SAGINAW, MI (WNEM) -

Bob Seger & The Silver Bullet Band made a stop at the Dow Event Center in Saginaw on Thursday.

It's part of their 2017 North American Tour, which will also has two more shows later this month in Grand Rapids and Detroit.

A Sept. 9 show at the DTE Energy Music Theatre sold out.

Earlier this year, Seger’s GREATEST HITS album was certified diamond by the RIAA for achieving 10 million units sold in the U.S.

In 2015, Seger was honored with Billboard’s “Legend of Live” award at the 12th annual Billboard Touring Conference & Awards for his significant and lasting impact on the touring industry. 

"I'm glad he's out there kicking it," said Carol Franklin, fan.

Thursday was her seventh time seeing the icon on tour. She is from Traverse City and drove all the way to Saginaw to see him perform.

"I'm glad for him. He's kind of getting up there in age as are a lot of fans like myself are. So a lot of respect and certainly wish him the best," Franklin said.

She said his music has had a big impact on her life.

"He tells a story, which resonates with a lot of people about just getting away and checking out of reality. And telling the establishment maybe where to put it," Franklin said.

Only time will tell if the ramblin' gamblin' man will hang up the strings.
