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 that the combination of top notch entertainment and affordable tickets are a win/win for everyone. 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, Conn. and includes 6 special nights in his hometown of Detroit. The 35-date tour hits cities across the country before wrapping up on Sept. 5 in the great state of Washington at White River Amphitheatre in Auburn. Pre-order the album now on iTunes (iTunes.com/KidRock) or starting today, stream the record in its entirety on iTunes Radio – iTunesRadio.com/KidRock.
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 2nd row to the lawn will be $20, with reduced parking and service fees keeping the total ticket price at $30 or under. $20 all-in tickets (including parking) will be offered at participating Wal-Mart stores and at the venue box offices. Fans who purchase a ticket at participating Wal-Mart stores will also receive a coupon for $2 off their 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 attending a Kid Rock show this summer. Plus, $20 special food packages will be available during the shows. And of course, since they were so popular last time around, there will be $4 draught beers and special $20 tour t-shirts available throughout the amphitheaters.
Tickets for the tour will go on sale Feb. 24 on www.LiveNation.com, the same day that First Kiss hits iTunes and stores nationwide. Fan Club members will be able to purchase tickets beginning Feb. 19 and fans who pre-order the album through www.KidRock.com will be eligible for a special pre-sale beginning on Feb. 20.
