On the day he announced his summer tour, Kid Rock stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live to perform one of his many hits, “All Summer Long.”
Rock’s summer tour, with guests Kool & The Gang, ZZ Top and Uncle Kracker, made news for its $20 ticket price, as the singer tries to keep things fan-friendly for all.
"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,” explains 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. 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."
Tickets go on sale in select markets beginning this Friday, April 12th on LiveNation.com.
