Bob Seger 

8 p.m. Friday, December 9. Scottrade Center, 1401 Clark Avenue.

He's been a Michigan garage-band pioneer, an AM rock god and a Chevy pitchman, but Bob Seger is now, simply, a survivor. A new record is rumored to come out next year. Even if it doesn't, the man has earned a victory lap after 50 years in the rock & roll business. His live shows inspire Springsteen levels of devotion, and the traits that those two men share — a blue-collar work ethic, piano-driven rock, plenty of raspy growling — have long since changed from a young man's angst to an old man's memory. But if "Night Moves" has taught us anything, it's that those memories hold all of our secrets and desires.

Go Because: Even if rock & roll never forgets, it occasionally needs a reminder of who its elder statesmen are.
