Even if you're not a fan of Kid Rock, you and I have to be impressed with him taking a stand against high ticket prices. When Kid Rock plays in St. Louis this summer the show includes a set from ZZ Top which EASILY makes this show worth 20 bucks! If you haven't experienced a Kid Rock show before, this is the one to attend. I've been to several Kid Rock concerts and they've always been F-U-N ! Tickets go on sale 2moro morning at 10am. Here's the press release from Kid Rock and LiveNation, worth reading:
KID ROCK ANNOUNCES MASSIVE “$20 BEST NIGHT EVER” U.S. SUMMER TOUR WITH $20 TICKETS IN ALL SECTIONS AND AMAZING DEALS FOR FANS
DETROIT, MI (April 8, 2013) Kid Rock is breaking all the rules with the announcement of his U.S. Summer tour by offering tickets in all sections (reserved seats and lawn) at an affordable $20 price point, using paperless tickets where possible, and lowering prices on everything from parking to beer to merchandise for every show in every city.
Kid Rock and his Twisted Brown Trucker Band will perform under the stars at Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre on August 24th with ZZ Top and Uncle Cracker.
In addition to the low ticket price, Kid Rock is going beyond the extra mile for his fans. In a first for a Kid Rock tour, participating Walmart locations will offer all-in $20 tickets –no fees, no parking charges, nada.
Kid Rock is reserving the first two rows for every show as free upgrades for lucky fans who will be selected at random. Special $4 draught beers, value food packages, cheaper parking (where possible), free samples of Jimmy John’s sandwiches at select venues, free coffee at the end of the show, and $20 tour t shirts will be available as well.
Says Kid Rock, “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. 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. We’re not sparing any expense on this tour, we're going over the top as always, but that doesn't mean we're going to ask the fans to pay more. If this works we’re going to play to packed houses of fans who appreciate what we’re doing. If it doesn’t, might be a long summer. But 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 is touring in support of his 10th album, Rebel Soul.
