This week in music: Bob Seger, Kid Rock roll into Twin Cities


Bob Seger rolls into Minnesota this week, and he's bringing a fellow Michigan native, Kid Rock, with him for the ride for a Friday concert at Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul.

Seger, 67, kicked off his tour Feb. 28 in front of a sold-out crowd Toledo, Ohio. A review in the Detroit Free Press said the "Old Time Rock and Roll" star "showed absolutely no signs of his age as he tore through 'Her Strut,' 'Nutbush City Limits,' 'Katmandu,'" and added that the singer's "voice was strong and he moved with energy, fully committed to rocking out."

The Free Press also noted that Seger "delivered a surprisingly diverse 23-song set of music over two-plus hours that covered his entire career while mixing in some welcome new material."

The Rock and Roll Hall of Famer also earned high marks for his show in Green Bay, Wis., on Friday, as the Green Bay Press Gazette said "Seger's voice, like his spirit, was strong," and the show was like a "classic rock equivalent of a two-hour Harley ride."

Also in the Twin Cities this week is Brit Floyd, who play the State Theatre in Minneapolis Thursday.

The premiere tribute group to legendary British rockers Pink Floyd, Brit Floyd celebrates the group with note-for-note performances of five full album sides from "The Dark Side of the Moon," "Wish You Were Here," "The Wall," "The Division Bell" and "Animals."
