Kid Rock Rave
"Best Night Ever", this was the theme of Kid Rocks summer tour that sold out a record 8 shows at DTE Energy Music Theatre this past summer. With $20 tickets for any seat in the house, $20 t-shirts and $4 beer how could anyone resist taking him up on his offer? Well, not me and if you weren' t there you should have been. As a Kid Rock fan I was drooling with anticipation of the live performance hoping he would play a variety of his hits as well as some of his deeper tracks that resonate with me.
The night was perfect and the crowd was friendly with a diverse group of all ages old and young. Crowds of people filled the parking lot with sounds of Kid Rock blasting through car speakers and people enjoying their pre-show cocktails. Outside the venue Kid's cars were roped off for fans to check out and take photos. Entering DTE you could smell the aroma of Clarkston's own Union Station Restaurants famous mac and cheese and the Woodshop Resaurants barbeque. As we made our way toward the concert area the local Shriner's were selling Kid Rock/Shriners t-shirts with the proceeds going the organization. I really thought it was great that Kid was utilizing local buisness owners and charities during these hometown shows as well as the low dough show he was offering!
Why would anyone not want to see this show? You can write this down in the books as a show to compare with the classics like Bob Seger, Lynard Skynard, Foghat, Creedance Clearwater Revival and even old school rap artists like Run DMC or country artists like Hank Williams Jr. All of these genres of music wrapped into a tight package make Kid a master of mixing different types of music into a beat laden country rock and rap stew that tastes oh so good! You must partake in this feast!
Shortly after arriving at our seats the opening band ZZ Top starts their string of classic hits. From "Sharp Dessed Man" to "Tush" and "Cheap Sunglasses" the band didn't miss a step all while lathering the crowd...
