Kid Rock takes "pay cut" for affordable "$20 Best Night Ever" tour
Kid Rock and his Twisted Brown Trucker Band will spend the summer canvassing the U.S. on a discounted trek they've dubbed the "$20 Best Night Ever" Tour.
Rock and his backing band will kick off the amphitheater outing June 28 in Bristow, VA, venturing through 27 major markets into mid-September. Three consecutive hometown shows in Detroit, MI, are slated for Aug. 9-11.
Kool & The Gang, ZZ Top and Uncle Kracker will provide opening support on select dates. Tickets go on sale in some cities beginning April 12 via Live Nation.
Kid Rock is making waves with this tour, setting ticket prices in all sections at $20, with no additional fees. Along with the affordable ticket prices, Kid Rock concerts will also feature special $4 draught beers, value food packages, free coffee at show's end, cheaper parking and $20 tour t-shirts, according to a press release.
"Everyone knows the economy is still hurting people across the country, but I didn't want that to be a reason why everyone couldn't get out and enjoy themselves on a summer night," Kid Rock explained in a press release. "So we're going to throw the biggest and best party ever, with prices across the board that are reasonable and transparent. No hidden fees, no gimmicks. ... Someone has to go out there and fight these high prices and change things up, and I'm lucky enough that I can afford to take a pay cut. $20. Best night ever."
Kid Rock's hitting the road behind his latest studio album, "Rebel Soul," which surfaced in November and follows 2010's "Born Free."
