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).
