Bob Seger joined Elton John and Kiss in making a final tour stop through Fresno on Tuesday night.

The 73-year old rock and roller (or, old-time rock and roller) played Fresno’s Save Mart Center with his Silver Bullet Band. The tour continues through to early March, with a final show in Texas.

Seger helped define a new Detroit music sound in the later ’70s and ‘80s that was built on straight-ahead rock and roll, accentuated by Seger’s raspy-throated vocal style. He had a string of hits including “Turn the Page,” “Night Moves,” “Like a Rock,” and “Shakedown,” from the film “Beverly HIlls Cop II.”
