“While burners like “Old Time Rock & Roll,” the potent one-two punch of “Travelin’ Man/Beautiful Loser” and a marvelous “Ramblin’ Gamblin’ Man” ratcheted up the energy in the Bridgestone Arena, it was the ballads that best highlighted Seger’s status as an American troubadour.”
– Joseph Hudak, Rolling Stone
“Four songs into Bob Seger’s farewell performance in Atlanta, the friendly man sitting next to me – a first-time Seger concert attendee – proclaimed, “I already got my moneys worth!” Seger had just completed a sturdy take on “Main Street,” complemented by Alto Reed’s chill-inducing saxophone, and a run-through of fiery blues-soul-rockers “Shakedown,” “Still the Same,” and “The Fire Down Below,” so it’s understandable why a fan would feel satiated.”
– Melissa Ruggieri, Atlanta Journal Constitution
“His no-frills passion suggested he might have been the biggest music fan in the building, while his unpretentious demeanor indicated he considered himself no more important than anyone in the crowd… Fueled by upwards of five horns and the lucid, rollicking piano of Craig Frost, the ensemble came across with the resilient spirit…”
– Bob Gendron, Chicago Tribune
“…Seger’s performance didn’t feel like he was doing a chore… He still had the fire; a flame that never burned out.”
– Geoff Burns, Toledo Blade
“Seger came onstage beaming and, as in past shows, he dances and moves about when not seated at piano or playing guitar. The announcement that this is his final string of gigs may have inspired greater stories and tributes, but his energy is high. He is, after all, a consummate showman.”
— Nancy Parisi, Buffalo News
“The best way to describe the two-hour setlist was the kind of music that soothes the soul — a homage to his Detroit roots in blues and rock and roll, and a refreshing departure from the pop and electronic music topping the charts today… Watching 73-year-old Seger and his star-studded band flow through songs effortlessly and energetically was inspiring. After decades of performing, the Silver Bullets knew how to Impress a packed arena without missing a beat.”
—Rachel Bules, OSU The Lantern
“Seger and company are doing what they’ve always done best – hit the stage, push down the pedal and go, in this case for a high-octane two hours and 22 songs… A night filled with the expected brand of old time rock ‘n’ roll and a few welcome surprises.”
