  • 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

    • Had a great time in the second row on Saturday! Bob, Ted and the TBTB rocked the house! Flew in from Kansas City for the weekend to visit my girl Ria. Danced my butt off both nights, no need for a gym visit all weekend! Back in KC now, but missing the D! Huge admiration for what you all do. I couldn't wipe the smile off my face the whole time! Thanks for a great time! kimberleyclark
    • ROCK--I posted this when the Troops got there donations from kid rock..I wanted Everyone to see this-------I was watching the news the other night and my 7 year old said God Bless AMERICA dad.My son belongs to a group of boys called CUB SCOUTS.It is a younger part of the BOY SCOUTS of AMERICA.They went to one of the biggest cemetery's in town on Memorial day and put small FLAGS on all the soldiers graves.So all you could see was a mile of Cub Scouts putting a Mile of FLAGS on the graves.When they were done I stood in awe at the miles of flags.They were told to line the FLAGS up with the cross's on the stone so they all would line up perfect.Then they were to salute it and say "Thank you for your service" and move to the next one.Watching it brought tears to my eyes..So that lesson I did not have to give.My son felt the words he said to me and I just looked back at him and said Ya son "GOD BLESS AMERICA" uberfan
    • Seen you for the first time tonight at DTE. You brought a tear to my eye. You are very humble. I have never been to a concert and been thank for spending hard earned money to come see them perform. Life is about friends and family. Born Free!! patricetomlin
    • What happened to the $20 T-Shirts the website advertised? All Tee's at the concert last night were $25! strohgds
    • I'm not understanding what Platinum seats mean. Called Ticketmaster today and my girlfriend and I tried upgrading seats for one of the 2 shows which are both Platinum seating and we found better seats that were cheaper and they would not exchange seats! We were not asking for any money back just better seats. Not understand the benefit of purchasing Platinum seats which we purchased for 2 different shows! Can someone explain it to me! Thanks so much maryloveskid

  • 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.
