  • 2 shows down

    2 shows down - whew!!! Was not 100 percent the first night but we muscled through it! Felt really good about show 2 and am feeling 99% back to normal after going through an awful respiratory infection and vocal thing. Big thanks to Uncle Ted for rocking out with us on both nights!! Motor city rock n roll is alive and well and it couldn’t be more special than to share and receive the love with all my hometown people and those who have traveled to be here. Thank you to all who have attended and will be!! I feel very blessed to be so fortunate and do not take any of it for granted!! #michiganlove

    • Great KR & TBTB show last night (again) at DTE. Up front tickets for my son & I. Spent a thousand $s (tickets, tailgate, T-shirts & of course BadAss Beer) but the God Time Looking For Me was worth a million. Thanks for the great show KR. Looking forward to the next time already. PS....Motor City Rock N Roll is alive & well! jdmicefishingfool
    • Looking forward to Fri, 8/21. I bought 4 tickets and decided to bring 3 people that have neve been to a Kid Rock concert. (Really? How can you live in Michigan and never seen the Kid?). One is my 28 yr old who is a teacher. We're all getting pumped up for Friday! Not all ticket holders have seen multiple shows, for some it's their first time! cindy109

    • The crowd lovs it when you do something with them,,,So why don't you bring me on stage and we goof it up a bit..Y ou could give me a signed CD or something,,,,LOL AHHHH HAAA O IM So funny. uberfan
    • It has been almost a month since I was supposed to see you on a July Saturday night in Tampa Fl. Unfortunately, I wound up in the ICU early that Saturday morning. I am still super pissed that I missed your show! I tried to get the freaking nurses to put on a concert but they said they could not cuss in the hospital...lol! One of my favorite songs is "Black Chick, White Guy" so that might have ruffled some feathers with the staff! Nobody does it like you, Kid, so maybe it was for the best! By the way, I am happy that you are feeling better! Rock on! tagter
    • I know all I need to know about Kid Rock from seeing the video of him going to a young boys birthday party. That kid will remember that for the rest of his life. Good for you Kid. pan50
    • You know what you would do if you became someone big and famous.You would say that it wouldnt corrupt you,,Well ROCK is that guy!!!! uberfan
    • I can NOT wait for this show tonight. I have tried to get tickets for FIVE years and every year missed out. I heard Kid was adding #9 & #10 so I sat in front of my computer with 2 laptops ready and FINALLY got tickets to tonight's show #10. I was jumping up and down I was so happy! I would have loved to get pavilion seats but only managed to get lawn. But that's ok. We are going to have a blast. See you tonight!!!! onlygirloffive
  • The Buffalo News: "Kid Rock treats fans to a high-energy show"


    Kid Rock fans know how to party … hard.

    Despite a torrential downpour that left many of the early tailgaters waterlogged, fans of renegade rocker Kid Rock weren’t fazed as the cigar-chomping, beer-chugging bad boy from Michigan took to the stage at Darien Lake Performing Arts Center for the latest stop on his “First Kiss Cheap Date” tour.

    Before the sun set, Foreigner opened the night with a 60-minute set of classic hits, including “Feels Like the First Time,” “Dirty White Boys,” and an encore that included arguably their biggest ballad, “I Wanna Know What Love Is.” Though faithful fans of the Lou Gramm-led Foreigner may consider the current line-up little more than a cover band, after a decade at the helm, frontman Kelly Hansen has earned his stripes and does justice to one of rock’s best catalogues.

    But as the sky darkened and the lights went down, the capacity crowd packed into the performing arts center rose and Bob Ritchie strode out onto the stage and wasted no time in proving why he is the best ticket in music today.

    Kid got the crowd to its feet and kept it there for the rest of the night with his blue-collar everyman’s mix of hip-hop, Southern rock and country.

    Kid bounded around the stage with the energy of a man half his age and treated his fans to a set list that covered all of the many genres he has explored in a chart-topping career that has earned him five Grammy nominations and album sales of more than 25 million in the U.S.

    When he broke into 2008’s “All Summer Long,” his first song to reach the top ten on the country charts, if there had been a roof on Darien Lake, his fans very well might have blown it off.

    Music aside for a moment, a tip of the trucker cap to Kid Rock for his $20-ticket policy, a throwback to the days of rock and roll when a pair of tickets and a night out weren’t on par with a mortgage payment. But beyond affordability, kudos for delivering the best live show you’ll ever see. His passion for his craft and energy are both obvious and contagious.

    He may not have the strongest voice, or a genre he can call his own, and with ten studio albums he has never landed a No. 1 single, but Kid Rock has more than all of that – he has an understanding of what it means to be a performer, and he knows how to deliver a night of entertainment that leaves his fans clamoring for more.

    • no fair y'all, I have to stay where it's hot as hades. crazyassmoma
    • SEE ya cant keep a good man down!!! MY NAME IS KKKKIIIIDDDDD,,"BOOM"----Told ya he would be back stronger then ever!!! uberfan
    • Saw him in Texas. One great performer. Will see him again. He was awesome barbaradickerson
    • I just wanted you to know that you were my first sober concert at hard rock park in Myrtle Beach in 2009 it was over the top awesome. I grew up in Taylor Michigan and f live in SC my sister and I are coming to see tonight I Clarkston we have lawn seats, it will be my second sober concert and we are so excited. You've been such an inspiration to me. God bless, we're gonna chill the most tonight. Thanks tonamanns
    • I loved seeing you again at Darien Lake! You and the band were once again awesome! Glad you're back "home" kicking butt to your Michigan fans. Hope to see you at the Fish Fry in October ! chrissyday
