American rock 'n' roll legend Bob Seger has announced a one-night performance at Des Moines' Wells Fargo Arena.

The Oct. 10 gig is part of Seger's "Runaway Train" tour, which starts Aug. 24 in Toledo, Ohio, and ends Oct. 28 in Phoenix, according to Seger's website

The website shows the Des Moines concert kicks off at 7:30 p.m. Tickets cost $57-$97 and go on sale at noon, June 16 via Hy-VeeTix.com, at the Wells Fargo Arena box office or participating Des Moines and Ames Hy-Vee locations.

Nancy Wilson of Rock and Roll Hall of Fame outfit Heart is set to open the show. 

The Runaway Train Tour announcement coincides with the vinyl reissues of Seger's 1994 double LP, "Greatest Hits," which will be released on June 2 along with a reissue of his 1969 major label debut studio album, "Ramblin', Gamblin' Man," Rolling Stone reported.

These dates could mark the last major run of American dates for the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer. Teasing the announcement earlier this week on social media, Seger said "on the road again, up on the stage, one last time." 

The Detriot native launched his multi-decade, acclaimed career in the 1960s and found international success in the 1970s and beyond with hits such as "Rock and Roll Never Forgets," "Turn The Page," and "Still The Same."

Seger teased the impending Des Moines show on his Facebook earlier this week, posting a photo with the caption, "Hey, Des Moines, rock 'n' roll never forgets." The "Runaway Train" tour is also set to make a stop in the Quad Cities, at the iWireless Center in Moline. 

Earlier this week it was announced that Seger's "Greatest Hits" album reached the RIAA Diamond sales pinnacle, marking 10 million copies sold.
