Seger fans planning to catch Bob at the Palace next week can expect to hear plenty of familiar favorites, and if the sets he's been performing so far on this year's 'Rock and Roll Never Forgets' tour are any indication, one or two brand new songs.

But does this mean a new Seger album will be dropping soon? (Insert the sound of crickets here.)

Seger has been performing a stripped-down new song called 'All the Roads' at some of his shows on the current tour which began in February. (See the fan-shot video below.)

But on Tuesday night (4/2), Bob treated his audience in Denver to another new nugget, a remake of the Woodie Guthrie penned 'California Stars' made popular by Billy Bragg and Wilco on their Guthrie tribute album 'Mermaid Avenue'. He told the crowd that he'd heard the song on the radio and felt an instant connection.

But are these two new songs an indication of a new album? (More crickets)

Last summer the 'Night Moves' singer told Billboard that he's been sifting through about 70 songs, trying to figure out what to include on his next release, which would be his first album of new material since 'Face the Promise' in 2006.

But so far, one or two new nuggets in concert is all we get. The 'Rock and Roll Never Forgets' tour rolls through Auburn Hills with two stops at the Palace on April 11th and 13th.
