The confirmation came one day after a tease on his website.  Now, it's official Bob Seger will tour in 2011.

Officials say tour dates will be announced shortly.

"Fans can expect to see and hear Seger’s timeless classics like 'Night Moves' and 'Old Time Rock & Roll' alongside a preview of new songs from his forthcoming as yet untitled new release."

Bob Seger & the Silver Bullet Band played the Van Andel Arena a few years ago.  Keep your fingers crossed and hope he comes back to GR.
