First off Wichita was on the edge of the blizzard covering most of the country, with blowing snow and winds up to 45 mph, temps in the negative. The show started on time with the opening act Ty Stone and the Truth and although new to a lot of folks the played and jammed very well, their set lasted about 45 min. Then a brief intermission followed by Jamey Johnson whose low voice and style of music reminded be of good ol' country like Waylon, Johnny and both Hanks, Jamey and his band played of a little over an hour, that was when Kid came out and let the audience know that Kid's band was still on the road to the show. and to quote Kid "I aint never canceled a show and I'm not going to start in Wichita" Kid explained that Jamey's band would fill in until Kid's band arrived. After a small break to get the stage right and make a set list. The lights went down and there were the KID and Jamey's band. They played Kid Rock songs, (All Summer Long, Cowboy and others) but they play some songs you may never hear the Kid sing ever again in concert, (Little Pink Houses, Night Moves, Folsom Prison Blues, and more) Too make a long story short Kid's band arrived and although right off the bus they didn't miss a beat, and rock HARD for the next hour, during this show Kid was saying how thankful he was to the audience for traveling through the weather and spending they’re hard earned money to see his show. But he was very thankful to the crowd for understanding exactly what was happing, and show going wrong that turn into maybe the best show I have ever seen. I hope someone can get this to Kid but I saw last night just how much a professional he is and as a man I will never "phone it in" I will do what it takes to get the job done. Thanks Kid you are ROCK.
Stay Cool, and please tell all the bands I really appreciate them also.
