Kid Rock Born Free Tour
The kickoff of the tour comes in the form of a 40th birthday party Kid Rock is throwing for himself with 60,000 of his closest friends, at Detroit's Ford Field, home of the Detroit Lions football team.
The stadium will be renamed "40 Field" in honor of the occasion. The special show will include surprise guests and plenty of surprises. Tickets for the Detroit celebration will go on sale November 26th, tickets for the tour will go on sale December 3rd and 4th depending on the market through all the usual outlets.
As usual Kid Rock will be backed by his Twisted Brown Trucker Band. Following the Detroit celebration the tour wraps around the country, hitting arenas throughout the country with this first leg of the tour ending March 12th in Memphis, TN. This is just the beginning of a busy touring year for Kid Rock, who plans to add more dates later in the year. The headlining tour will also feature very special guest Jamey Johnson, whose new album "The Guitar Song" has been drawing rave reviews from fans and critics alike.
This tour comes in support of Kid Rock's just released album "Born Free" which is being released amongst a flurry of promotion. After shaking up the European Music Awards in Madrid last week and the CMA Awards on November 10th, Kid Rock will appear on the live broadcast of the American Music Awards on Sunday, November 21st. A documentary titled "Kid Rock: Born Free" will start airing across MTV, Vh1, and CMT on November 16th, adding to the huge visibility leading up to the release provided by TNT and ESPN sports campaigns featuring the album's first single, "Born Free."
