Kid Rock announced plans for a fall club tour Friday morning at the Old Newsboys Goodfellow Fund of Detroit's annual tribute breakfast, where Rock was honored as the Edward H. McNamara Goodfellow of the Year.
He said the tour will benefit a to-be-named cultural organization in Detroit, and he hopes to raise around $1 million.
"I want to go out as an ambassador of goodwill for Detroit and Michigan," he said, promising to name the tour's benefactor at a later date.
In addition, Rock said he will raise money for organizations in each town he visits. He expects to donate around $25,000 in each of the 15 or so cities on the tour.
Details are still being ironed out, but Rock expects to launch the month-long outing in the South in mid-November, wind around the country and end back in Detroit "right before Christmas." No venues have been firmed, but a date — or dates — at the Fillmore Detroit or Fox Theatre seem likely.
