A little rain isn't going to stop a Detroit party “‘cause a Detroit party don’t stop” when Kid Rock’s closing out the second of his two sold-out hometown stadium shows.
Early Saturday evening fans were rightfully nervous as they walked out of their preconcert festivities at the different downtown bars and the rock ‘n’ roll carnival in the parking lot just north of the ballpark to head into the final night of Rock’s weekend home stand at Comerica Park under a threatening sky. It was disappointing for some Sammy Hagar and the Wabos fans who lost out on a few songs from the Red Rocker’s opening set as a furious thunderstorm unloaded on downtown concertgoers, prompting promoters to shut him down early.
