A 79-year-old Bob Seger named Evie Branan woke from a five year coma a couple of years ago. Her first words were, "I want to go to a Bob Seger concert.
Branan will get her wish on Thursday. She will attend Seger's show at the Palace of Auburn Hills in Detroit and has a special invitation for an after party.
About six years ago, Branan suffered a massive stroke. Until May 7, 2011, she was unable to speak, move or eat. One of her aides, Jennifer Hickey, bought the tickets and rented a limo. She also contacted Seger's management. Ann Tenbrusch, who works for the company that manage Seger, wanted to make the night special. Tenbrusch explains:
“(Her story) was definitely nothing I had heard before. I always want to try to help out with stories like that because Bob loves his fans. It’s such a cool story I just wanted to help out in any way I could.”
What does Branan look forward to doing the most? She says, "Hugging Bob Seger and giving him a big smooch."
