The 65-year-old rocker and his Silver Bullet Band are hitting the road for the first time in 4 years.
Dates haven't been announced.
The statement said fans can expect to hear classics such as "Night Moves" and "Old Time Rock & Roll" as well as songs off a forthcoming new album.
Seger hasn't released a record of original material since 2006's "Face The Promise."
"Bob Seger & The Silver Bullet Band will once again deliver their thunderous rock and roll show to major cities across North America beginning in March," the release reads.
Success didn't come fast for the former auto assembly line worker, who began recording in the 1960s but didn't have a top-10 album until the mid-1970s.
After that, though, hit records and singles flowed out of him: "Still the Same," ''Against the Wind," and perhaps his best-known song, "Old Time Rock & Roll" from 1979, which became a pop culture phenomenon when Tom Cruise lip-synched to it in his underwear on the big screen in "Risky Business."
In the years since, Seger's trademark dark hair has turned white and he is seen more often at Detroit Pistons games than on stage or in the recording studio.
But that's about to change with the tour the release said will hit major venues.
