Bob Seger has always been a fan of his opening acts because that's how he got his start. Many nights on the tour, it will be 'an evening with Bob Seger & the Silver Bullet Band' with no opening act, but as you can see below, he's bringing a couple of friends along on certain stops: Kid Rock (pictured rehearsing with Bob above) and JazzFest 2012 headliner and rock & roll hall of famer Joe Walsh on others.

Seger has always figuratively left a bucket of blood on the stage which has always raised the level of the headliners performances including KISS, who Seger opened for often in his early career. KISS' Paul Stanley says that when Seger opened, KISS knew they had to take their set up a few notches.

Seger isn't playing Sioux Falls, but there are several shows in the region:
