For the last event at the Palace of Auburn Hills, Bob Seger, the Hometown Hero, plays the last show. 

With all the memories that have been made at the Palace of Auburn Hills in its 29 years, it’s hard to say which one could really be our favorite. After years of amazing talent passing through those doors, both musically and athletically, we say it’s paid its dues, and now has every right to go to “Katmandu.”

We hope all the memories that have been there will stay close to our hearts as we gear up to gravitate all our memory making to Little Caesars Arena, in the heart of Downtown Detroit.

As for Bob, from what this photographer could tell, he was about to put on the show of his life, singing directly to fans to the right of the stage during his performance of “Tryin’ to Live My Life Without You,” and flashing that legendary smile.

And of course, the smile was genuine, as it marked the 17th time that Bob had sold out the venue. The Palace even granted Bob a banner of 17 sell out’s, hanging from the rafters.

A classy end to a lifetime of memories – thank you to the team at Palace of Auburn Hills, and thank you, Mr. Seger.
