Kid Rock is not someone you would normally associated with a symphony orchestra but Rock is known to take the stage for a good cause that is exactly what he will be doing on May 12th. Atlantic sent over these details:

Kid Rock is teaming up with Leonard Slatkin - "America's Music Director" - and the men and women of the Detroit Symphony Orchestra who will take the stage of Detroit's Fox Theatre for a one-night only fundraising concert to raise critical funds for the orchestra.

The idea was originally conceived by Kid Rock and Rock Ventures Founder Dan Gilbert to help save the DSO. "As a musician, and of course a Detroiter, I am proud to be supporting this longstanding cultural institution," said Kid Rock. "And while I know these ticket prices are more than what my fans are used to paying, I am confident that whatever happens when we put the Twisted Brown Trucker Band, a 80 piece orchestra, and 'Bawitdaba' together will be well worth the price of admission."

Kid Rock, the Fox Theatre, Leonard Slatkin, and the DSO are volunteering their services for concert. All proceeds from the concert will be directed to the DSO, which also funds outreach, engagement, and community service work in schools, hospitals, retirement centers, places of worship, and community centers across Southeastern Michigan.

All tickets will be sold exclusively through paperless ticket delivery to ensure fans secure and convenient access to event tickets at the original sale price. There will not be physical tickets for entry into the event. Concert-goers will be required to bring the credit card used for purchase along with government-issued photo ID for entry. Ticket purchaser must be present with all guests at time of pick up and entry into the venue. Ticket usher will swipe the purchaser's credit card upon entry and present each person in the party with a seat locator slip for quick access into the show.
