(PCM) Surprisingly, during my teenage years in the mid-nineties into the early 00′s Kid Rock was an artist that I had yet to witness in concert and now that I have finally seen him live, I have without a doubt figured out what I had been missing! He was phenomenal!
It is completely evident from the time that Kid Rock and his band take the stage that his man has placed his heart and soul into both his music and his stage performance. He is also incredibly gracious and appreciative of his fans stopping several times during the set to say thank you to them for their unwavering support throughout the years. It was even apparent judging by the ticket cost at only $20 and the lower priced merchandise available at this show that Kid Rock has his finger on the pulse of how hard it is to get out to a show during this hard economic times and certainly provided fans with a lot of bang for their buck so to say.
Kid Rock performed a solid set filled with a perfect blend of both old and new songs and a few of my favorite moments had to be finally hearing “Devil Without A Cause” , “Cowboy”, “All Summer Long” and “Only God Knows Why” live and again, it was certainly worth the wait. Kid Rock is one hell of an entertainer and this tour certainly provides one of the biggest and baddest rock shows to close out the summer!
Kid Rock just performed eight sold-out shows in his Detroit hometown as part of his 2013 summer tour, which also includes a headlining gig at the Harley 110th Anniversary in Milwaukee, WI before the trek wraps in late September.
In other Kid Rock news! We are absolutely thrilled that we are going to have the opportunity to witness this bad-ass performer twice this year, as we have just learned that Kid Rock has been added to the already stellar line-up for this year’s Voodoo Music and Arts Experience! Kid Rock joins a bill led by Pearl Jam, Nine Inch Nails, The Cure, Calvin Harris, Bassnectar, Paramore, and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis and more!
