Originally released in 1976, Live Bullet was recorded at Cobo Hall in Bob Seger’s hometown of Detroit, Michigan. The album has sold over five million copies and features 14 classics, including “Turn The Page,” “Travelin’ Man/Beautiful Loser,” “Katmandu,” plus a live bonus track exclusive to this newly remastered edition, a rare recording of “I Feel Like Breaking Up Somebody’s Home” from Seger’s sold out first stadium show at the Pontiac Silverdome.
Originally released in 1981, Nine Tonight was also recorded, in part, at Detroit’s Cobo Hall, as well as at Boston’s Boston Garden. The five-times platinum album features 16 live hits, including “Old Time Rock And Roll,” “Night Moves,” and “Hollywood Nights,” plus a live bonus track exclusive to this newly remastered edition, “Brave Strangers.”
Both titles will be released with restored original artwork and updated packaging and offered in a special CD/T-Shirt Box combination at select retailers.
Bob Seger & The Silver Bullet Band’s legendary live performances have led to record sales in excess of 51 million which includes 11 platinum and seven multi-platinum RIAA-certified album sales awards.
