Bob Seger and his Silver Bullet Band are hitting the road for a series of North American dates later this year for their Runaway Train Tour including two in the lead singer's Michigan hometown. More dates are set to be announced in the near future.

The Runaway Train Tour kicks off at the Huntington Center in Toledo, Ohio on August 24th 2017, and will take Bob Seger & the Silver Bullet Band on at least 24 dates in various major cities including Boston, Indianapolis, Cincinnati, Pittsburgh, Atlanta, Houston and Denver. They have two dates in Seger's hometown of Detroit at DTE Energy Music Theatre on September 9th and at Palace of Auburn Hills on September 23rd. 

It was previously announced that the Palace date would mark Seger's seventeenth and final performance at the venue. The last date announced is at Talking Stick Resort Arena in Phoenix, Arizona on October 28th, though more dates are yet to be announced for Los Angeles, Chicago, San Francisco, Seattle and Minneapolis. 

'I have a great time on stage', Seger told Billboard. 'The thing I look forward to is playing with these people. They're so much fun to play with and be with and they make my job easy 'cause they play great and sing great. So that's attractive. Everybody's just on board. Everybody's so committed. They always are. They show up ready to play, and it's wonderful.'

The new tour marks Seger's first with Silver Bullet Band since 2015's Ride Out Tour. The 72-year-old musician will also be launching special vinyl editions of his 1969 debut album 'Ramblin' Gamblin' Man' and his 1994 compilation 'Greatest Hits' to celebrate the latter's new diamond certification from the RIAA. They will arrive on June 9th.
