Rock 'n' roll will be revived at the Cajundome
...Kid Rock returns to his usual rock and hip hop element Tuesday when his Rock N' Roll Revival Tour visits the Cajundome. The concert features Rock's 11-piece Twisted Brown Trucker Band with guest performances by Rev. Run of Run DMC, Dickey Betts from the Allman Brothers Band.
Tickets are still available at the Cajundome box office and all Ticketmaster locations.
In his normal rock 'n' roll environment, Rock, 37, continues to excel and excite. His most recent album, Rock n Roll Jesus, was released in October and debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart, with hit singles So Hott and Amen.
Besides selling more than 20 million records since his 1990 debut album, Grits Sandwiches for Breakfast, Rock has received notoriety for his rocky marriage with Pamela Anderson and recent off-stage scuffles and legal wranglings.
Rock has also been in the spotlight for his Revival Tour, which critics have likened to an old-style, traveling Motown Revue. The tour stopped Saturday in St. Louis, where Post-Dispatch pop music critic Kevin Johnson described the show as a "high-rollin', lowdown throwdown of rock, rap, country, honky-tonk and more."
Rock covered everything from This Little Light of Mine to his own hits, like Welcome 2 the Party, Cowboy, Picture and Bawitdaba. Betts and Rock jammed on Ramblin' Man and the old school rap flowed with Rock and Run performing It's Like That, It's Tricky and Walk This Way.
The crowd warmed up with a patriotic show of U. S. servicemen, the national anthem and Born in the USA.
Earlier in the month, in Rock's hometown of Detroit, Peter Wolf of the J. Geils Band joined the show. Adam Graham of the Detroit News wrote "Wolf was spastic and untethered, and was almost the opposite of Rock, who was always composed and professional.
"Run and Wolf joined Rock on-stage at the closer of the show, and Rock ended the show, shirtless, with a towering Bawitdaba."
