Stream album "First Kiss" in its entirety on iTunes Radio now
Kid Rock broke all the rules when he last set out on tour, and now he's back to break them all again. The "$20 Best Night Ever" tour set all sorts of attendance records, proving the combination of top-notch entertainment and affordable tickets is a win/win. Now, with the eminent release of his new album "First Kiss," (his first on Top Dog/Warner Bros. Records) Kid Rock, along with his trusted Twisted Brown Trucker Band, is announcing a full summer tour with very special guest Foreigner.
The tour kicks off June 24 in Hartford, includes six special nights in Detroit, and wraps Sept. 5 in Washington. The tour stops locally Aug. 4 at Darien Lake Performing Arts Center.
Tickets for this tour, which is again being promoted by Live Nation, will be handled as they were for the last run, with every effort made to keep fees down and scalpers at bay. Tickets from the second row to the lawn will be $20, with reduced parking and service fees keeping the total ticket price at about $30 or less. $20 all-in tickets (including parking) will be offered from participating Walmarts and at the venue box offices, and everyone who purchases a ticket at Walmart will receive a coupon for $2 off the purchase of "First Kiss." One thousand tickets from each show will be put on sale via LiveNation.com's platinum ticketing program to combat scalping.
The first row of seats for every show will be held back and given as free upgrades for lucky fans, and $20 special food packages will be available during the shows.
On Sunday, Kid Rock will perform before the start of the Daytona 500 and " First Kiss" will be debuted live for the first time. Fans can tune to FOX by 12:15 p.m. ET to catch the performance. Following that, he'll appear on "The Tonight Show" Feb. 23, "Today" Feb. 24, and, in a first for Kid Rock, he's going to experiment with this new technology called "Twitter" Thursday, when he takes over the iTunes Twitter handle at 5 p.m. to answer fan questions.
Tickets for the tour will go on sale the day "First Kiss" is released, Feb. 24, via www.LiveNation.com. Fan Club members will be able to purchase tickets beginning Thursday, and fans who pre-order the album through www.KidRock.com will be eligible for a special pre-sale beginning Friday.
