Oh, Those Hollywood Nights…

Performing “Hollywood Nights” back in ’78, Bob Seger revs up the crowd with his legendary stage presence and melodic voice, propelling the audience into an epic panic as they shift and throw their bodies all different kinds of directions.

Interesting Quote: “The chorus to this song came into my head one night in 1977 as I was driving through the Hollywood Hills. Our drummer, David Teegarden, played an entire set of drums as we recorded and overdubbed another entire set of drums playing a different pattern.” – Bob Seger

Released as a single from album, Stranger In Town, “Hollywood Nights” reached #12 on the US Billboard Hot 100 and was written by Bob himself about a Midwestern man getting caught up in the hustle and bustle of Hollywood and all of its illusional glamour.

Thrusting his way through the hearts of his fans, Bob is on another level during this particular performance with the Silver Bullet Band backing his iconic vocals and infectious stage energy. We love you Bob, always have!

+ Hollywood Nights Lyrics +

She stood there bright as the sun
On that California coast
He was a Midwestern boy on his own
She looked at him with those soft eyes
So innocent and blue
He knew right then he was too far from home
He was too far from home
She took his hand and she led him along that golden beach
They watched the waves tumble over the sand
They drove for miles and miles
Up those twisting turning roads
Higher and higher and higher they climbed

And those Hollywood nights
In those Hollywood hills
She was looking so right
In her diamonds and frills
Oh those big city nights
In those high rolling hills
Above all the lights
She had all of her skills

He’d headed west cause he felt that a change would do him good
See some old friends, good for the soul
She had been born with a face
That would let her get her way
He saw that face and he lost all control
He had lost all control
Night after night
Day after day
It went on and on
Then came that morning he woke up alone
He spent all night staring down at the lights on LA
Wondering if he could ever go home

And those Hollywood nights
In those Hollywood hills
She was looking so right
It was giving him chills
In those big city nights
In those high rolling hills
Above all the lights
With a passion that kills

In those Hollywood nights
In those Hollywood hills
She was looking so right
In her diamonds and frills
Oh those big city nights
In those high rolling hills
Above all the lights
She had all of her skills
