'Bob Seger Boulevard' set to be unveiled Friday in Allen Park
Michigan rock legend Bob Seger will be honored Friday with the reveal of Bob Seger Boulevard in Allen Park.
The effort to celebrate the classic rocker with a road in his name was a six-month campaign by Big Jim's House Morning Show on WCSX-FM (94.7).
The new Bob Seger Boulevard was a previously unnamed street between Southfield and Philomene near the Allen Park City Hall.
Friday at 6 p.m., the radio station and the City of Allen Park will host an unveiling ceremony with a celebration starting at 4 p.m. A Bob Seger tribute band will play and there will be a video with fans and celebrities congratulating him. Look for the stage set up at Allen Park City Hall, 15915 Southfield.
The campaign, which was promoted with a 24-hour Seger marathon on air, started in May and was originally trying to get a street in Ann Arbor named after the singer, who attended high school there.
Bob Seger plays the Van Andel Arena in Grand Rapids on Nov. 21 and Jan. 5 and the Huntington Center in Toledo on Jan. 9. No Metro Detroit dates have been announced for what he says is his final tour.
