Kid Rock on $20 Tickets to Summer Tour Shows: 'No Hidden Fees, No Gimmicks'

His "economy tour" will include lower prices for beer and parking lots either.

Kid Rock will be going old school for his upcoming North American summer tour by only charging fans $20 for tickets in all sections of the venues.

The tour is set to kick off on June 28th in Bristow, VA and will conclude on September 15th in Tampa, FL. The trek will feature rotating support from Kool & the Gang, ZZ Top, and Uncle Kracker.

Apart from the bargain price tickets, Kid Rock's camp says they will be "lowering prices on everything from parking to beer to merchandise for every show in every city." He will be offering $20 tour t-shirts as well.

"Everyone knows the economy is still hurting people across the country, but I didn't want that to be a reason why everyone couldn't get out and enjoy themselves on a summer night," says Kid Rock. "So we're going to throw the biggest and best party ever, with prices across the board that are reasonable and transparent. No hidden fees, no gimmicks."

He continues: "We're not sparing any expense on this tour, we're going over the top as always, but that doesn't mean we're going to ask the fans to pay more. If this works we're going to play to packed houses of fans who appreciate what we're doing. If it doesn't, might be a long summer. But someone has to go out there and fight these high prices and change things up, and I'm lucky enough that I can afford to take a pay cut. $20. Best night ever."

Fans will be able to purchase the all-in $20 tickets at participating Walmart and Live Nation box office locations where they will not pay any additional fees or parking charges, etc. In addition, Kid Rock will be reserving the first two rows for every show as free upgrades for lucky fans that will be selected at random.

If you purchase tickets through other ticketing outlets, those tickets will carry additional service fees and/or parking fees (where applicable).

    Stupid how most venues these days have been renamed for corporate entities that have nothing to do with performing arts.
    Not to mention the names change like every two or three years. And some weird names. Klipsch Music Center? Really?
    In Philly they had the First Union Center which is now the Wells Fargo Center, people use to refer to it as the F.U. Center, I still hear it from time to time.
    Kid Rock's always been a (very) guilty pleasure of mine, but this made me really feel good about him as an entertainer. You can't blame someone for wanting to make money, but it's great that he's helping out his fans all that he can now that he's made his money.
    I don't really care about his music. But that is a seriously good move and if he gains more fans through this... good for him.
    never a fan of his music either but this made me gain a bit of respect for him. I think it's a great move on his part, I'd go see way more shows if they were all $20 and not $100-$150
    I've been waiting to see him for years. This price! I can finally see him and I love all his music.He is a music is art!!!!!
    does this guy have any other songs accept "all summer long", btw very good move.
    All summer long was *IN MY OPINION* his worst song. It sounds like he took Sweet Home Alabama and Werewolves of London, and just merged them together...
    Kid Rock is an awesome guy!! He supports piracy and doesn't mind if peopl steal his album. And now this! What a great guy! I wish his music was a bit better though.
    I only like one or two of his songs (and he isn't coming to my state, so whatevz) but this is actually a pretty good move on his part. Props to him.
    Wouldnt pay 20c to see this flog do anything. Should be shut down immediately.
    His tickets sell at Walmart... lol and yeh I wouldnt listen to his music for $20
