Bob Seger & Greta Van Fleet

Saturday @ DTE Energy Music Theatre

 

 

There he goes… up on the stage… playing another sold out show to a crowd of captivated fellow Michiganders. This time, Bob is bringing Zeppelin-esque Frankenmuth up-and-comers Greta Van Fleet along for the ride. Tickets are still available on the secondary market, but they’re going to cost you.
