Kid Rock and Florida Georgia Line Rock National Concert Day

( On Tuesday (May 5) was National Concert Day and Live Nation celebrated by putting on a unique show. A select group of attendees, made up of fans, media and at least a few musicians, got to see intimate performances by Kid Rock and Florida Georgia Line in New York City's relatively small Irving Plaza.

The show, hosted by Hoda Kotb of the Today Show, also included on-stage interviews with Billy Corgan, Tanishe, Rae Sremmurd, Metric and Mick Jones of Foreigner.

Florida Georgia Line took the stage at around 5:30 p.m. ET and started their set with "Anything Goes," their album's title track. It visibly took them a moment to adjust to playing to such a small room, as they haven't been out of stadium-sizes in a minute. When their guitarist and bassist, who are used to much bigger stages, wanted to do a solo and rock out, respectively, it became a little overwhelming. Brian Kelly solved the problem by ditching his guitar for the next two songs, taking a moment after the firs to flicks his pick into the very female audience and illicit squeals. The guys rounded our their set by playing their current single, "Sippin' on Fire," and their massive summer jam, "Cruise."

By the time they finished, both Kelly and Tyler Hubbard were sweating, proving they were doing all they could in the air-conditioned venue to work it hard for the audience of under a thousand lucky people.

Kid Rock and his band of 12 players took the stage next, for a quick two-song set. He broke out his 2010 cover of "Born Free" and "All Summer Long," his tribute to "Sweet Home Alabama." Rock is a masterful entertainer who manages to captivate the room, even working to this much smaller crowd. We earn his seal of approval, a thumbs up, during "All Summer Long" by singing the chorus to his approval, although the ladies are the stars he notes when he asks, "Are y'all trying to steal the high part from me?"
