ZZ Top to Join Kid Rock on ‘$20 Best Night Ever’ Tour
(Courtesy of http://ultimateclassicrock.com/) – Kid Rock is gearing up for a monster summer tour that includes low ticket prices, free parking, and a special appearance from his good friends in ZZ Top on many of the dates.
Kid Rock and his Twisted Brown Trucker Band will kick off their expansive summer run in Bristow, Va. at the Jiffy Lube Live on June 28 and wrap it up on Sept. 15 down in Tampa, Fla. at the Live Nation Amphitheatre. The trek also includes three consecutive nights in Kid Rock’s hometown of Detroit, Mich. at the DTE Energy Music Theater. Check out all of the dates below to find out when they’ll be swinging through your neighborhood.
The tour will feature several bands from all musical walks of life getting the show started each night including Kool & The Gang and Uncle Kracker. However, things get taken to a whole new level when ZZ Top and their blues-infused rock join the bill at the end of July to finish out the tour.
Kid Rock clearly put a lot of thought into the tour, putting fans first with many innovative ideas to keep the prices reasonable. “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,” explains Rock. “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.”
He continued talking about his goal with the tour, saying, “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.”
Paying $20 dollars to see ZZ Top and Kid Rock share the stage for one night certainly sounds like a steal so grab your tickets fast because this tour will probably sell out quickly. On sale dates start on April 12 on LiveNation.com.
