(WOMC) — It’s time to say goodbye to The Palace of Auburn Hills.
Detroit’s own Bob Seger will be the final performer at The Palace on Saturday.
A sellout for Seger’s concert will be his 17th sold-out show at the venue, a record for most sold out concerts at the arena.
Seger’s shows caps nearly a three-decade history of memorable shows and high-profile sports moments.
The first show at the Palace was Sting on August 13, 1988.
Seger and his Silver Bullet Band have played a major part of the venue’s history. In 1996, he played a string of sold out dates (March 10, 12 and 14 and on May 3, 5 and 17), setting a venue record for most sellouts during the same tour.
No decisions or timetable regarding future plans for the building or the property have been made at this time.
