FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WOWO): Another big concert announcement for Fort Wayne:
Bob Seger is the latest musical act to announce a stop at the Allen County War Memorial Coliseum.
The announcement was made this morning on the Coliseum’s facebook page. Coliseum General Manager Randy Brown says it’s been a long time coming:
“Bob Seger played here last on April 14th, 1978. Forty years ago.”
Seger had pledged to never come back to Fort Wayne after some members of his entourage were arrested on drug and alcohol charges, as part of a crackdown police were performing at the time. It seems time has healed those wounds.
The concert, which is part of Seger’s farewell tour, is set for Tuesday, January 15th, 2019. Tickets go on sale to the general public on September 28th. Presales begin on September 25th.
