Two years ago, 79-year-old Evie Brenan emerged from a coma brought on by a stroke.

Before then, Brenan was bedridden inside a Flint Township nursing home. She was unable to move or communicate for five years.

Then, one morning she fell out of bed, hit her head and her memory gradually returned.

"The very first thing that they said I said was that I want to go to a Bob Seger concert," Brenan said. "And I still haven't figured out why that's the first thing I said."

One thing is clear: she's a big Seger fan.

"I just love to hear him sing. He's cool," she said.

When the staff at the nursing home heard Seger was performing at the Palace of Auburn Hills they secured a seat for Brenan and sent her off in style.

She had high hopes, but had no idea what was in store.

"Just to get to meet him. I hope I hug him and kiss him and shake my booty for him," she said.

The music legend surprised one of his biggest fans. Seger introduced Brenan to his family. He even took her backstage.

"He squatted down, put his arms around me. He gave me a kiss. I gave him a kiss. Oh! I'm full of Seger kisses," she said.
