Bob Seger at the FedEx Forum 

This week, Memphis transitions from unreliable arena rock — see last week's preview in this space to the since-aborted Guns N' Roses concert — to old reliable arena rock in the form of rock-and-roll lifer Bob Seger. Motown's Kid Rock precursor, Seger started as one of Chuck Berry's children and has now made a transition from Dad Rock to Granddad Rock: It's been 35 years since Seger exhorted "sweet sixteens turned thirty-one" to stay in the game. But however corny "Old Time Rock and Roll" may be, actual old-time rock-and-roll — the Berry/Stones riff tradition Seger built his career on — holds up pretty well, as most of the new two-disc Seger compilation Ultimate Hits: Rock and Roll Never Forgets attests. And amid the most familiar hits — including, of course, the classic "Night Moves" — expect Seger to pay his local respects with his "old Memphis song," his cover of Otis Clay's Hi Records soul single "Trying to Live My Life Without You." Bob Seger plays FedExForum on Saturday, December 10th. Showtime is 8 p.m. Tickets are $69 and $43.
