Take those old records off the shelf.

Bob Seger & the Silver Bullet Band announced Thursday that the Runaway Train Tour will stop at Sprint Center on Oct. 14. The release for the show says it will be Seger’s “last time at Sprint Center.”

Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. June 16 via LiveNation.com.

Select dates will feature Nancy Wilson of Heart.

Seger last stopped in Kansas City in 2015.

“Dressed in a black button-up shirt, jeans and black headband, Seger looked more like someone ready to do yard work than put on a rock show,” contributor Joel Francis wrote in his review of that show. “He performed a few songs sitting down, strumming an acoustic guitar, and a couple of numbers behind the piano, but for the most part he was all over the stage, pumping his fists in the air and leading singalongs — not that the energetic crowd needed any encouragement.”

His setlist from that show: Roll Me Away/Tryin’ to Live My Life Without You, The Fire Down Below, The Devil’s Right Hand, Mainstreet, Old Time Rock and Roll, It’s Your World, Come to Poppa, Her Strut, Like a Rock, Travelin’ Man/Beautiful Loser, All of the Roads, Hey Gypsy, We’ve Got Tonight, Turn the Page, Ramblin’ Gamblin’ Man. Encore 1: Against the Wind, Hollywood Nights. Encore 2: Night Moves, Rock and Roll Never Forgets.

Fans looking to hit multiple shows this time around will be overjoyed to know the tour stops in Des Moines on Oct. 10 and St. Louis on Oct. 12. The full itinerary is here. Presale info can be found at BobSeger.com.
