Here is an excerpt of an interview Kid Rock recently did with 'Omaha World-Herald.'
Q. You've been known for having big productions with dancers and pyrotechnics. What do you have in store for Omaha?
A. I try to be creative with the music first. That's the most important thing.
But this tour is the biggest we've had. I just said, "You know what, it's summertime. Let's go back to having fun. Let's give people everything. Let's give 'em the lasers and the fire and just things we've toned down."
You know, we used to have girls dancing a lot. Now it's just one or two songs. Now we're doing acoustic stuff. I'll sit at a piano and play a song by myself. New songs, like this song I do about turning 40.
I dig giving people a show. I'd definitely call myself an entertainer first.
Q. Do you still party it up when you're on the road?
A. Yeah. I like to have a good time. I just pick and choose my days a little wiser. It's not fun not sleeping and having to get onstage. It's not fair for the crowd either.
I think I have a night off after Omaha, so I'll probably have a good time.
Q. You were talking about your song, "(Expletive) Forty." Do you feel older or do you still have a "middle finger in the air" kind of attitude?
A. After bouncing up and down to "Bawitdaba" at 40, I can feel it in the lower back the next morning sometimes. I said coming into this whole 40 thing, I have never been one to get into battles that I can't win. That's definitely a losing battle so I'm just gonna embrace it, and I'm looking forward to 50. That's my approach.
